"My daughter called to say that she had been trying to unclogged the toilet for two days (why did she wait to call !) I called at 4:50pm and was told that there" was one call ahead of me and to except someone after 6pm. Because it was after hours it would be time and a half. No problem. He arrived at 5:30 and had the toilet unclogged in 5 minutes. Got the basic all rate, no extra charge. Fast, cheerful, funny and courteous. I didn't get his name because I was at my home, not my daughter's. She's happy, I'm happy and I hope
is happy with the review. Next time there is a problem
Plumbing Service is the one to call

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.

Hiring a Plumber

When you need a plumber, especially for an expensive project for which you have time to plan, make sure you hire one who is fully qualified and licensed in your state. A plumber may be an apprentice, a journeyman or a highly qualified master plumber, depending on the level of training and experience.

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

Food you shouldn't put in the garbage disposal

What do coffee grounds, pasta and liquid drain cleaner have in common? Their ability to damage your drain.

Plumbing

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.

Plumbing

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.

Called around 930 and the phone was answered by

, they had guys in the area, I had
Modesto Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and his follower who's name I do not know at my door within 5 minutes of my call. He looked at the shut offs in the front, looked at the lake growing in the back, and asked me what I wanted in terms of addressing the problem. Made a quick trip to grab a part he didn't have and had the thing taken apart and put together properly by 11. Spent a few minutes changing out the flapper in the toilet (I was just charged for the flapper on that one.) and wrote me a receipt for 257.

I sent an e-mail through Angies site and received a call within a couple of hours from
Modesto Plumbers Provider Name Locked
. They set up an appointment for the next day between 9:00 and 10:00.
Modesto Plumbers Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and I showed him where the bathroom was and after just a few minutes of turning the water on and off he knew what the problem was. He told me he was going to remove both stems and take them with him to the hardware store to be sure that he got the right ones. The stems come in many different sizes. I had assumed that the appointment was just to do an estimate and an appointment to repair the faucets would be made in a few days. When

got back with the new stems he went ahead and installed them. I was very happily surprised. I thought it would at least be 2 or 3 days before the faucets were repaired.

Well they didn't fix the problem so I had another plumber come out and replace a worn out rubber ring and everything has
functioned very well. He said it should have been obvious what the issue was.
I could have bought a new toilet for what it cost me to replace a rubber ring!

The job went well. They were friendly and helpful to a first time customer. They did the job within a week of my calling. They were punctual, professional and efficient. Later in the day, I discovered a small leak under one of the sinks. I called the office and they sent the repairman right back to fix it. It's been fine ever since.

Originally, work estimate was only for the house water valve, shower drain, to switch hot and cold water to second shower and
Modesto Plumbers Provider Name Locked
hook up the utilty sink in the garage. At the time of the estimate, the representative fixed the 'hot and cold problem' with the second shower by making adjustments to the
Modesto Plumbers Provider Name Locked
valve with no charge (a previouse estimator said that the fix would require cutting and switching the feed pipes under the house)
When work started on replacing the shower drain, the technician was unable to hook into the original sewer line as the pipe apparently crumpled when he tried to work on it. The estimator then took photoes of many of the joints in the original sewer system which all appeared to have thin white lines (calcium deposits) coming from them suggesting many slow leaks from inadequately glued joints. He told me that this was a result of using some sub-standard pipe which had commonly been sold in the 1970's where the manufacturer had produced out-of-spec pipe that was then melted down and re-cast. The result was that the reformed pipe late proved to not take glue well in the joints, and ,with time, became very brittle.
I was advised that retaining the original sewer lines wouls risk an eventual breakage of one of the lines which would probably not be detected till after the under house crawl space was flooded with sewage. At that point, ther would be a significant clean-up cost incurred as the need to replace the sewage pipes. I therefore opted to have the company go ahead with their recommendations and replace all the sewage pipes in addition to the originl work.
I could be wrong, but the final price did seem a little high. However, I was impressed with the original free fix of the hot/cold water shower proble and It was not practical to get further estimates, so I accepted their final estimate.
