I have a leak under my kitchen sink and water was running down the pipes when ever we turn on the faucet. He was quick to diagnose the problem and fix the faucet. He also told me that my garbage disposal was leaking. We both went to Home Depot, purchase a new badger , He install it in no time and stop the leak. Very happy with his work.

My backdoor threshold was rotten and needed to be replaced. All other contractors indicated that I would have to order a new door, but Mr. Wilkins said he could replace the damaged wood and reseal it. He quoted a fair price and was able to schedule the job quickly. Due to some of the water damage, my wood floor needed repair as well. I had some extra pieces and he was able to replace the floor too. Work was done in a few hours. I am really happy with the work performed.

Hunter did a great job with our main water line that needed repair. Came out on a Saturday evening and even came back on Sunday morning to finish the job. Problem was fixed and price was definitely affordable to the amount of work required. Would highly recommend!

My property had a main sewer line blockage that was backing up water into my home--Elmer responded quickly to my request and showed up at my property within the hour. Most importantly, he worked to efficiently remove the blockage in my lines (due to tree roots) that occurred a good 70 ft. from my foundation. Elmer was also quick to provide tips on prevention of additional blockages and general sewer line maintenance. I would not hesitate to again contact Elmer for any future plumbing projects. A very nice gentleman.

easy to communicate with; on time and followed directions. Available immediately. Unlike so many handymen and contractors in this region who need to be hand held and want to cut corners, I enjoyed working with Buck and will use his services again.

Kirby Brooks is a great plumber - professional, perfectly on-time, very responsive by phone and did the water heater installation job within the promised timeline. He didn't try to upsell and did the job in a very honest way - its hard to find this now a days. I will hire him again for future jobs at my home. Regarding the quality of the work, I cannot comment right away since he just finished the installation. However, it looks great and there are no apparent leaks. His work comes with a labor warranty as well, just in case if there are any issues.

After having three plumbing contractors come to my house prior to Vince, I started to get frustrated. Vince was very professional and had the best price! He did a phenomenal job installing a brand new bathroom in my basement. Don’t hesitate on booking him. It’s finally nice to find someone reliable in Atlanta. 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾

We have used Dad's Construction for two "around the house" type projects. The first was for a replacement window and the second for a tree removal. In both cases, we were extremely satisfied with the results and the fair price for the services. David takes a lot of pride in his work and ensured we were happy before accepting payment. We definitely will be using them again in the future and a highly recommend for those searching for a "handy-man" for projects around the house.

I've been working with multiple contractors over the past two months to get our office setup; during the process, I've had to babysit a few of them. Brian, was NOT the case!! Brian, with his 25 years of experience, knew exactly what he needed to do and reassured me by thoroughly explaining the situations, showing and confirming my assumptions. Great service, calling him back for any/all plumbing needs!

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.
