John's service was outstanding. He mounted a ceiling fan and he mounted my T.V. and hid all wires along with the cable box and DVD box. He was on time, professional and very knowledgeable. His rates were very competitive and I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for a great contractor.

He was very personable from the beginning. One of the best contractors we have ever had and we will definitely be using him again. We were unsure of what was wrong with the pipes under the sink - he was able to identify the problem and help us through the issue, teaching us how to manage the situation on our own in the future. We would recommend him to anyone.

Ramone is very professional and he took care of roof leak. He arrived on time as promised and quickly get to the work by understanding where the leak was. He came second day to fix some drywall issue as well. Reasonable price and he offers warranty on his work if in case any issues. The same job was quoted by other contractors 3 times more than what I paid him. I am considering hiring for some more work I am planning and waiting on his experience informatiom from him.

Ricky helped us with repairing our main sewer line. He gave us a bid for the job and was out the next day doing the repairs. He gave us a extremely fair price compared to other local plumbing companies that we had out. We ran into a slope issue which was not expected, he handled the situation and he stayed until he got the problem resolved. He cares about what he does and treated our home as we would. I definitely recommend him and will use him again for any future plumbing projects.

Super thorough job! I had a window leak; unlike the last contractor we called, he used caulk that matched the siding of our house on the outside, and the caulk job on the inside was professional, neat, and clean. He also guarantees his work and will come back free of charge if it leaks again.

Working with Oliver has been fantastic! He started out doing a painting project in the upstairs and did so well that we hired him to do more downstairs. We Had a difficult time with another contractor for our kitchen upgrade and he took over that project for us as well. We have been so happy with his work that we are hiring him to do some projects at our new house as well. He is always early, does exactly what we request and makes suggestions that are always very helpful. He cleans up when he is done and always thanks us for the opportunity to work for us. I cannot say enough about this contractor. Hire him!

We had some siding repair needed on our rental property. We were fortunate to find John Szilagyi, General Contractor. John did all the leg work to find a compatible siding to blend with our 6 year discontinued siding. He made the whole ordeal easy for us and his workmanship was flawless. He got the job done as he said he would and left no mess behind. I would highly recommend John Szilagyi, General Contractor and would certainly work with him again with no hesitation.

I'm recently single and now, getting even the smallest household jobs complete seems like a challenge. I purchased a small storage shed that I found at a discounted rate during black Friday sales and have been looking for someone to put it together without charging more than I paid for it since November. I finally decided to post the job here and that's how I found Sean. He was very professional, was on time and kept his word about the price and time-frame for the completion of the job. He even went the extra mile and fixed a few small things that he noticed without me even asking. I have definitely found my new handyman/contractor and I am so grateful! Sean is just an all around nice guy and a great contractor!

Michael's HVAC repaired the leaking pipe to our tub. He came in a very short time of initial contact. He wore protective covers on his shoes, did a thorough job, and left the area super clean. In fact, I believe his repair is better than the original pipe. Michael's used copper pipe to strengthen the hot water connection instead of total plastic pipe as originally installed. His prices are reasonable. I would recommend him and use him again.

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.
