A Bit of Our History

Darby Parsons is the President and a owner of A-1 Pumping & Excavating, a business his family purchased in 2013, which at the time consisted of three small tank trucks and some customer records. Brian Chester became an owner in 2018 and currently oversees the daily operations of A-1. Darby, his wife Jody, and Brian — along with their hard working employees, have grown the business into a full service septic and excavating business. They can meet all of your septic tank and sewer & drain cleaning needs along with septic repairs and many other services. They also helped to facilitate the company’s rebrand.
