"Prompt, fast-working, and attentive, the Rooter man (I have forgotten his name) quickly figured out what drill to use and so open the drains. RE was available." Above all, I have a narrow stairway to my basement, and RE has the small equipment that other plumbers did not have. I will be calling
in another year or so for preventative plumbing.

"This was my first experience using a plumber (just bought a house) and it was a great one. My new house smelled so bad and I knew it had something to do with the" laundry/bathroom area. I actually called Stoppleworth Plumbing first and explained what was happening and they said there was nothing plumbing related that they could do. I called
next and they sent someone over right away to see if it was plumbing related. I have to say I think
went above and beyond trying to locate the source of the smell and he was not only friendly but extremely thorough. I cannot even say how grateful I am to not have to live with that sewer smell anymore! Thank you for the great service!

4 common plumbing scams and how to avoid them

Some plumbers are in the business just to make a quick buck. Here are four of the most common plumbing scams to watch out for and how to avoid them.

gas fireplace with fire burning
Fireplaces, Chimney Sweep, Plumbing

Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

If you notice water leaking from your shower, finding the cause can take some time. Learn how to trace the source and save some cash.

So you're in the bathroom minding your own business when you notice, ahem, seepage around the base of the toilet. It's not human error, but an issue with the john. The good news: It could be a relatively simple, inexpensive fix.

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.

After an initial scheduling error on their part and then a cancellation on our part, they arrived (on-time) for the "third" appointment and everything went great! In a half hour, not only did they diagnose and repair the problem with our shower, but they also noticed our toilet was running and repaired that problem for us as well.

They did beautiful work, and
Madison Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was a blast and a half! Definitely wins the Most Fun Contractor award. Our plumbing was in a state of serious disrepair and they did a great job with it. The one frustrating thing was that prior to the job I had told them we needed our bill split up a particular way--but despite telling me (albeit reluctantly) that they would do it, they did not. However, they did knock quite a bit off our bill, which certainly more than made up for that one hassle.

I contacted

to set up a service estimate.
Madison Plumbers Provider Name Locked
came out to my house to do the estimate. He was very courteous and laid-back. I didn't receive an amount when he came out; he said he would get back in touch with the amount the following week since he would be out of town. That in itself was fine with me, but then I never heard from him again. I followed up with a couple emails, but I never got a response. I had been leaning toward going with this provider but I was disappointed and surprised to have received no response after they'd already taken the trouble to come all the way out to my house.

I like that they take care of everything for me. Scheduling an appointment is easy. I like that they offer a comfort club reward where you pay a monthly fee that gives you priority. They will also offer discounts with that.

I called in the morning and they were able to come out the same day. They had 2 workers working together and it took them about 1.5 hours to determine the cause of the problem and unblock the pipes. They apologized that it took longer than normal since they found 2 different blockages in 2 different pipes. They were very friendly and careful about cleaning up everything afterwards. For the service they performed, I thought the price was very reasonable.

The installation was a little more complicated than just replaceing the faucet since the faucet (bought on eBay) had a slightly different configuration. The plumber ended up calling "The Tile Guy" to drill the holes larger in the tile deck. All in all, very good job was done and we would use them again.

stopped by, discussed the 5 items I had questions about. We agreed to tackle only 3 of the 5 because

had great suggestions for the other 2 that did not require his efforts. Not only that, but another idea he had saved us additional money on one of the other repairs. How wonderful it was to deal with someone like that! After setting up an appointment,

Great, timely service. Advised me to call

directly to plead for a new faucet, since this one has been a problem since installation. Gave me the part number to ask for specifically. Told me my water softener did NOT need to be replaced, and left me test strips to check it periodically.
