Glenn was awesome on a plumbing repair. He is on time, super friendly and knowledgable in several areas. He explaines all the work needed and or, that has been done in detail. His work was clean and professional and I hope to use Glenn for several more projects, for many years to come.

Zeev promptly responded to my request within 2 hours for plumbing repair on a leaky pipe under my sink. He exceeded my expectations by arriving later in the day and fixed the leaking! Zeev went out of his way to go to Ace Hardware to pick up a part that would fix my issue. I highly recommend Zeev for any plumbing needs!

Edward showed up with a smile and promptly as scheduled. He not only took on the small plumbing repair project I hired him for, but he also fixed 3 additional problems I had in my home during his brief visit, and at an amazingly reasonable price! He took the time to explain the steps of each fix to me, diagnosed and repaired each issue quickly, and was patient while doing so, all with an upbeat attitude. Highest praise for Dass Maintenance and Edward. I'd give him lots more stars if I could. THANK YOU!

Joe from Rise Solutions was incredible! Don't hesitate to hire them; you won't be disappointed. We've dealt with a number of contractors in the Portland area over the past few years and Joe was the most pleasant and professional one we've had the pleasure to work with. He was very responsive when we first contacted him and showed up on time the day of the job ready to go with a pleasant attitude. He even did some homework before the install date and contacted the manufacturer of our toilet to be sure there wouldn't be any surprises. As it turns out, the toilet we purchased online wouldn't fit in our old bathroom and we were stuck with a nasty old hole in our floor. Joe had no way of knowing this until actually removing the old toilet and trying to fit the new one. Joe wasn't going to let this stop us from having a new toilet. He suggested we return the Amazon toilet and get a new one that day and he'd continue with the install. My wife and I don't own a car and had no way of getting to the shop to purchase another one. Joe was kind enough to drive us to the nearest plumbing store and wait patiently while we shopped for a toilet that would fit in our small, old bathroom. He dealt with the sales person and made sure our selection would fit. Joe went above and beyond to say the least. The cost was more than fair and his work is rock solid! Rise Solutions will be our go to contractor for all of our plumbing needs for now on. Thanks, Joe!

Lino did an excellent job of cleaning up and preparing my rental house for occupancy after it was vacated without being properly cleaned or cared for. He did major cleaning in the kitchen, painting and wall touch-up in the living room, minor cupboard and storm window repair; and cleaning of gutters and debris left behind by previous tenants. He came to the job exactly at the time promised, worked diligently, and completed the work on time. He asked me about a couple of things I had overlooked--and agreed to take care of them. I was completely satisfied with the quality, time required, and cost of the work Lino completed. I will definitely use him again and have no reservations in commending him for the good work he did on my house.

I found Jarrod at the last minute and he took care of a very time sensitive problem for me. He showed up when he said he would, did the work for less than his estimate, and was extremely personable throughout the job. Once our new manufactured is sited, I will be having Jarrod back to do the needed water and sewer lines. Oh, and he has a really cool truck!! Jerry Broetje

Victor got in touch with me and was able to come out to temporarily solve our issue with water. He git here just before 1pm and just left before 10pm. Turns out it was a tee in the hot water feed to the kitchen ssink and dishwasher split. The pipe is some sort of PVC and splitting as he kept trying to repair. He finally had to put an exterior sleeve around by bad pipe and then his replacement into the other side of the sleeve. We figured the pressure “thump” of hot water turn on/off plus some syof bad PVC (maybe it was exposed to UV before installation 21+ years ago?). Victor did not give up until we had water again and his repair will last!! I will definitely hire this company again and ask specifically for Victor!! I’m also going to call the company Monday and tell them what a great guy they have!

Warren and his team were professional, hard working and extremely good at communicating. They are the kind of guys that everyone wants to hire but no one can find! I would without a doubt hire them again. They did several projects for us including, drywall repair, tile repair, plumbing, floor leveling and much more! These guys are the real deal.

Had a deck project that required removing and replacing all the decking material. Once into the project, it was clear that some of the support wood needed replacing too. We're so glad the project manager looked at the big picture, not just the top layer of wood and work. Great job, on budget, with additional information, on time. Despite rain. Thanks for the work!

    Josh Cooley estimated and hour to replace our natural gas hot water heater... he had it installed in half that estimated time. He was also very professional and patient as we had to locate our landlord to pay the repair bill. Why? Because the original install date was the day before but Mr. Cooley had a shift in scheduling; which he had to push the install to the next day. He promptly contacted me to reschedule, which worked out better for my family. Within an hour after he completed the install we were able to locate our landlord and deliver his payment. Our landlord took Mr. Cooley's name and telephone number down for future reference. Thx Mr. Cooley!!!

    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.
