serving your septic needs
In February of 2000 KIL-CON was founded. We immediately became a distributor for Aquaklear systems. Our humble beginnings were at our residence with our office in our living room. By 2001 we had constructed our current facility in Ava, Illinois.
In 2003 we began our portable toilet business, servicing our existing residential building contractors that were buying septic systems, as well as commercial building contractors, auctions, parties, and other special events as well as providing emergency response to natural disaster response teams.
In 2009 Kil-Con became the manufacturers representative for Aquaklear Wastewater Systems, servicing dealers throughout the southern 2/3 of Illinois.
It has been our policy to maintain steady slow growth ,adding annually to our market share in each respective division of the company, and to maintain quality, and not to outgrow our resources and manpower so as to provide outstanding, consistent service and quality service after the sale of our products.
In 2018 we purchased property for our new facility in Perryville Mo. and began the process of developing that site for future use.
About the President
My experience in the construction industry began less than a year after graduation from high school, operating a dozer and backhoe mostly on farms and small tracts of land developing residential building sites. During the mid 80’s was when I initially became licensed as a septic systems contractor with the state of Illinois. During these years we also became involved in commercial grading and excavating on several notable sites throughout southern Illinois.
In 1990 I accepted a position with a contractor who primarily engaged in installing large sewage collection systems in cities. During the years I worked for them I was involved as a laborer, an operating engineer and as a site foreman. I was involved in the installation of collection piping for municipal waste collection systems.

During the next several years I was involved in the construction of highways, a major wastewater treatment plant, a major water treatment facility, a state correctional facility as well as multiple smaller projects.
In 1997 I accepted a similar position with a commercial building contractor and helped with the excavation for the foundations for several notable commercial structures throughout the region.
