Oscar was quick, responsive, professional and honest for my water heater repair. He came in after hours to review the situation and completed the work the next day. He went above and beyond to make sure the repairs were up to a high professional standard and did not cut any corners while staying at his quoted price. Highly recommended.

Hired HP Handyman Services to repair some minor plumbing and electrical problems. The contractor was punctual, knowledgeable, and was able to make the needed repairs in less than 2 hours. Cost was $173, which seemed a little high based on the time involved, but he did provide some materials to do the work, just no itemized cost for labor and materials to determine the hurly rate. The fact that he worked on a Sunday and his professional attitude would lead me to hire this contractor again.

Ali with A1 Budget Plumbing was great. He was extremely polite and professional, he was responsive and punctual, and he worked quickly to make a repair to a (relatively) simple outdoor plumbing/sprinkler/irrigation issue. I would definitely hire him again.

Greg came out to replace my hot water heater and to install a new sewage ejector pump lid at a perfectly reasonable price. He did a great job considering the many difficulties with installing the new lid.

Bogdan was able to come the next morning to help us with our faucet install and a minor deck repair. He identified a valve under the sink that also needed to be replaced and went out to grab the replacement part for us on the spot. He was on time, had great communication and did everything we asked!

Highly recommended pro. I had an emergency sewer blockage on a Friday night and Cory immediately responded and told me what to do. He came out early the next morning and cleared my sewer blockage, and took videos that exactly identified the problem and permanent repair. So relieved as this gave me my sewer function back for the short term, and gave me a long term fix. We were able to agree on the scope of work to permanently fix the problem based on the video evidence... less than one week later my sewer break is permanently repaired and warrantied for five years. Totally happy with this pro, and will use again for any other sewer or plumbing problems. Kudos for promptness, quality of work, thank you Cory, and to Thumbtack for connecting me to this pro.

Shower repair and rebuild. Hugo responded right away to our request. Cleiton arrived on time and offered a reasonable quote. We needed the work done right away since we had guests arriving in 3 days. Cleiton started the job the same day and completed it in just 2 days, right on time. Cleiton was very polite, communicative, and courteous. We think he did a wonderful job. He chose the tile for us and it matched our existing tile perfectly. We would highly recommend Finish Plumbing.

Turns out we did not need to fix anything but, the chain for the flapper was getting caught in the gasket and giving the impression of a broke flush. Valentino explained what to look, charged $60 for the visit and assured that he would come and do any repair work needed the next time without charging another fee for the visit!

I had a Kitchen drain that was clogged. David responded, we agreed on a reasonable offer and he was out the next day to complete the job. He was kind, professional and on-time (even a couple of minutes early). He put down a plastic tarp around the work area and was very clean and cleaned up after himself. I was VERY pleased with his responsiveness and work overall, I would def call him for any future repairs. He hit every mark on what one expects from a service professional and I think you'd make a good choice going with him. I have had to hire a plumber at a previous residence and it cost twice as much for a similar job. Glad I found him!

They arrived at 9 am on the nose to perform a repair on my toilet. The job was completed and the work site cleaned up within 35 minutes. Can't get much better than that. The final cost was somewhat less than their original estimate, which was about what I expected to pay for this type of work. I would use their services again in the future.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How often do you clean a septic tank?

For homeowners with a septic system, it’s important to have a regular septic cleaning schedule. To protect ground and drinking water, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends residential septic cleaning every three years. Many septic system companies state that you can maintain a healthy system with regular septic cleanings every three to five years. In addition to cleaning, a septic tank inspection once a year will uncover problems and can save you thousands in cleanup and repair.

When waste goes into your septic system, it separates into three parts. The solids (sludge) drop to the bottom, wastewater floats in the middle, and a layer of scum rises to the top. Regularly scheduled cleanings prevent the sludge in your septic tank from building up and clogging your tank, leading to an overflow. Pricing for a standard septic cleaning ranges between $200 and $500, with the national average cost at $315. It’s easier, more cost-effective, and better for your home health to keep your septic tank maintained.

Who pumps septic tanks?

Septic system professionals pump septic tanks. Pros in different states will have different licensing and certification regulations. Make sure the company you hire is licensed and certified, is a legitimate business, and has the appropriate insurance. Damage to your septic system could cost thousands of dollars in cleanup and repair, so it’s best to hire a qualified professional from the start.

Using an industrial-strength vacuum hose connected to a tanker truck, the septic tank company will pump out the contents of your tank. First they break up the scum of the top layer, then mix the sludge (on the bottom) into the wastewater for removal. To get all the sludge and scum from the tank, pros may use a tool called a septage spoon that loosens stubborn waste from the sides of the tank. After the tank is hosed down and empty, it is inspected for any cracks or leaks that could lead to trouble in the future. The waste in the truck is then transported and disposed of at a waste management treatment center, a cesspool or an approved dumping site.

When should you clean a septic system?

Experts agree that you should clean your septic system every three to five years for optimal system health and safe water. You should also have it inspected every year to catch minor issues before they become major. If you think you may be overdue for a septic cleaning, here are signs that you should call a pro immediately.

  • You’re at capacity: If the bottom of the scum layer is within six inches of the bottom of the tank’s outlet or if the top of the sludge layer is within 12 inches of the outlet, your tank needs to be pumped, according to the EPA.
  • It stinks: If you can smell wastewater, call a pro right away to clean your tank, pipes and field.
  • Sewage backup: Raw sewage backing up into the pipes in your home is no fun. The pros can pump out your pipes, clean your tanks and clear any clogs, but it will be a complex and messy job.
  • Pooling water: Water collecting around your tank or drain field can be a sign you need to clean your septic system.
  • Super grass: If the grass above your septic system drain field suddenly gets vibrantly green and lush, the septic tank leak could be leaking sewage and fertilizing your lawn in unwanted ways. Call a pro to inspect it right away.

How much is it to clean a septic tank?

Nobody wants their septic tank to back up. Regular septic cleaning and pumping is important to keep your ground and drinking water protected from harmful bacteria. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends septic system cleaning every three years. The national average cost for a septic tank specialist is $315. Costs for septic cleaning may vary based on where you live, how large your septic tank is, and how long it has been since the last cleaning. If it’s been many years since you’ve had your tank cleaned, the process of breaking up and removing the solids may take longer and could cost more. Typical residential septic tanks range in size from 1,000 to 2,500 gallons. The price range for septic cleaning usually averages $200-$500, with varying by tank size. Repairs or replacement parts will also add to your cost. To keep your septic tank in good health between cleanings, only flush approved items such as toilet paper, and don’t rely on your garbage disposal for composting. Items that don’t break down easily (like lemon rinds or feminine hygiene products) can back up the septic system, leading to clogs and overflow. If you smell the unmistakable odor of sewage or can see sewage bubbling up above your drain field, call for a septic cleaning immediately.
