Business Philosophy

Our goal is to make lifelong customers – customers who call only us for sewer, drain and plumbing services and who recommend us to their friends. Repeat business and word-of-mouth referrals are the cornerstones for keeping our Company viable. We must satisfy our customers. We want our customers to take joy in our products and services. Satisfied customers come back!

The Company is guided by a basic principle: We will treat our customers like we want to be treated. This principle is supported by 10 commandments or practices of good business – listed below – which every employee is expected to embrace and demonstrate:

  • The Customer is the most important person in our business.

  • The Customer is not dependent on us – we are dependent on him or her.

  • The Customer is not an interruption of our work – he or she is the purpose of it.

  • The Customers does us a favor by calling us – he or she has a choice in selecting whom they want to do business with.

  • The Customer is part of our business – not an outsider. The Customer is not a voice on the phone – he or she is a flesh-and-blood human being with feelings and emotions like our own.

  • The customer is not someone to argue or match wits with. The customer is a person who brings us his or her wants – it is our job to fill those wants.

  • A Customer is deserving of the most courteous and attentive treatment we can give.

  • A Customer is the life-blood of ours and every other business.
