"TERRIBLE! Run for your life! This guy says he knows how to do things & does not. He describes a job at the outset, and then doesn't do it at all the way he originally described." Instead of hand digging a trench to install the drain, he dug up my entire back yard, side yard, and damaged the front yard with his bobcat. once the yard was a sea of mud, I had to let him continue till it was covered up just to have a somewhat serviceable yard for my dogs to use. He didn't put gravel around the pipe, never covered up the original t-pipe he put in where the water would originate, and then didn't daylight the drain pipe. He buried it, so it doesn't actually exit. Then, when he was supposed to
the sod - he let it sit on his trailer till it was half dead. By the time he went to
the sod in the yard, he never leveled the yard. He laid sod over a sea of mud that had large balls of dirt everywhere. It's like walking on moon rocks. Every time I asked about it - he said it would settle . . . .I now have a totally uneven yard, damage, and pooling water in many places where it didn't pool before. Then entire job needs to be re-done. At the end he left his huge trailer in my driveway for days. I had to threaten him to get him to remove it. I never want to see this guy again. He says his work is "guaranteed" . . .really? He doesn't know what he's doing in the first place, so how could he possibly fix the job he botched? He has no business saying he knows anything about landscaping or drainage. He's a total imposter, posing as a contractor.

"Technicians excavated connection point with city easement. They jackhammered the concrete in the basement floor to have access to the sewer pipe. They inserted the new pipe by pulling" it through the old sewer pipe. This method is called trenchless pipe bursting.

"We contacted
in early June just after we had experienced flooding in our basement after unusually heavy rains. He came out soon after to give us a proposal" to divert runoff away from the house. He projected that it would be August before he could get to our job, which was fine with us. On the scheduled day, four workers arrived around 9:30 and worked nonstop until the project was finished.
came later in the day to inspect and give more instructions. At the end of the day, we had a swale cut across the yard, a downspout directed into a French drain, dirt mounded up against the foundation and covered with landscape fabric, and a retaining wall rebuilt and enlarged to form a detention basin. The machine that was used to carry rock and soil made many trips across the yard and pretty well destroyed the grass in its path, but that was unavoidable. There was no mess to clean up afterwards. I later seeded the swale area with grass and will plant other things in the detention area next spring. I covered the landscape fabric next to the foundation with rock. We have had only one heavy rain since the work was done, and no water came into the basement, but that wasn't a conclusive test. We have had flooding only 3 or 4 times in 15 years in this house, so we may have to wait a while to get a real test. We think that the landscaping will probably solve the problem.

Why dig? Trenchless sewer line replacement bypasses the backhoe

Pipe lining and bursting replacement techniques offer alternatives to traditional sewer line excavation.

The main sewer line is the homeowner's responsibility up to the edge of the property.

From the sounds of it, you have a clog between the floor drain and the connection to the city sewer (unless you have a septic tank).  The lower flow rates of sinks / showers / dishwashers probable don't cause a backup like the washing machine does.  A couple of suggestions.

1.  Snake the drain line with a spade tip snake, twisting the snake as you advance it.  This should clear the partial blockage.

 2.  If feasable, have your washing machine discharge into a utility sink and put a strainer on the drain to catch the clothing fibre (fibres and grease from the sink probably made the clog in the first place not to mention a garbage disposal).

3.  Replace your floor drain with one that has a backflow preventer (looks like there is a ping pong ball in it).

 Good Luck

It is not uncommon for a plumber to have to go get the parts necessary to repair and complete the job.  It is very hard to determine what the problem is over the phone and it is not until the repair process begins that the parts needed to resolve the problem is discovered.  It may also depend on if the plumber is using hourly rates or per job rates.  I would hope the time to get the parts would be minimal and the charge would be as well!
?
FYI: CPVC and PEX are two different materials and installed differently.  PEX is not intended to be glued but instead has special crimp fittings.  PEX is a brand name of one product that is manufactured slightly differently by others as well so it is important that the same brand fittings are used to match the pipe material.

Mobile homes used CPVC for years and some still do.  It works fine but is not as strong as a properly soldered copper pipe system.  Is the contractor installing this new plumbing a licensed plumber?  I'd be surprised if he is since he's using CPVC and not PEX (or similar) or copper.  PEX pipe is even cheaper than CPVC when run by a knowledgable plumber.  It doesn't require nearly as many joints since it comes in rolls and can flex through spaces easily.

There are some groups raising a fuss about BPA and other chemicals found in plastics that don't like the use of CPVC, PVC, or PEX pipe.  I haven't seen the results of any lab tests to confirm or dispute their concerns.  As far as durability goes it's fairly safe as long as it's properly installed and secured.  It is not as susceptible to hard water damage as copper.  It absolutely must be insulated along it's entire length to protect it from contact to other materials as well as freezing.  Also, the fixtures in the house need to be grounded electrically since the pipe itself provides no electrical protection against accidental shock or electrocution.  In a copper plumbed house the system is grounded so static electricity, a short in a wire near a water line, or lightning strike will carry the current out through the pipe instead of through the water to you, ideally.

If it's installed correctly you should be fine but make sure the contractor knows what he is doing and follows the proper procedures to use CPVC pipe.

