I feel that we owe Kevin a review, not only a good review, but a GREAT review. We called him initially to help with our leaking sink, and later decided to ask him to fix all plumbing problems of our house since we were planning to rent it out. Kevin came twice, not only fixed our leaking sink, but also helped us cleaning black molds (Felt really sorry to have him doing that), re-installing our disposal and sewer pipes, and giving out suggestions how we could fix the garage faucet ourselves. He is prompt, always on time, and very experienced. Most importantly, he REALLY cares about helping you out. Just after his second visit to fix the kitchen faucet, we found our under the sink filtration system leaking and I left him a message. In the following days he called us three times to discuss about possible ways we can try out to fix that, and at the end he offered himself to come and take a look -for FREE! So he came the 3rd time, re-connected our filtration system, waited for half an hour to make sure it was fix, and in the mean time giving my husband general education of plumbing. Wow! Will definitely recommend.

He bid $125 to clear the drain of a light well. Came within the half hour arranged arrival window. Swept clean the roof area. Found after the water initially drained that water backed up again. Determined that there was another clog underground near the sewer connection. Since there was no cleanout at the ground level and drain pipes were corroded (I had patched holes with plumbers putty and duct tape) He replaced the pipes for another $250 plus parts. This involved cutting away some cross beams to pull the pips out. Only minor complaint I noticed the next day that was that he didn't close tight the faucet to get water for testing the drain so there was a slow drip.

We had our sewer pipe replace and the driveway repaved. Ronnie was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, helping us find a paving contractor to complete the project.

I hired Casiano's to replace my kitchen faucet. The faucet was making noise and then water spray got clocked. I had already purchased a replacement faucet that was recommended by my HOA, so I just needed someone to come and replace it. I wasn't able to be present, but my renters liked that setup was friendly and professional. When I arrived to inspect the work, I found everything as good as new. I also appreciated Casiano's flexibility to accept payment via PayPal. This allowed me to not bother my renters with payments, inspect the work afterwards and pay without scheduling further visits.

I hired Oscar to take a video of the sewer line and all pipes connected. The equipment used appeared appropriate and has a sensor to check where the water is running. He ran the video from the sidewalk through the end of the pipe at around 65 feet. This showed some standing water by the foundation.

I contracted Ray about my clogged sewer problem. My toiletes kept backing up. He responded quickly, assessed my plumbing needs and generated a fair market value estimate. Turns out I had tree roots blocking my sewer line. After I did a pricing research for this type of work, I decided to use his service and I am happy to say that my toilets are working again. Thanks Ray!

Erik did a great job snaking an outside sewer line that was tricky to access. What we thought would be a30 minute job ended up taking close to 3 hours of sleuthing and trial/error until he figured it out. Most folks would have given up, frustrated but Erik stuck it out. Really impressive commitment. Came on time, cleaned up, highly-recommended.

We found Salinas home remodeling services most helpful in several ways. Services done for us included electrical wiring, plumbing installation, wall and ceiling painting with texture applications. Also, bathtub, sink and appliance installation. All work was done at high standards. Note: we also experienced generous and positive attitudes from soft spoken professionals, and received on time service. Above all, we have memories of his installation process that are most rewarding. Thank You, Mr. Vyron Salinas and his helper Pablo. Yours truly, Nicholas Adkins

Routine water heater swap - yeah right. What started out as thinking our water heater was broken, turned out to be a long overdue clogged sewer lateral. Worst case scenario. While I'm not that happy about the sewage overflow situation which could have been better mitigated (and we still need to beach the hell out of that room), the solutions and options offered by Ali were professional and spoke of his experience. To unclog the piping, snaking was attempted but failed, hydrojetting was attempted but failed (with a mess of sewage). Finally we got a camera down there to find a wall of something about 50 feet down from the mechanical room to a spot under the sidewalk. Digging 4 feet down, to find actually a pretty good condition clay lateral. Ali's man Valentino (a skilled gentleman), cut the clay and replaced it with a riser in order to install a cleanout for future maintenance. Once done, they hydrojetted for another hour to clear 7-8 months worth of waste. The camera was once again sent through to find that a portion of the clay lateral had shifted and created uneven surfaces including some penetration of tree roots. While most plumbers would probably recommending an immediate replacement, Ali recommended that since it wasn't fully collapsed, we should simply clear out the lateral as routine maintenance rather than spend all the money to replace the pipe. I appreciate his direct communication, no sales pitch, and brief coaching through the process. While I do have 10 yrs of construction experience, and his price was not the cheapest, he certainly delivered on time and without any sense of price gouging.

We did some drainwork on the outside sewer main. Our experience was great. The job was well understood, well scoped and perfectly carried out. We secured a new patch on the drain opening and could not be happier. I was impressed about the solution to make the cover vandalism resistant by installing a hexbolt. Thank you!

Richard is very reliable and responsible. He trenched and replaced 200' of my main sewer line. He also ran gas line from here to there. He could do trench-less too. In and out very quickly. Inspection and all. He has a great crew. They get the job done without fuss. I would hire him again.

I highly recommend Flelix & Flex One Plumbing! Flelix “snaked” and cleared a clog in my 70 foot main sewer line in my Los Altos house for only $185 ( I have a readily accessible clean out on the side of my house). Other plumbers were quoting $220 plus ( one guy, who I found while googling wanted $450!). In addition, Flelix returned to my house on 8/14 and ran a camera through that 67 year old main sewer line of mine FOR FREE! Others had quoted $350 - $450 for such a service. I wanted a diagnosis of that old sewer line ( any offsets, root incursion, irregular line sloping ect. ) in order to plot long term strategies for keeping the line going. Look, it always makes sense to hire or at least get a quote from a guy like Flelix- an extremely experienced guy who has worked for the much more expensive major plumbing outfits for decades and who now is independent ( for two years now). He’s just as good, just as competent, has all the same equipment as the big boys but he charges a lot less BECAUSE HE DOESNT HAVE THE OVERHEAD THAT THEY DO. Plus you can trust an independent guy like Flelix because any nefarious interactions would most certainly be mentioned on review or feedback forums like this one. Do yourself a big favor, at least get a quote from this guy. Not only can he offer competitive & competent solutions but also the peace of mind that comes from a potential long term plumbing affiliation, knowing that you won’t get ripped off by unnecessary and OVERLY EXPENSIVE plumbing work.

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.

What are plumbers and what do they do?

Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

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.
