Phil started working for the family business in 1976 and spent the following 10 years becoming the senior sewer tech. He was doing anything from cleaning sewers, to pipe replacement, to investigating problem and solving, excavation, locating sewers, broken water mains, etc.
In 1986, Phil and his wife Darlene started “Phil Groves Sewer Services Inc.”. With Phil out on “the tools,” handling service calls, Darlene used her invaluable organizational skills to ensure everything in the office ran smoothly.
When the business was started Phil used the typical tools of the time, which included sewer machines and hand rods. We have progressed to TV cameras, locators, and modern tools and equipment.
We hired our first employee in 1988. Ted Hologroski was the second employee, and is still with us to this day acting as our Field Services Manager.
