They were quick to respond to an emergency. However, they were in a hurry to get the job done and rushed it, which gives me little confidence the fix was done properly.

We have had Patriot Air & Plumbing out to the house several times. One time for the air conditioning. They showed up at the time scheduled and they wore the shoe protectors which I liked. Once the work was completed our air conditioner was cooling like a champ. We also called them about a plumbing leak. Again they showed up at the scheduled time. They did have to go under the house to fix the leak. Everything is working fine and we will call them again for any repairs or routine maintenance.

When I called Vinny, I needed help with a water leak in an outdoor spigot. He talked me through it in the phone and said I could possibly fix it myself. I followed his instructions and was able to fix it. I have recently spent thousands of dollars on plumbing repairs that are still not fully working. It was so nice to call someone who was honest and didn't want to overcharge me. I will call him again.

    My husband and I just recently bought another rental property and needed several repairs on the duplex. We found that we were going to need 4 different people, at 4 different times to make-ready. Fortunately, we found Mitch and he was able to repair everything himself. He worked on some electrical issues, on both bathrooms and repaired both bath tubs. He repaired the baseboards in the kitchen and installed a new dishwasher. He did some work on the roof and backyard as well. Overall, he did an amazing job with everything, and best, we got all our repairs taken care of at one time, instead of 4 different people at 4 different times. I would highly recommend using Mitch for your home repairs. He's professional, accommodating and does an amazimg job!

    My husband and I found David Johnson, of Decks to Desire, through Thumbtack.com I was reluctant to trust anyone because we had been using "Will at San Antonio Stain" for years to stain our deck and we WERE happy, but, suffice it to say, that company did us wrong on their last hire to build a fence for us. The fence built fell and our dog escaped and they never came to right a wrong and they would not return calls. So, it took me that many years to trust a contractor again. We needed our unmaintained deck of many years repaired and stained. I must share that we are BEYOND pleased with the service that we received from DECKS TO DESIRE!!! The work was done by David Johnson and his son and nephew. They each poured much love and passion into their QUALITY work. They definitely restored my trust in what was once lost. So much so, that we trusted them to build us a CUSTOM Rustic Mesquite Bench with a Bar Top!!! And, they put in double doors for us and with all of this they even found time to play fetch with our dog. If you are looking for an honest and reliable contractor, look no further!!!

      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.
