"They did not know what they were doing and installed everything wrong. I live on a hill and because the driveway was not done correctly it caused flooding that" was washing away the dirt along the driveway. I contacted them about it and they wanted to charge me to fix their mistakes and then when I asked them for their insurance information to make a claim they refused to give it to me. I would not use them for concrete work or a french drain installation.

"He arrived on time and after more digging than planned he found the sewer line and put his camera in to determine where the break was. The line was over 7 feet" deep, which is more than usual, but the real problem was the huge amount of large limestone chunks that had to be removed in addition to dirt and tree roots. His excavator is plenty powerful and small enough to go between most houses. He also has a Bobcat loader and dump truck. He stuck to his bid even though it took longer than planned. The big hole was backfilled and leveled out nicely, ready for a little raking and some grass seed. In the past has also delivered gravel to other of my properties. His truck is small enough that it should not damage driveways.

Few kitchen appliances get as much use as the garbage disposal. And over the years, common issues such as jamming and leaking can occur. However, a disposal not operating properly or maintained can break down and cause plumbing issues - leading to costly repairs.

Take off the lid to the tank and check inside.  There should be a small hose going into a larger pipe near the middle of the tank right next to the flapper.  When you flush the toilet water squirts from that hose into the pipe.  If it isn't in place put it back so that water goes down that pipe once again.  This is what refills your bowl.  If water does not come out of the little hose check to see if it is kinked or blocked.  You can take it off and blow air through it.  Don't worry, it's only clean water that goes through the hose.  If it is clear and water does not come out of the short pipe where it attaches on the flush valve then there is a clog in that valve and it will probably need to be replaced.  These are $10-20 at any home improvement store and even Wal-Mart.  The instructions are simple and you can do it yourself in about 15 minutes.  Check the washer on the supply hose to the toilet while it is off to replace the flush valve.  If it is old or worn replace the hose as well.  It is cheap insurance of only a few dollars which is a lot cheaper than a failed hose or washer causing water to leak.


If you don't feel comfortable replacing the fill valve, if it is needed, a handyman can do it fairly cheap.  Whereas a plumber or other contractor will have a minimum charge of $100-200 a handyman might do it for about $50.

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!

Well , you've certainly started a debate that will endure forever , but personally , having worked with both products , PEX is a better product . Now granted , the 1st time i used it

I was not impressed , cause it leaked.......NOT because the product was at fault, it was because I did not understand how to use the product !

The trick to using Pex , is to make certain that the fittings seat, they MUST be pushed together with force, and if you do not push with force to get the seat to seal, it leaks .

Therefore , when using PEX , you have constantly to be aware of leaving room to make your connections -Properly !

The beauty of PEX is that it bends , it is flexible and decreases the labor factor ,although the connection costs are often 100-300 % higher than copper , but again , it can cut labor costs in half  and it is safer to work with,  NO FLAMEs!

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.

Drain Pipe Installation reviews in Kansas City


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 ...More 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.

- Renee P.

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 ...More 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.
- Lisa C.

I had an excellent experience from the start to the finish of this project. My interaction with several 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 ...More 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 to my friends and family.
- Derrick S.

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 ...More and recommend the changes and did the grading in a timely manor.
- Ed M.

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 ...More 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 ...More 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 's fault. I called and a guy came by the next day ( just like they told me they would). They sealed the foundation and the garage area. That was over 8 years ago. The installer was knowledgible and nice. we've never had water in the sump pit. we've never had a leak at the other two places either. I would recommend for all your needs. They performed just like you'd expect: They told me what they were going to do, when they were going to do it, and did exactly that. I only wish my plumber and HVAC companies were that good.
- jeff D.

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 ?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 ...More 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.
