I needed to have fixtures replaced in my tub/shower and bathroom sink. I hired Nick because of his estimate and the positive reviews I read on this site. I concur with all the 5 stars ratings this gentleman has received and would recommend him to all my friends and family who need plumbing work done! He is very competent, did an excellent job and went beyond what we discussed and cleaned out the drain that had been giving me problems, without changing the price!!! He's a gem!!!

We recently selected Baiza for our paver sealing project. Marvin and his crew have done a great job to meet our tight timeline with great quality of work and competitive price. They cleaned the front driveway and backyard, installed sand and sealer and finished the cleaning. The weather was not cooperative with us but Marvin tried his best to handle the impact of the weather on the project and gave us the best result. Marvin is very detail oriented and he found there were two sharp pieces of stone on the retaining walls at our backyard left by the previous contractor. He mentioned it to us and showed to us it is not safe to the kids and he got rid of those sharp pieces for us. His true customer oriented service is excellent and we are very satisfied with his work and would like to recommend his company to our friends.

The Plumber was awesome, flexible and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this business "Direct Drain Cleaning and Plumbing" for any small or large jobs. We needed pipes and stacks replaced. They did a great job. Replaced the drywall and finished the walls. No leaks after and the walls look awesome. They also give a guarantee. We use them every time for small and/or large jobs and will not consider another company to meet our needs. Thanks James and staff for all you do.

They did a great job fixing my sub floors! No complaints about the quality at all. The gentleman even broomed and vacuumed when he was done. He did have to saw the plywood to take it apart and out of the house. I asked if I should cover my furniture and couch with a sheet to avoid cleaning up sawdust and he said no it's ok. But unfortunately saw dust did get on all that so I did clean up when he left. Maybe he didn't understand my question not sure. But definitely worth the quality and super nice and pleasant people and I will definitely use them again in the future!

I'm renovating a home with significant repairs required, including all new septic, well and electrical. Olde Port managed all the permitting and solicited competitive bids from local contractors. They also provided unsolicited updates of progress, and confirm delivery of items I ordered per my allowances.

Interconnect wired my house for Cat6, creating 6 total ports in 3 rooms of our house. Their work was impeccable with clean, well-labeled ports throughout the house. They worked efficiently and the entire process was seamless and professional from start-to-finish. I highly recommend Interconnect for any residential networking!

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.
