I needed to have a pipe repair inspected and an outside water bib repaired. I asked Jason to replace the pipe that was repaired, but he told me there was no need to replace the pipe. I appreciate his honesty because replacing the pipe as requested would have doubled the amount I paid for the water bib repair. Jason was always prompt and courteous with his communication. I will definitely be doing business with Jason in the future.

Very pleased with Rashad's service. Good communications before he came to our house. Spent quality time with me using his camera to personally show me the problems in my 70' septic tank piping. Gave me temporary and affordable solutions I can try for 3-6 months and also gave me details and pricing for a longer-term permanent fix. Very pleased with his professionalism, personal care, positive attitude, and affordable pricing. We plan to use him in the future, since we are going to go with his short-term suggestions for several months and see how things work out. If we can't manage the problem with our piping, we will consider the more expensive solution in the next 6-12 months.

Communicated the problem clearly. Offered multiple options to repair the old valve versus updating to a newer valve and completed the job the same day. Thank you for fixing my Mom’s home and treating her well! If you’re looking for a good plumber here you go!

I needed Mike to repair some water damage to exterior cabinet doors. Quality, excellent. Very much on time, Mike showed up on time and returned on time. It was nice that he takes cabinet doors to his work shop, and not constantly kneeling down to repair problem. As all other contractors wanted to do. I believe therefore the quality of workmanship is much better. Time wise, about a week, but this was discussed in advance. Mike had doors repaired and in back in place by deadline. All went well. Would, I use Mike again? Absolutely!

Franko is very kind and reasonable. He not only fixed our sprinkler system, but installed two baby gates and blinds. When he was out getting the relevant part for the irrigation system, he brought back batteries we needed for my son's toy. He has the best prices out there and is very handy. Will definitely use again.

    Lamont Pearson of Water Containment Associates showed up at our home on a Sunday evening, diagnosed the problem with our tankless water system and had everything repaired/installed less than 24 hours later. Words that come to mind to describe Mr. Pearson are: honest, reliable, knowledgeable and considerate. He offered a few options, gave his recommendations and ultimately allowed my husband and I to decide what would be best for us. Mr. Pearson deserves your business. He is the real-deal and I will call on him for all future plumbing needs as well as recommend him to anyone in need of plumbing service.

    Lance was very customer-service oriented in repairing/rebuilding my water feature. He spent many hours making sure all aspects of the water intake/output was solid and made sure that my needs were met at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend him for this type of 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.

    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.
