Kitchen sinks clogged on New Year's Eve. Olney Sewer and Drain came out within 2 hours of my call, snaked 60 feet of my sewer lines at a very reasonable charge. Family run business, very nice people, will use again any time I need this type of service.

I don't often need electrical and installation done on my home, but Roman with Roman Remodeling was fantastic. My wife and I had some bad experiences with other contractors but Roman made everything go smoothly. With his skills, experience, and knowledge, we were able to get our fan installation with no problem. This guy knows his stuff and he's incredibly professional and gets the job done all while being very personable. Great attitude, ability, and service.

Eric and a gentleman that assisted him did a great job. They were in and out in less than an hour. My only concern was the difference in the quote and the actual price. While here he explained the 79.00 listed as the quote was the actual service fee and the total cost included a 1year warranty plus parts and labor. Most times dealing with Thumbtack, the price quoted is the actual price with the exception of when contractors come out to provide estimates. Other than that, he’s a nice guy and he did a great job.

Had them try and repair plaster, on walls with swirls, that a different contractor had messed up. Didn't repair with plaster, but I believe made the best with what they had to work with.

Randy was a pleasure to work with. His price was competitive and the quality of his work was outstanding. Randy was punctual, thorough and helpful with respect to educating us on the ceramic floor tiling work he performed. We discovered, in talking with Randy, that he is a handyman, and we fully intend to give him a call with any of our future needs. Randy is a very personable, trustworthy contractor, something I often cannot say about others with whom I've interacted. He is a pleasure to talk with throughout the job, and he genuinely is not trying to overcharge you. He offers a reasonable and competitive price, and he follows it up with excellent work. I think anyone would find him to be the type of contractor with whom you'd always want to work.

I do a large volume of renovations and I have used Aqua Vitae plumbing for several years. I have employed them on everything from large scale commercial projects to the smallest of residential plumbing repairs. I have always been impressed with their work and even hired them to make repairs on my own home. Ken and his staff have always been professional, cost effective and their customer service is fantastic. I don't hesitate to recommend Ken to family members, neighbors or professional colleagues.

I want to recommend Yury and Yelena Pinigin from The Handy Man for their responsiveness and for going the extra mile. There was a leak in the living room of my house in St. Louis. I live in Texas and had been waiting for a roofing contractor to call me back (not a Thumbtack person). I pulled the Handy Man phone number from a previous project by accident. While this is not in their area, they went and looked at my property THAT DAY to check to see if it was the roof or the gutter or something else. They advised me FOR FREE, pretty much knowing it was not going to be work they would do since Yury is not a roofer. I want to thank Yelena for keeping in contact. Having contractors call me back and show up when they say they will has been a challenge. The folks at the Handy Man are exceptional. Thank you, Yury and Yelena!

    Donald is excellent - he is first of all RESPONSIVE and AVAILABLE! For this sort of business, with backed-up sewers and the like, that is of the utmost importance. I can call or text him and know that he will take care of business. He is polite with tenants and, of course, knowledgeable and skillful at his job. I have used him countless times with my own home and on rental properties, and am always satisfied.

    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.