It is usually cheaper to remove part of the ceiling below and patch it after the leak has been repaired.  Remember that water can travel before settling in one area, causing the spot you've seen.  Just because it is below the toilet does not mean that the toilet is the problem.  The cheapest option is to pull the toilet and check the floor around the wax ring to see if it has been leaking.  A new wax ring only costs a few dollars.  When was the last time you caulked the shower in that bathroom?  The water can leak around the corners or at the door (if you have one) and travel along the floor joists until it pools in a lower spot on the ceiling below, then seep through.  It could also be a seal at the drain of the tub or shower. 

I get a few calls a year for this sort of thing.  It's usually something simple but can be a nightmare to diagnose, especially if the problem is intermittent.  Start with the simple possibilities and use deductive reasoning to narrow the possibilities.  Before you do a lot of damage it may pay off to hire a reputable contractor to help you make sure you've exhausted all of the imple and more obvious possibilities.

The simple answer is ,"No!" The only way to effectively clean grease and scum from a drain line (or a neighborhood, jk) is with high pressured water. The machine they use is called a Jetter, many drain cleaning companies have them.
?
Do you know the age of the existing valve?  Are you sure the existing valve is a ball valve and not a gate valve?  Gate valves notoriously fail after prolonged periods of being either open or shut.  The rubber washer breaks down or gets mineral build up on it and then it won't shut off.  Whether the valve is bad or not it's a lot cheaper to replace it while he's got the area dug up and working on those connections than having him return to dig it up and pull it all back apart again due to a leaking valve.  The valve will run around $20 and the pipe isn't much either (price depends on the type of pipe).  Labor is an few minutes so he likely isn't charging you any more in labor costs to put the new valve in than he would to do the rest of the work anyway.

Like Vern said, he has a minimum amount he has to charge to cover his costs and still make money.  Being a contractor of any sort is not cheap with all of the government regulation, higher fuel costs, tool costs, etc.  It probably costs him at least $200 a day just to be in business if he's a self employed independent.  More for someone with a shop and answering service, etc.  Most plumbers around here are going to charge at least $100/hour with a minimum charge.  It'll probably take him 2-3 hours to install everything so he's really not out of line.  You might be able to find someone a little cheaper but check their reputations.

I had an excellent experience from the start to the finish of this project. My interaction with several
Kansas City Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
staff members was pleasant and professional. An onsite inspection of my area was performed instead of an over-the-phone quote that other companies provided. They were prompt to the job site and constantly communicated status of activity during the entire process. The installation team performing the work was polite, friendly, professional, and experienced. Their positive attitudes caught my attention quick. Team oriented. I appreciated them being very cautious, careful, and considerate of the surrounding areas of my home. I would definitely recommend

we had so much rain that delayed the start date several times. We had an inch of rain the first night and the owner stopped the next morning and said he wanted to make some changes to the slope of the yard. It took two more days to finish the grading and we have not had any water problems since that was done. I was impressed that the owner came by and recommend the changes and did the grading in a timely manor.

We have had chronic problems with water damage on the end of our house. Previous contractors have done poor repairs which only made the issues worse.

traced the problem to a gap between the exterior foundation wall and the siding, which was allowing water to come in under the flooring and caused the existing tile to buckle. His renovations have fixed the damage and corrected the leak: the last good rainstorm left us high and dry. Very nice job all around.

I used

to waterproof the house. They recommended an extra tough Watchdog sealant, french drains, and a sump pit (just in case). The salesman was very knowledgible. He said if the sump pit ever had water in it, just call and they'd be right out to put in the pump. We ended up having three leaks. One was in the corner of the foundation and two in the suspended garage area. It look like the cement guys didn't do a good job, it was way above the waterproofing. Actually, none of the leaks were

They did a lot of work. The work was good except that you need to keep an eye on the workers. You should be at home when they are working. The supervision was good. The owner guaranteed his work and you
Kansas City Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
?t have to give him money until it?s done, which is extraordinary. You really feel nice about his work. A lot of people are nervous about giving money in the beginning itself because you may never see them again. He was recommended to me by somebody who was doing an energy audit that I trusted. So this work was kind of part of the energy audit. The workers dug up the flagstone path to move the gutter out to the street and when they put it back, they just put the flagstone on top of the mulch. Flagstones are supposed to be even with the soil and not just laying on top of it. So they had to do it again just because there was no supervision for that job.

is very professional and did an excellent job. He described what he recommended when he first came out to my house, discussed various options, gave good suggestions, and then completed the job in a very timely manner. Many neighbors have remarked to me how nice my yard looks, and commented on the nice clean up job he did afterwards. He spent over two hours cleaning the driveway and street area. He laid down plywood sheets to protect my yard while he worked. I am very pleased with the work, and would highly recommend him. He is a very hard worker, and does high quality work.

I had recurring problems with tree roots blocking my drain. Finally it got too bad to simply rod it out anymore,the line was diagnosed as broken. I was referred to

by somebody else on Angie's List (can't remember who). They came out within a week after I hired them. Although the job turned out to be more difficult than originally thought they still managed to complete most of the work in one day and came back the next day to clean up.
