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.

Within an hour of posting the job about my clogged sink, these guys were at my house fixing the problem. They were quick to respond and got the job done, while also providing helpful tips to prevent clogging issues in the future. I'd hire them again in a heart beat!

I found tons of black particles in our hot water. I called Sys-co and they were here in two hours for a free diagnostic assessment. Turns out my flex hoses on the water heater had to be replaced. The plumber came early he next morning, took off his boots when walking on carpet, and replaced the hoses with reliable cooper pipes to solve the problem. In and out in under an hour, including clean up. Quality workmanship, too. Very polite and professional young man. I have a new favorite plumber! Thank you!

Rob and Tom demoed and installed a new kitchen backsplash, did some grout work, corrected an electrical problem, repaired some drywall and, on their own initiative, fixed a couple of other minor things that needed fixing. I really liked both guys. They showed up when they said they would. They approached our projects creatively and professionally. They were direct, helpful and good-humored. The best part is they did a very good job. They are detail-oriented, obviously taking pride in their work (they took pictures of the finished project to show others). And, they were careful to clean up after they finished their work. The review prompt suggests saying what they could have done better. I honestly can't think of anything. The bottom line is that we are very happy with their work, and would recommend them to friends (and use them again ourselves).

WOW!!! Dennis was FANTASTIC! Was able to install security doors on VERY short notice, and even picked them up at Home Depot. He was priced very well, and was extremely professional in getting the job done quickly, and he even cleaned up once he finished. ON TOP OF ALL THAT, I was installing the locks, and having a problem, he jumped right in, finished my job, and never asked for addition money. CLASS ACT all around. 10/10 would recommend 10/10 would use again

We had a two bed house that needed a complete remodel. He painted the walls and the ceilings in about 2 hours. There wasn't a single bare spot throughout the house. Ray did some repairs to the toilet that 4 other contractors couldn't fix. The toilet is completely fixed now. He completed some sub-floor repairs and trimwork on several windows and doors that look GREAT. He's fast and thorough. Really great guy to be around, too. VERY impressed!

The main valve to the sprinkler system was leaking under my house. Marvin arrived quickly the day I called, and fixed it in under an hour. I was very happy about that! I was charged an awful lot for the job, even using their $55 off coupon. It cost far more than I expected for a new valve and labor. My receipt isn't broken down by cost of part and cost of labor, but checking prices for valves, their labor fees are huge.

Timely & relatively clean. Tile cuts/ finishing work detail around corners & door frames could be better.

      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.
