Bruce was very professional and knowledgeable on what he was doing. His pricing was reasonable. We thought it was minor what we were doing to the two bathroom sinks but we found out from Bruce that it was a major problem. The bathrooms were clogged but we he had to rederect the sewer line. What we loved about him the most was that he was very honest.... he even gave us the option to call three more plumbers to give us an estimate but we decided to go with him. He also educated us on how the pipes work and sat down with us to explain the problem. His work is clean he doesn't leave a mess. I would give him 10 stars but their is no option to. We will definitely contact him for any future issues. Thank you Bruce God bless you we will be in touch. From Henriquez/Jimenez Family

Manny provided a quick and reasonable quote and after reading the reviews on Thumbtack, I felt he was the best choice for the job. I spoke with him over the telephone and the following morning he and his crew were at my door ready to repair my sewer line. Their work is top notch and was completed quickly. Manny is honest and very reliable and I highly recommend him for all of your plumbing needs.

Highly recommend Juan for any plumbing projects. His work is very professional. He is easy to communicate with and a good guy to chat with. He quickly repiped a couple pipes and capped another. He had all of the parts in his van which made the whole appointment quick and painless. He left the job site cleaner than when he showed up..didn't leave a message like some contractors tend to do

Domingo from All In One came right out for what I thought was a clogged exterior drainage pipe. He tried to snake the pipe but it was completely blocked, possible from roots of a large tree that had grown right up next to the drain. Domingo could not clear the line so did not charge me for the visit. Great customer service. He provided a detailed written quote to trench and run a new line. All In One was very courteous and polite. I would call them again.

We were originally quoted $2,000 to replace a water heater. Of course I knew this was exorbitant and in no way where we going to pay this. At this point, I came across Allan. Allan went above and beyond what I would have expected. He picked up, paid for, and delivered the water heater to us! Of course I reimbursed him after the job was completed. Who does that? At any rate, we communicatedand flawlessly though text during the initial transaction. He also did it the same day that our water heater went out which was on a Saturday! Needless to say-and by all the reviews he has-Allan and his team are a breath of fresh air among the the somewhat flaky world of contractors.

Contacted Elite contractors for an air conditioning repair. Our air-conditioning started leaking a couple days ago because of the crazy heat. Called them Monday, and they were able to send out a tech same day in the evening but worked better with my schedule for the following day. They came promptly at 10 am as promised. Profession, and polite. He fixed the clogged drain pipe and replaced the vent filter ( something I didn’t know needed maintained regularly. Can’t believe I was breathing that!!! ) great service. Will definitely be using them again.

Accurate Service Co responded immediately to my clogged drain problem in a branch sewer line. They arrived within three hours, provided a professional service, and resolved the issue during the first visit for the price initially quoted. I was so please with their service I asked Norman for additional business cards to pass on to my friends and business colleagues. When my problem arose I checked out Mike Diamond "the smell good plumber" and decided not to use them when I notice a Yelp rating of 1.5 out of 5. I very pleased I found Norman at Accurate Service Co.

I have to echo the other 5 star reviews. Platinum removed and replaced rusted broken sewer pipes under my house with all new horizontal piping. A hard and dirty job but their work was truly outstanding. Then they cleaned outside drains which were clogged with roots which had been growing for years. Again, not an easy job but they kept at it until it was done. Joel, Rafael and crew were persistent and efficient. And left my house and outside areas clean. Wouldn't know they were here. Power washed and swept all outside spaces & didn't leave any debris behind. And they showed up when they said they would. Compared to the other plumbers I've had work on my house since I inherited it last year they were the best. Highly recommended!

As a contractor I'm particular about other contractors. I've also had a number of plumbers out to the house and have never called the same one back twice. Anthony will be the first I will call back. Super nice guy, prompt, and easy to contact. The price was also equal to or better than the other plumbers I've called. He got to the house and had the drain unclogged in no time. This is after I used my own snake, then went out and rented a 50' electric snake from Home Depot, spent hours on the drain, and finally gave up and called Anthony. I would highly recommend him for your drainage, hot water heater, most of your plumbing needs.

Isidoro is a trust worthy person. Very hard to find a professional like this. He used the hydrojet and camera for a sewer line, yet the result is just satisfactory. Later that night, Isi told me it was his equipment under-performing. Isi fixed the hydrojet, and came back the following day to complete the job to the best of his ability. This is an indication of an honest person. I will definitely call Isi for the next job. Furthermore, his rate is very competitive.

After many years, my garbage disposal stopped working. I did an online search and found Thumbtack for the first time. I thought this service was just fantastic! I put in my request and immediately received two quotes. I was contacted by the owner of Pro Appliance Installers, Jesse. After a brief discussion, Jesse sent out two local contractors, Theo and Tech, to install my new garbage disposal. These guys were amazing! They were extremely efficient, thorough, and thoughtful of explaining the process to me. They took their time to make sure everything was done correctly and done right. I would highly recommend them for any job you need completed.

What an incredibly lucky find. My main sewer line needed replacing and not only did Jesus do an amazing job, his attitude and the attitude of his coworkers was absolutely outstanding. What a pleasure it was working with him. I'll be sure that this guy is my go to plumber and the one I'll be recommending to friends and family. Side note, I got an estimate from 6 different plumbers. His was the best rate!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
