Assurance Plumbing performed several major plumbing jobs for us: Replacement of a hot water heater Replacement of a garbage disposal in our kitchen A clogged pipe causing my washing machine backing-up into the laundry room resulting in dry-wall damage The cutting and refitting of a stripped main on/off value in the house Assurance service was outstanding, not only was the work done timely and above my expectations, they also put things in place to prevent future problems. When it was discovered that the washing machine problem was due to a clog pipe Assurance Plumbing did more then unclog the pipe. Assurance removed the pipe and installed a new pipe, to my surprise they then added a access point that could be used in the event of a future clog (the average company would have never taken the time to do). After the problem was corrected with my washing machine Assurance Plumbing advised that they had a drywaller they would scheduled to repair the drywall due to the water damage. Since this time I have informed American Home Shield that the only company we would allow to due any of our plumbing cover or no-covered is Assurance Plumbing.

After a water heater disaster and already paying a well known plumbing company 300 dollars to not repair our water heater, my husband and I were not happy about paying another plumber with high rates for little work. We finally decided to give it another try. He responded quickly and was VERY reasonably priced in comparison to some abnoxious quotes we received. He showed up quickly and got the job done in a very timely manner. Will definitely keep his business card handy!

I needed some furniture repair and touch-up exterior painting. Time was of the essence. Greg and Mike were incredibly responsive, dropping everything and racing across the state to jump right in. They were professional and very courteous.

Another plumber had replaced a supple line to our dishwasher and we developed a leak that we didn’t know about under the cabinet. Brandon found the leak and repaired it. He also has replaced our faucets and shower head and put in a new kitchen sink. You can count on his work being quality work, great value and professional!

Issac has been to my house several times: outside hose bib repair, dishwasher installation, drywall repair, ceiling fan installation and also replumbed our bathtub. Everytime he’s been prompt, professional and an overall great, knowledgeable guy. I intend to have him do several more projects in the near future!

Having to sell my house due to divorce, there were repairs that were needed. The biggest of all was painting the house. I hired Josh as he is a long time friend. The work he did was outstanding! Never screwed around, found more work that needed done, took care of it immediately. Also jumped right in and help me get the house ready to pass inspection. Very glad I called him first!

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.
