I found ISA to be one of those rare businesses where you actually receive what you pay for. Their jobs were to tile two bath rooms and a family room, hang 10 interior doors, install extensive back splash and replace two bathroom vanities. One rare quality we found with ISA is their punctuality. A customer will find appointments kept and punctuality maintained ... a trait definitely not belonging to a good number of contractors today. We found Salvo and Kemmel (spelling) personal and friendly to be with during the arduous turmoil of home remodeling. Perhaps the best accolade a customer can provide to any business is "yes, I would hire them again"!

Tim & his apprentice came & installed two new faucets for me. They did a great job at a fair price, and he was also a pleasure to talk to.. a real nice guy, recommended for any plumbing job. He also has several other subcontractors that can do any job as well. I will definitely call back for a few other larger jobs.

All work was completed on time and on budget. Very high quality work. Had absolutely no objection when I added on a few additional smaller projects as well. Had him repaint my kitchen, master bath, guest bath, guest bedroom and first floor power room. All work looks simply amazing! Would definitely hire him again in the future! Sourced through Thumbtack. For being my first experience using Thumbtack, I was definitely satisfied with its role in linking homeowners with contractors.

Bradley was able to pinpoint location of a leak in a vent that was causing sewer odors in an apartment that 3 other plumbers weren't able to find. He was also able to fix the leak with some creative work to keep damage to the floor at a minimum. Very reasonable price too. Bradley's definitely my new plumber.

I needed help installing legs on a couch. I had ordered a couch from Wayfair that came without predrilled holes for the leg assembly. The contractor that Wayfair referred me to kept delaying, so I turned to Doyle for assistance. Within 24 hours of first contact, the legs were installed on my couch. Doyle was very responsive, incredibly professional, and completed the fix in no time at all. He is very friendly and took the time to explain to me how I could do similar fixes myself in the future. I give him my highest possible recommendation.

On a Saturday night, Sunday morning, and Monday morning, the team from Plugged Pipes, LLC, were available to assist in my drainage issues. Evidently, flushable wipes are NOT TO BE FLUSHED down any toilet drain...EVER! When the team left Saturday night, they returned bright and early on Sunday to get the clogs out of the main sewer line with a hydro jetter. On Monday they came to assist with other line blockages and clogs and gave me great advice to prevent future clogs. Very kind, professional, and humorous through all of the events and debacles. Would recommend to anyone, especially for these old houses with old pipes!

David & his team at JDM did a phenomenal job remodeling our bathroom on a budget. They gutted the original builders bathroom where there had been a leak in the shower behind the tile. They installed all new fixtures, including new vanity, new exhaust fan, new toilet, new sink/top, new vanity light, primed and color change the walls and ceiling. The tile work is FaNtAsTiC with custom niche in the shower. Their design suggestions regarding the tile, tile trim, and appointments helped us receive a much nicer bathroom than ANY of the other contractors we spoke to would have done for the budget... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Wise Plumbing and Sewer are the best! We called them over for a quote, and as they arrived the pipe burst. Paul and his team jumped right into action with a great price. His team worked hard and long hours to get the problem fixed. What could have been days without water and more issues turned into 1 day without water and minimal issues. I highly recommend Wise Plumbing. I would hire them again in a flash. Thank you Wise Plumbing for all you did for us.

Excellent Service!! I was very satisfied with the work they performed. I had issue with my kids toilet not flushing. I had called 2 guys (handyman) before and wasted my money. Finally, I called the Do Right Rooter and they fixed the issue in first time at very reasonable price. I would highly recommend the Do Right Rooter Plumbing & Sewer Experts. Do not waste your money calling non experienced handyman.. call only Do Right Rooter plumbing & Sewer Experts. Thanks Shuja Munaver

Mike was very responsive and knowledgeable in helping me out with my water leak situation. I thought it was my toilet leaking, but it turned out to be water from my shower head that was splashing out of the tub and onto the floor leaking to my bathroom downstairs. In the end no work was needed, but i appreciate his honesty and recommendations. Other people would have tried to take advantage of me, but he didn’t. Hopefully I don’t have any major plumbing issues in the future, but if I do. I know I’m calling Mike!

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.
