Steve was hired to to do what we thought was a simple tile job, replacing missing/damaged tiles to the shower wall in our recently purchased home. After removing the old tile, we were shocked to find out that the walls were totally rotted out! Upon further inspection he discovered the floor (and subflooring) under the tub was rotted also! The cause of all the water damage? Old, rusty deteriorated plumbing fixtures (pipes, drains faucets) that were hidden from plain view. Steve "held our hand" every step of the way, assuring us through his calm demeanor, expertise and skill as he spent the next three days tearing out all old bath and shower components (including floors and walls) and totally rebuilding and installing the new shower and tub! Knowing we were first time homeowners who just moved in, he was extremely generous with the bill he presented to us. We will definitely call on him for future repairs/remodel projects!

Super professional and helpful in walking me through options. He discussed what was included in the premium service for $250 all the way down to minimum service call of $85. If I thought this were a bigger job, I would likely hire them, but I don't think this is an $85 repair.

Excellent experience. Miles showed up well before scheduled appointment. Took care of pumping the septic tank and as a first time septic tank owner he was very helpful and very knowledgable about maintenance and proper care of the septic system. I will use him again when needed. I highly recommend ABC Septic Services.

Excellent customer service! Fair reasonable rates and Robert was meticulous with his work (replaced leaky bathtub faucet). Also put in an access door because the tub/shower did not have one. He is very good at his trade and called right back and was here within 3 hours after another call he was on. Wow! Eagle Plumbing Solutions even called and followed up the next day to be certain all was well with the repair/work that was performed. I would recommend this company to anyone, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Eagle Plumbing Solutions!!

We hired David to either replace or repair the tile floor in our kitchen. He came in, diagnosed the problem, and gave us the information we needed to make an informed decision about what we wanted to do. We ended up replacing the entire floor, as the previous job was very poorly done. After removing all traces of the previous floor, he worked with us to design a pattern that is absolutely beautiful! We were so happy with the work he was doing that we extended the project to include a tile backsplash and under cabinet lighting. The end result is a kitchen renovation that is beautiful, down to the last detail! Throughout the project David was always very fair and honest with his billing. The job he did was worth every penny and then some! We will always call David first for any future home needs, and recommend him without reservation.

We hired Steve to do various jobs in our bathroom that we were remodeling - Drywall, rerouting plumbing lines, and level the bathroom floor. He accurately estimate the length of time it would take to finish the job and stayed in schedule. Steve gave us an estimate and did not keep tacking on additional costs as the job progressed. Additionally, he arrived at my house when he said he would. He did a great job at a reasonable price and I would highly recommend him.

I would highly recommend Jim Stiles to anyone. From the first contact, he seem approachable. His quote was accurate and the lowest of any received. The work was performed quickly and efficiently. He left the work site in perfect condition. Should I need plumbing work done in the future, I will not hesitate to contact Jim.

Right before going out of town, our water heater went out. Holt Plumbing worked with our schedule to get it replaced. While our of town our neighbor let us know an outside faucet was running. When I called Holt they suggested they stopped the leak, but not do any major repairs until we returned home. I was so impressed with they way they handled the situation. Responses like these are only part of the reason we only use Holt Plumbing!

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.
