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.

Michael was hired to remove and old utility sink/faucet in our basement, install a replacement sink/faucet, replace a failed washer shutoff, replace a spot light fixture on the back of our house that had fallen off, and fix some problems with our vinyl siding. Michael showed up on time and completed each and every job to our TOTAL satisfaction, all in a single day! His work is of the highest quality. Michael is quite knowledgeable about all aspects of home repair. I would not hesitate to hire him for any future projects. I've already given his number to multiple family members and friends who need an honest and capable contractor for their projects. THANK YOU MICHAEL!

INSPECT AND ANALYZE WATER/SEWER BACKUP IN NEW HOME My son and his fiancé own a new home in Fishtown. They paid in excess of 500k for the home and took possession at closing in January 2016. This is their dream home and represents a major financial commitment on their part. Since they took possession and ownership, their basement has flooded on two separate occasions in less than 6 months. As a result of the first flooding, the new flooring in the basement was damaged and now needs complete replacement. This expense will be borne by my son and his fiance. In addition, their worrisome concern about the prospect of future flooding has also led to capping the plumbing fixtures in the basement until some kind of fix can be achieved. This means the basement toilet and shower will not be usable for an indefinite period of time. On both occasions a significant amount of rain fell, so there may or may not be some question whether the combined sewer/waste water line that runs under their street was overly taxed by an unusually high volume of water that fed into the sewage line. However, the question of backflow of water into such a new house also raised a significant question about the adequacy and workmanship of the home's newly constructed plumbing system. In an effort to investigate the facts concerning the builder's performance, I reached out to Josh at Solution Based Plumbing on an early Sunday morning. That same morning, as he headed into church, Josh told me he would make himself available to look at the situation later that very morning! I honestly could not believe that he would make himself available to assist me on such short notice. When he arrived for the inspection as promised, he looked around, explained his preliminary findings, and recommended that he do a camera test of the water lines to assess and evaluate the situation. He made clear he would call the situation as he found it, and that he would not come to any adverse decision about the plumbing if his findings were simply "marginal" for poor installation. Two days later, and as scheduled, Josh performed the camera test. He viewed the inside of the plumbing lines carefully and explained to my son and me what he was looking at as he went. He found two significant builder's performance issues in the water line leading out of the house to the street. He carefully detailed his observations and findings and explained their impact on the drainage issue and their contribution to the backflow my son experienced since moving into the house. He said he would follow up with a written report of his findings, and he proceeded to do so within 24 hours after leaving the house. IF EVER my son needs to deal with plumbing-related issues that the builder refuses to address under his warranty, my son (and I) will not hesitate to call Josh back for assistance. There are several reasons I can say this without hesitation. Josh is competent, well spoken, polite, professional, objective, responsive, and honest. He and his company provide a level of service that is uniquely reliable for customers who are looking for fair, honest and reasonably priced solutions to their plumbing problems. His wife, Stacy, provides tremendous administrative support to complement Josh's hands on involvement. This company and its owner/operator is the real deal that customers in need of plumbing services are looking for. Josh and Stacy fully acknowledge the importance of customer focus in delivering a vital service to the public, fully consistent with their statement of ethics which you can view on their website. Thank you Josh and Stacy!! John

Needed a basement finished that was started by another contractor. Work included drywall, taping, etc., some framing, floor repair, door and trim installation. Sam got it all done in less than a week at a fair price. He recommended a painter and a flooring man and they should be done in another week. Sam is a good guy and the quality of his work is fantastic! Would definitely hire him again and highly recommend him.

Glenn has seriously turned out to be the absolute best contractor that I have ever worked with! Ive had the opportunity to work with several others, both at my homes and at my businesses. A few contractors have been good, doing nice work for a fair price, but they were either too slow, too unreliable, or just couldn’t come up with creative ways to do things that were needed. Glenn completely remodeled a new salon for me, and built a custom color bar shelf, front desk, reclaimed beam stylist counter, and retail shelves. He worked with my budget, helping me make decisions based on the priorities, and was extremely friendly, professional, and reliable every step of the way. He went above and beyond, even facetiming with me or communicating with my husband when I was under the weather and couldn’t make it to the job site. I highly recommend him for any project, and will be using his services for every future project that I have, both in business and my home.

I hired Kevin to help do some wiring, framing, and drywall so I would be able to mount a tv in a difficult location. He was very knowledgeable and was able to find some creative ways to get around a few unexpected problems he encountered once the wall was opened up. Another contractor I had come to look at the project told me it was no possible and left but now the job is done and my tv looks great with no wires showing.

If you are looking for a honest professional technician to hire, All Valley Rooter & Plumbing is the best choice for you. According to my experience I would recommend this contractor because of his loyalty and professionalism. In fact I had a hug clogged toilets (2). After the inspection with camera, Jarred (the plumber) found that all my pipes are clogged because of broken pipes that allowed muds into them. He used the snake to show me the evidence and then suggested to me to replace all pipe. He dogged and I could see the pipes with mud inside. The work was done as planed. We talked about price before he began the work et he is not expensive. He charge me for the right price. After the work done, I wanted to give him a tip because I was very happy, but he declined saying I just pay the good price. I like also he availability and advice.

Quick response. Communicative. Could've accepted Amex for payment but I understand why he didn't. At this point, it would appear he did indeed fix the problem. (My careful wording is reflective of my experience with other contractors - i.e. issue seems fixed for the moment but later on, shows itself to clearly NOT be fixed)

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.

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.

We wish we hired Building Leaders to do the renovation that we undertook two years ago - they would have saved us a lot of money, time, and frustration. They honestly reinstilled our faith in the contracting community - we've had several terrible experiences from other contracting companies. This was such different and positive experience, we wanted to share. If you're looking for a contractor who is honest, keeps his promises, who delivers quality outcomes and within budget, and respects your home/personal space -- Building Leaders needs to be considered. They were hired to bring a pretty complex project and design to life. Sami, the owner, did an amazing job partnering with our Interior Designer, Keegan Riotto from Revamp Designs. They successfully completed a 3 month project that included a complete demolition of an unusable space. The scope of work included building of multiple decks, build out and construction of new closets/rooms. They also masterfully installed a stacked stone wall - they did such an awesome job, the stacked stone manufacture has sent a photographer to take photos to showcase in their catalog/websites. Sami and team also installed ~800sq ft of Aztek pavers, completed electrical work to support a complex lifting scheme, roofing work, etc. Bottom line, Building Leaders -- is a very professional, honest, and skilled company that took Revamp's designs and beautifully transformed a once unusable space to an oasis that we're able to use on daily basis. His team was challenged with weather and other issues and they absolutely did an amazing job. One last item to share...those of you who've had renovations or work done on your house while living there - it can be terribly disruptive and stressful when you have the wrong contractor who does not respect the fact that you are living there during construction (we have small children) -- Sami and his team were so respectful and thoughtful in this regard - they took precautions to ensure our home and personal property (and kids) were cared for/safe and they the time to clean up the site EVERY day!! Thanks Building Leaders/Sami, we love our new spaces and appreciate they great work. I highly recommend Sami and his team - honest to work with, competitively priced, stellar craftsmanship, on time and extremely respectful.

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.
