Since 1965...

Family Owned and Operated

Downs Septic and Drain Service Inc. has provided reliable Drain Cleaning and Septic System service to our customers since 1965.

Robert Downs purchased Ackley's drain service in 1964 and changed the company name a short time later to Downs Drain & Septic Service.

In 1980 Robert semi-retired and his sons Mike and Randy took over the day to day operation of the business.

Mike and Randy continued to provide the drain cleaning and septic system services their father did since he purchased the business.

Time Passes

Dad retires, Sons get to work

Mike started working for the company at 14 riding with his dad on service calls. In 1977 Mike started running the service department and running his own drain cleaning and septic service calls.

Randy began working for Downs in 1979 part-time and then began full-time employment in 1983 taking over the service department from Mike.

With Randy taking over the service department work, Mike was able to take assume the responsibilities of the septic tank division.

Mike's wife Tina began her duties as office manager in 2000 and is the sweet voice who answers your phone calls most of the time at Downs.

Our Drain Cleaning and Septic System Client Testimonials

Pam B.

Happened to be home for the day, called on the spur of the moment and was guaranteed same day service. Many thanks to Tina for arranging that and to Kevin for prompt and professional service. We have been using Downs for over 30 years and have ALWAYS appreciated the quality and professionalism we have been provided. This is a great example of a friendly, knowledgable, family business that takes pride in their work.

Mike came out and was very professional. I had no idea how the system worked. Mike took the time to explain how the system works and each step of what he was doing to clean out the tanks. He explained everything in a way that didn't make me feel dumb about asking the questions. Mike is very knowledgeable and patient. Also, when my wife called into ask about pricing and and scheduling the service, the person on the other end was very kind and provided accurate information. We will be keeping with Downs Cleaning in the future.

Melissa P.

They did a great job! They went the extra mile to preserve the walkway that had to be removed. They were able to put it back and looks like it was never removed. They were professional and nice. I would recommend them to anyone.
