I hired Tim for two projects the same day. He did a camera inspection of sewer lines in a 17,500 sq ft retail space I’m about to take possession of. 👍 He also rodded the sewer line at my girlfriends house and then followed up with a camera inspection. Great work, I highly recommend!

These guys are amazing, they are definitely going to be my go to plumbers for anything else I need done at my house! Not only did they get my sewer and drains rodded out as discussed but they helped fix a few other plumbing issues they really didn’t have to if they just wanted to get their job done and go home but instead they went the extra mile. Love working with people like this!

The experience started with Brady being right on time, and just got better from there. He knew exactly what had to be done, completed the repairs in a timely manner, and at a very fair price. He doesn't change you $100 just to walk in your front door, like many bigger companies do. And he did both plumbing and electrical repairs while he was here. He will be my "go to" guy for all my future plumbing and electrical needs.

We needed to rod our sewer line in the basement. Gino responded back to our Thumbtack request. He did a great job communicating with me and was available right away. The work quality was excellent. I would hire him again for future work.

Great experience, professional, on time and very responsive. After the first repair was unsuccessful, he even offered to come out and try out some other repairs to ensure the job was done correctly. Very thorough and made sure I knew exactly what was happening and what repairs he planned on doing. Would definitely hire again!

Dan was able to fit us into his very full schedule on short time notice. He was quite professional and the sewer work he did seems to be working just fine (you don't really know for a few days or when the next rain/melt comes around). My only complaint would be that he left the work area quite messy and did cause some damage to property in the basement. He completely owned up to it and we took a bit off of his price. That is the only thing stopping me from giving a 5-star experience.

These plumbers where fast to do a sewer repair because I could not use my toilet or my main line so the plumber did the excavation outside in front to put a clean out station for a access point, and then Mark ford said I have to do Maintenance every 2yrs to rod my line with a 6inch cutter. The BEST PLUMBERS!!!!! Thanks you mark ford..

I googled around this morning to see if I could find an estimate for rodding my basement sewer pipe and I stumbled across Thumbtack. I filled out the form, did some work for a while, went to get some coffee, came back, and had a couple replies. Bob's was the one I went with; the interface told me he was available at 4:30 but Bob said nope he could do 2pm though -- and he was at my house with his guys and his equipment within 15 minutes. He was so helpful, explaining what had happened, what the larger issue was, what I should look for in terms of "when it goes sideways again," how often I should expect to deal with this, and what my big next steps would be re: a permanent fix. And they fixed my problem and were super professional and nice, and nobody talked down to me EVER (this is a huuuuuuge plus if you are a female dealing with folks in this industry, in my not-too-limited experience), and guess what: my coffee was still hot as he and his team drove off. Absolutely great guys - will totally go to them again. :)

I couldn't have asked for a better plumber. With 10 years of experience, he was able to repair my toilet in less than 2 hrs at a very fair price. In addition, he mentioned that his grandmother had the exact same same toilet (which was a rare type of Kohler), so he knew exactly what needed to be done. I'm selling my house this summer and he was a godsend. My very highest recommendation. In fact, give him an 11! Hire this company!

I had George install a new vanity/sink/faucet, toilet and a kitchen drain. All looks great and works perfectly. After I saw his work I had him replaced a sewer drain that needed a new seal and a clean out pipe. I will definitely use him again and recommend him. He is very professional and his prices are reasonable.

I have been a regular customer for a couple of years and I've always been happy with their work. They rodded out my main sewer line, changed my toilet and sink in the bathroom. They also installed my kitchen sink. Very knowledgeable and polite staff. I would highly recommend them.

The team at B&B did an incredible job repairing a main water valve at our building. From first contact to coming out to inspect the issue and returning the next morning to resolve, Bill was incredibly polite, professional and completed the fix very quickly. He even fixed a plugged shower head in one of our units at no additional charge. Because of his fast work he prevented a major water event that would have cost thousands to remedy. I would highly recommend Bill and B&B and will use them for my future plumbing needs.

Todd was very honest and didn't up sell. He was efficient at both rodding and at using the camera in the line. He did not leave until the job was done both to my satisfaction and his. A true professional with varied experience beyond his years. Would defiantly use Todd again, for rodding and any other plumbing job I had in the future

I called Chicago Sewer Experts to unclog my sewer line. Joseph and Dave came out in a timely manner and in a short time the problem was fixed! They explained the process as they were doing it and kept me informed the entire time. They even cleaned up after themselves! They were personable and trustworthy and they will definitely be my go to plumbing/sewer company in the future. I highly recommend them.

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.
