MOUNT JOY, Pa, September 9, 2016 – John Kline Septic Services in Mount Joy, Pa is proud to celebrate four years in business this month. The family owned business specializes in residential septic pumping, inspections and 24/7 emergency service. With 60 years of experience, John Kline is a name you can trust for quality service and expertise.
In 2012, following his career as Co-Owner and Vice President of Kline’s Services in Salunga, Pa, John Kline and his sons, Kyle and Keaton, established John Kline Septic Services. The business provides residential septic services in Lancaster, Lebanon, York and Dauphin counties. All of John Kline Septic Services’ technicians are PSMA certified to perform both real estate and township inspections, as well as small repairs and diagnostics.
“It’s our goal to provide a clean and quality residential septic service at a fair price. We want to empty your septic tank, not your wallet,” said John Kline.
In addition to quality workmanship and fair pricing, Kline emphasized the importance of family in the business. It was John’s grandfather who established Kline’s Septic Service in 1955. Ownership later transferred to his son Marshall and the business operated from the family farm in Salunga. The original business is no longer family owned and that is why John decided to continue the Kline tradition with his own residential septic business.
For the Klines, working together is a way of life. Sons Kyle and Keaton operate the pump trucks while John Kline and his wife, Robin, schedule jobs and maintain the office with the help of some part time staff. It seems like the Klines have found the right balance of work and family as the business is celebrating its fourth successful year this summer. With the addition of a second pump truck and a service van this year, they are able to handle more business and services like hydraulic load testing, grease removal and diagnostic work.
“We’ve got four generations of experience in the septic business so we're proud to be family owned. This isn't a glamorous job, in fact it's really dirty, but our business is growing because people value our work ethic and some of our customers remember working with my dad and my grandpa when they were young," said Kyle Kline. "We've established a name that people know and trust and it feels good to get positive feedback from our customers as my brother and I take over daily operations."
“Working for a family business isn’t always easy but we’re lucky to have such a great team here,” added Keaton Kline.
In celebration of their fourth anniversary, John Kline Septic Services will be offering $10 off all septic services during the month of September, including emergencies. “Many townships require septic pumping every 2-3 years, so if you’re not sure when you’re due, give us a call at 717-898-2333,” said John Kline.
A backed up toilet, sink or shower can be a real pain. But determining who to call can be an even bigger headache. Don't wait until you have an emergency to learn the basics of septic system maintenance! Get the facts.
The easiest way to know if your problem is septic or plumbing related is to count the number of fixtures backing up. If your kitchen sink is the only fixture clogged, you can call a plumber to snake the drain or get to the root of the problem. If you notice that all of your sinks are draining slowly, however, you most likely have a septic backup. Additionally, you can determine it’s most likely a septic system issue if the fixtures backing up are the ones closest to the septic system, such as those on the ground level or in the basement.
Here are more clues your problem is septic related:
We’ve been in the septic business for over 60 years and we’ve dealt with tons of backups – the most common thing we find when we’re looking for the cause of the clog or backup, is flushable wipes! Yes, “flushable” wipes. Don’t let the labels fool you… There is no such thing as a “flushable” wipe when you have a septic system.
Unlike toilet paper that dissolves quickly as soon as it gets wet, baby wipes, cleaning wipes and makeup removing wipes are durable and can take years to break down and dissolve. Don’t believe us? Watch this video.
