I had a really bad back up in by basement bathroom and of course began panicking. Jason contacted me and was at my house just a few hours later and got to work right away. From the second I met him outside, I felt like everything would be ok. From his calm demeanor, and knowledgeable questions I knew I was in the right hands. Jason worked for HOURS trying to unclog the persistent and stubborn clog but was only able to clear it up slightly all due to an idiot contractor I hired in the past. After more hours of working his butt off he kindly suggested I call a sewer specialist as this was too much for a plumber. I asked him how much I owed him and although I don't recall if he said "nothing" or half of the quoted, I gave him the full amount of his original quote because I KNOW he did his best. I will not be calling ANYONE else for future plumbing projects in my house

I used this company twice. The first job they replaced main sewer line and the second job they repaired my boiler. They do great work and clean up after themselves. Their prices are fair and they are very reliable! I will definitely recommend them to others.

I hired Skilled Service, Repair & Installation a few weeks ago, right before the New Year, and it was a very pleasant experience, from the introductory email, to the phone/text conversations, to the finalization of the job. One thing I really like about Joseph is, that he is really does seem like an honest business man. He must've mentioned to me two or three times not to ever feel shy about asking any questions at all and voicing my own opinion. As a homeowner, and not a professional in the construction business, it is very intimidating at times hiring contractors and letting them and their sub-contractors in the home while having to perform family-hood duties. I mean the household chores, the kids and their homework and their chores, etc, etc. I run a very busy household, Joseph's head had to be spinning, trying to stay focused on the work, hearing the noise and comotion. Who knows what he must've thought of my homelife, LOL, but like I said above, him and his helper were very pleasant and professional. They both have children themselves, and they both said it was nothing new to them. Even when Joseph came by for the estimate, my son and daughter would not leave my side, not even five minutes into estimate he had my kids giggling and smiling, I thought that was very sweet of him. So between the paint job and the electrical installation for the master bedroom and kids' room, the rooms came out absolutely wonderful. The accent walls in each room bounce the rest of the room right out at you. The lighting was beautifly done and there are more outlets and they are so easy to get to now, yay!!

Ackthba did a great job replacing our toilet seat, which we thought was a very simple task but 2 contractors prior to Ackthba were not able to handle the task. Ackthba is very resourceful and professional and I will definitely call on him in the future.

Hired Walter to check out a clogged toilet drain. Turned out it was a broken main sewer line which he was also able to repair. I liked how he is very systematic in his approach to identify the problem and his philosophy to only fix what is broken. Also explains and communicates well and works with you. Since he can do a lot of very different tasks, I am sure I will hire him in the future and can also recommend him to everybody.

Dexter is a great contractor. He is by far the best contractor I had. He was fair in pricing, and very pleasant to work with. I hired Dexter as a contractor to repair electrical problems I was having in and around my house. Dexter provided and displayed the professional knowledge to me and my mother to allow us to make the best possible decisions. Dexter took on and completed projects that previous contractors started and did not finish. He even troubleshooted the entire project and did the necessary work that the previous contractors didn't want to do. This goes to show that he can be counted on to give 110 percent under all circumstances whether he began the project or he is picking up in the middle from which someone did not finish the project. Basically he does things the correct way--he does not "cut-corners." Regardless of the situation, Dexter will do everything possible to make sure that his performance is correct and done right. Dexter is a great electrician. You should definitely hire him as a contractor.

I highly recommend Celtic Piping and Heating. Edward got back to me quickly with an online quote while many other plumbers or contractors refuse to provide even a ballpark estimate without seeing the project. (Translation: it's harder to refuse when someone is standing in your apartment ready to work even if the price is outrageous!) Edward called me back within 30 minutes to arrange for a time and arrived promptly... on a Saturday, no less! I had failed to mention that I needed a drain installed in addition to two faucets and that wasn't a problem for him. He clearly knows what he is doing and my kitchen and bathroom now have a much more updated look thanks to his efforts. Edward is a true professional and he clearly takes pride in what he does. He left me with his card in case there were any problems as he guarantees his work. I don't think that I'll be needing it... until I have another project, that is! Terrific!

