This company, Kothrade Sewer, Water & Excavating, is fantastic! Not only are they professional, efficient and right there when you need them, but as importantly, they took such care with our home. I am now "worry free", knowing that they will be there when I need them and find me the best and most cost efficient solution. I highly recommend the entire team--from the initial phone contact to the service men!

We were in such a crisis when our basement floor drain started backing up the night before my daughter’s graduation party! Kothrade Sewer, Water & Excavating came to our home on a Friday night and the service man was so professional and instilled a great sense of integrity. Our problem was fixed that night and we are now customers for life and would recommend Kothrade to anyone.

When I decided to hook on to city sewer and water last year, I had received a couple of bids from different companies and was about to sign a contract with one of them until my good friend recommended Kothrade Sewer, Water & Excavating. I am so glad they did! They met with me on my property and discussed options and concerns. I was going to have to remove a part of my landscaped flower garden until Kothrade proposed a non-intrusive option. The job was flawless and my yard was virtually untouched. Thank you Kothrade Sewer, Water & Excavating!

Thank you so much for working with us to get our septic done and in in a timely fashion, we really appreciated it. We are loving our new home! We will definitely recommend your services to others that are in need of a new septic.

Thank you!

My experience with the Kothrade team was positive from the first meeting. Glen came out to my property several times to scope out the project and delivered a complete bid with clear components. Once the project started, the team was not only professional but exceptionally personable and willing to answer my questions along the way. Even though I wasn’t allowed to drive the excavator, I’d still recommend the Kothrade team without reservation.

After reviewing three recommended companies, we decided to go with Kothrade for our Dayton city water hook-up project.  They were professional, timely and did what they said they'd do.  They also were very helpful in providing access to other providers such as plumbers, cement installers and black dirt vendors whose services were needed for the total job.  We highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.

I was very worried about replacing my septic system- worried about the quality of the work, damage to my yard, everything. Everyone in the office and on the jobsite was patient, kind and willing to explain every step as the planning and then the work progressed. Thank you Kothrade!

Glen & Pam, 

Today, I had Larry from your company out to pump my septic tanks. The knowledge, politeness and over all service from Larry was top notch. I will pass it along to all I know in the same need and be sure they request Larry. 

Due to me being a novice on septic systems, Larry was patient and answered all my questions with ease. I am a yellow belt now, knowing a little bit more about my system to at least speak knowledgeable!! Well, I might call Larry to help :).

You have a great employee. I hope to take a moment and appreciate his efforts for your company.

Lee, was great on the a appointment set questions up as well.

Thank you for your prompt & professional service on Tuesday, July 5th.  I was at work at the time, but my spouse was very impressed with the service tech you sent to troubleshoot and repair our septic system, and I as well with the courteous and knowledgeable people on the other end of the phone.  He took the time to do things I’m sure others would not have - like cleaning my filter.  My wife is hard to impress, but you scored big, thanks again.

Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for your prompt and courteous service. I called this morning seeking help for a backed up kitchen sink and laundry washer. The problem was taken care  within a couple of hours. My wife has usually been the one home over the years when your services have been required. I very much appreciate the courtesy and professionalism always exhibited by your field personnel. Keep up the good work. 

Lorrie let Joel know he was her “hero”.  No clean clothes rectified, no dinner rectified, Joel is also my hero.

Thank you for a job well done. I appreciated the call and the feed back from the driver. His recommendation no doubt saved us from a problem would have occurred at a  future date. It is a reminder to me what real quality service is about.


Thanks again,

"Lee, thank you so much for your help today. I really appreciate it. Joel was a total rock star! Your company’s service is truly a paragon. You guys will definitely be doing my pumping as soon as road restrictions are lifted.  (I have no idea when that will be, please feel free to contact me when you’re ready to pump). Thank you again for your impeccable service."

Good Morning Lee,

I just had Larry out to pump my very full tanks. I can’t express enough what a pleasure it is doing business with your company. Prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, professional... Everything a top notch operation should be. You guys are truly awesome! Thank you so much. Please keep me on a three year pump cycle. I will be telling everyone I know that has septic needs to use Kothrade. Thank you again.

Your loyal customer,
