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

Jerome helped me out with a clients home project while my contractor was on vacation and I couldn't have been more pleased. I also recommended him to help my friend with a project. Looking forward to working with him on future projects.

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.

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.

Being unable to use the kitchen sink can be a nightmare and waiting for it to get fixed can be even worst. Getting same day service and having the problem fixed so quickly is definitely a reason I will continue to use BlueKrait Drain & Sewer for all my plumbing needs. The price is reasonable and Rob was such a pleasure to work with very respectful with your time and I would recommend them for all plumbing needs.

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!

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!

He is thorough in until clogging my toilet from the main sewer line and show the results, and preventative measure as he does it. Highly recommended, and will hire him in any future plumbing work and advice.

Nick showed up in my place on scheduled time. He made an excellent job, he entered and cleaned the pipe from 3 different spots to make sure the main sewer pipe is clean and the job is well done. I'd like to thank him for what he's done. After the job was done he clean up around and left my place in excellent condition.

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.

Based on what I am going to say - one might think I am a friend of the contractor (Shawn) - let me assure you that I did not know Shawn before meeting him through Thumbtack asking him to come to my home to give me an estimate on finishing my basement. I have had horrible experiences with contractors in the past and sadly I expected this project to be no different. Much to my SHOCK it was an entirely different experience working with Shawn. For starters, I received 6 quotes on finishing my basement and Shawn had one of the lowest (fairest) price estimates. Two of my estimates were almost double the price of what Shawn's was. Shawn even suggested we frame the walls slightly differently since they were not load bearing and he checked with my township to make sure they would approve the slight difference and that alone saved me $1,000. Not one other contractor suggested this. Several contractors told me that my basement would take at least 3 months or so to finish and Shawn had it done - inspected and all in about 3 weeks of work time. He was always responsive to my emails/texts/calls to him, he showed up every single day that he said that he would and showed up on time (8 am). This even included showing up when it snowed and was below freezing weather. He worked a full day only taking a brief (sometimes only 30 mins) lunch (I've had other contractors who disappeared for hours during 'lunch'), and he cleaned up whatever mess he made as he was leaving each day - literally sweeping/mopping his way out of my front door. He was friendly, courteous, caring, professional - AND he did a fantastic job. My basement looks absolutely amazing. It was completely unfinished and its hard to believe that by looking at it now. I was so pleasantly surprised to have such a positive experience and pay a fair price and have my basement turn out amazing. I would recommend Shawn without any hesitation. He even noticed my tire was flat one day as he was entering my home and he filled it up with air for me. I truly can not say anything negative about the experience at all. Positive experience in every single way - and a great final product.

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.

Hassan made sure to not leave until the job was over. He also made sure a contractor came to patch up the holes in the house made by his work. He only takes cash, so be forewarned

I submitted a request for quotes last night. Several contractors indicated interest in our tree trimming job. We went with Lee partly because he indicated he was going to be in the area on another job. He and his coworker did a great job cleaning out an old tree that had significant overgrowth and dead branches. They mulched on the spot and did nice job of cleaning up. My wife and I are both pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Leon. Not only did he do a nice job, he was friendly and personable.

Nothing but good things to say. Jevon takes his job very seriously and his work is quality work. He is very honest which says a lot for a contractor. He tried to stay on our original timeline but there was an unexpected issue that stalled the project but once it started again he tried to complete the job as fast as he could w/o compromising quality. I’m very pleased to say the least. Would recommend him highly.

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.
