How much extra do you charge for service on the weekends and at night?

Zero. All job rates are standard regardless of the day or time. We can arrive to your home after work or on the weekends.

Water is backing up into the toilet and bathtub, what is wrong?

If there are two fixtures backing up, especially in different rooms, there is most likely a main sewer line blockage. We can cable out the line with a snake to break up many clogs. For stubborn clogs we have the capability for a camera inspection or drain jetting.

My toilet is clogged, what can I do?

Do you empty septic tanks? How much does it cost? When can you be here?

We empty septic tanks all day long everywhere in Tampa Bay and Sarasota. Rates vary depending on your location so call us now to get a free estimate and ETA.

I have a water leak but don’t know where it is. How much to fix it?

The first priority is to find out where the leak is before giving you a free estimate on fixing it. If it is not visible, we will have to perform a leak detection to isolate the leak and then we’ll know how much to charge for the job. There are several ways to locate a leak depending on where we suspect it to be. Call us for more particulars about how we will be able to help you?
