I wanted someone out ASAP after another plumber had stood me up and, late that evening, Walter shifted things around to fit me in with one of his techs, Francesco, the next day. I had a laundry list of items that he looked at and we came up with a plan. Francesco and crew came back later and spent an entire Saturday installing our new hybrid water heater, a new toilet, three new faucets, and replacing a bunch of old piping and valves. I'm really enjoying the results!!

I was worried that perhaps I may have damaged a sump pump when trying to clean it, and I sent a request in through Thumbtack. I heard from Norlan a couple hours later, and as he was in the neighborhood, he stopped by for a quick look. He checked the sump pump and verified that there was no problem with it and that it did not require work. He did not charge me for this visit/appraisal. Norlan strikes me as a knowledgeable and honest person, I will certainly turn to him when I have a plumbing issue in the future.

Plain and simple, Tony does good work. His attention to detail and craftsmanship is second to none. He installed a difficult herring bone backsplash for us with ease. Individual glass tiles aren’t easy to cut but it was no problem for him. He also completely opened up a closet for us and installed a custom built in bench seats and cubby hole storage system. He also painted one of our rooms with a nice stripe pattern. He is very nice and his prices are great. There isn’t a job he can’t perform.

My basement flooded as a result of a broken sump pump during a torrential rain storm. Unlimited Resources responded in less than 2 hours of contacting them. Due to the flood I also had some electrical issues which needed attention quick. They provided staff with the appropriate certifications and credentials along with excellent professionalism and expertise. In the following days they made sure that my basement was dried out and did mold remediation. Grateful for having to deal with a good company under such distress.

Let me start by saying that I'm not one to typically call for help. I'm more of a do-it-yourself type of homeowner. But when it comes to systems as complex at HVAC, I simply could not find time, and did not have the experience necessary to fix my A/C unit in the middle of a hot week. That is when Robert and Friends quite literally came to my rescue. Robert was able to quickly and efficiently diagnose my HVAC systems issue and then provide me options to get my home cooled again. He holds himself with upmost confidence and professionalism which swayed my decision to use Robert and Friends Heating and Cooling LLC. Although I had initially searched around and tested my options with other HVAC repair services, I found that the punctuality of Robert and Friends as well as the professionalism and plethora of knowledge led me to stick with them. They were very reasonable with pricing and were eager to get my house cooled ASAP. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in my time without A/C. Thank you Robert and Friends!

Mr. Brownlee did an excellent job installing a commercial hot water heater. My system was old and appeared to require additional elec & water supply work because of tenants' "adjustments". He had a professional come to check the elec input & didn't charge me for that service. Plus the total price for heater and install was very fair. Mr. Brownlee is pleasant and easy to deal with. I plan to use Brownlee Plumbing in the future.

Tony was so prompt in answering my online request. He called right away and was out to my house in an hour. He solved the mystery of where the water in the kitchen ceiling was coming from - the attic! Not only did he fix the clogged condensate pipe from my AC unit, he created a back up system so the overflow pan will not flood my attic again. I'm very grateful for his expertise, his ingenuity and his response to a very urgent request. I will call Tony again when I have a plumbing problem.

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.
