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!

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.

Gino did an excellent job, he was professional and friendly and made sure I was satisfied with the results. I was impressed enough to schedule a follow-up job next week to do a preventative main sewer rodding.

I cannot describe how excellent our experience was with PK Plumbing & Sewer for installing a water heater. Do not hesitate to hire them. Hard working and a very reasonable price. They are now our go to for any plumbing needs. You'll feel lucky you found them too. I will be recommending them to any friends and family in the area.

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.

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. :)

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

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.

Overall a very good experience. We discovered we had no hot water on a Wednesday evening around 7 PM. Adam responded promptly and was at our house by 9 AM the next morning! He ultimately determined we needed a new water heating system and thoroughly explained various options. (We are not the original homeowners). Ultimately we decided to replace our two tank system with one slightly larger tank. We had hot water by Friday afternoon and the system continues to work fine! Adam left the work area very clean and disposed of the two water heaters plus the box/packing for the new water heater. Very much appreciated!! There was an extended period mid-job when Adam was not contactable. He had left to acquire the new tank and parts, stating he would be back within 2-3 hours. After 5-6 hours with no contact, we became concerned for his well-being. We could not reach him, texts went unanswered, and calls went right to voicemail. We discussed this with him in person when he returned and he was very receptive to this feedback. We would definitely recommend Adam and not hesitate to contact him for other home maintenance needs, should these arise.

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.

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.

    Replace water heater, replace laundry tub faucet and repair leaking copper elbow. All three projects were quoted individually in understandable detail. The quotes were fair and I accepted all three immediately. The work was able to be completed in th same day. I was pleased with the quality of the job and the clean up afterwards.

        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.