I cannot run out of positive things to say about my experience with WIlliam. I hired him to install new fixtures in a vintage porcelain sink. There were a number of unexpected issues combining the elements that were not designed for each other, and WIlliam diligently and cleverly found a solution for every problem. He made several trips to the hardware store nearby to find creative solutions to each problem and completed the work in remarkable time given all the surprise issues. He checked several times to make sure there were no leaks afterwards and even called the next day to check that everything was working fine. That really impressed me. I can only imagine that he'd finish a regular job in no time. His communication was thorough and frequent and he left no mess behind. He is a friendly, congenial person and a very good, hard worker. I will gladly call William again for any plumbing project and will give his information to the rest of my building and my friends should they ever need a plumber. It's hard to find people who take such pride in doing a good job. William deserves to be very proud of the very good work that he does.

Florooter Sewer did an excellent job. Herbert and his crew were professional. We had several items in this project. Snack 2 hair clogged sinks. Replace the trap on a kitchen sink, connect a gas stove and replace the faulty leaking shower body with a pressure shower body. One the shower, we didn't have extra tile. Herbert looked at the tile design, went to Home Depot and get a complimenting tile, brought it back to ask if this was ok. It was. He cleaned up after he finished. When installing the stove, the floor was slightly damaged, nothing major. He repair it. Have another job pending and I will definitely give Florooter a call.

My heat was not working properly. I had called 5 contractors before contacting Matt and all said my job was not important enough to squeeze me in anytime soon. Matt drove over an hour and a half getting to my house at 9:30PM to complete this job. I will certainly be hiring him again. Very professional and very knowledgeable! Thank you!

Mr Roman has been one of the best contractors I've found on this app! After going through three plumbers he finally diagnosed the problem and completely fixed it so that the sewer ejector system is working and no more flooding problems. He did the work in a day, repaired any holes in the Sheetrock so that it looks brand new and cleaned up after his work. I hired him to solve some other problems that other plumbers had given up on and he tackled the jobs. I will consider him my go to call whenever I need help on my house from now on!

The job could not have gone more perfect. My contractor cancelled last minute for a job that needed to be done before Christmas as it was a gift. I hired Al over the phone as I was desperate and he came over right away. I was extremely nervous and worried he may try and over charge due to the circumstances and my need for immediate assistance. He had no reviews for me to read and I have had a few bad experiences with contractors in the past. Al was polite, clean, neat and treated my home as if it was his own sweeping and vacuuming as he went along. I was only planning on having him do the hard labor and I was going to finish the rest on my own. Al was a very pleasant find and I will be referring him to anyone I know who needs a contractor. He did not over charge and went above and beyond to help finish the entire job for me.

Rick and his guys did a total gut kitchen reno for me. Kitchen came out amazing and exactly for the price we agreed to in the beginning (which was much cheaper than a lot of the other Montclair contractors). His guys were always on time, curteous and very hard working. Rick was also very easy to work with and I highly recommend!! I’ll definitely use him on other projects in the future.

The sewer pipe that leads to my toilet started to leak a few months ago and I decided to call Cajeton after hearing about him from friends who said he does great work. So after speaking to him and telling him that I feared the pipe is going to break, due to a crack I discovered on the pipe. Cajeton came to my house immediately and assessed the problem. He was already prepared with equipment he needed to fix the pipe. After an hour or so my pipe was leaking no more! I must say I was impressed at how diligently And quickly he worked. Since fixing my pipe it has not leaked again. I would definitely use Cajeton for for any other plumbing issues that may come up again.

One of the nice things (and there are many!) about dealing with Nationwide Plumbing Sewer & Drain Piping and Heating, is that from your original phone call, to installation, repair or maintenance, you are working with Krista, Plumber and Heating Expert. Other places will send "whomever" they have available "whenever" they want to. You don't want that situation for your precious home. Krista will skillfully advise you, give you options, and send the right person to do the repair or installation. Honest professionals with excellent integrity. Came by to look into a shower plumbing issue I was having on short notice. Arrived early and worked very efficiently. Communication was excellent throughout. Would highly recommend.

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.
