West was responsive to my request for a quote and did the work when he said he would do it. After the grading was complete there wasn't quite enough sod" to cover the area. When I brought this to
's attention he replied with "I did run a Little short on sod and will try to get more to you by mid next week." I have contacted him at least 4 times since then, and despite his promise to deliver the sod, he has not. It is now the first of October and will have to finish the job myself. For the most part the drain works, although the pitch doesn't allow the water in the line to drain completely. I was impressed with
until we paid for the job, but I may not use them again due to their lack of concern over this issue.

called me back the day after I first called him and came by that morning to give me an estimate. He was to come back the next day to do the work, but called" later in the afternoon and said he had a cancellation and could come right then. Great for me. He had cut a hole in the kitchen wall earlier to get an idea of the damage the screws had done to the waste pipe and had checked what he needed to buy for the toilet repair, so he picked those items up on his way back to the house. He offered to buy the spray foam for my fireplace fix-up as I had planned to do that myself, but when I asked him to add that to what he was doing, he said he'd be glad to do it. It took him and his helper about 2 hrs, and another quick run to Lowes to get it all completed. The toilet problem turned out to be a bit more than was initially obvious and required an additional part. Because I added on some additional work and the toilet project grew a bit, the initial estimate was no longer accurate. But even with the additions, it still did not increase the overall cost very much.
was a pleasure to work with, as was his helper. I could not have been more pleased. There is very little that he can't do and therefore he makes a great person to take care of those odd jobs (big and small) that crop up around the house.

"Excellent! We were getting water backing up in our back yard and seeping into the basement, a condition exacerbated by our terraced yard & deterioration of existing drain pipe system." Since Mr.
's work, we've been bone dry. Mr.
was present for the work. His bid was mid-range of several we received. His solution to our problem was innovative and successful. He is polite, professional, and timely.

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.

Drain Pipe Installation - Exterior, Limousine Service

Experts warn of environmental crisis as water supplies shrink and usage rises. Conservation is key to avoiding widespread drought.

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 was extremely satisfied with the customer service. I obtained 4 estimates, and
Richmond Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
was in the middle. Comparatively expensive, I thought it was a good price for what he was to do. They stayed in communication and did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. They were very flexible in working with my schedule. After the recent 3'' rain, there are a couple of problem areas yet to resolve. It is yet to be determined if that will be done. However, after talking with
Richmond Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
, I am confident it will be. I intend to use him to rebuild the walkway and would not hesitate to refer him to others.

I had an obvious drainage problem around my house and swimming pool resulting in water standing in several areas of my property and water inside my crawlspace.
Before the project began, I received a proposal from

. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions and explain the scope of work before the contract was signed.

and his crew were very professional and were wonderful to deal with throughout the whole project. They took great care of my property, digging all of the drainage trenches by hand. They took special care not to disturb the existing buried plumbing for my swimming pool. Each day

would show me the progress they had made and explained exactly what they were doing. He would always let me know when he and his crew were planning to be working on the property. He was very accommodating and took the time to answer all of my questions during the project. I was very impressed to see a huge improvement in the drainage of my yard even when the project was only partially complete. When the project was completed, he took the time to explain the entire drainage system he had installed and how it was supposed to function. I can't say enough good things about

and his workers. They did an excellent job, especially in the midst of the heat and humidity that were present during the entire project.
I would most definitely recommend this company to anyone needing drainage work done.

Plumbing and Heating installed a faucet on the outside of my foundation a little more than a year ago. I was very impressed with the company at that time. Recently, the faucet began leaking badly. They had to replace an integral part of the faucet. I was equally impressed with the company this time. They were professional, came on time,. made the repair and honored the previous work free of charge. Their customer service is, in my opinion, unparalleled compared with most companies.

Found them on Angie's list. Contacted them and they sent someone out to look at the problem. (The problem was leakage from a broken clean out valve). Was told an estimate was difficult because the pipe needed to be uncovered to determine extent of damage. Was given an estimate of $1500-2500. I ok'd the work and provided an down payment of $750. (I was quoted a $1500 down payment but objected and it was reduced to $750) Because of another large job and weather scheduling the work was a challenge for them and me. Once finally scheduled they showed up on time and completed the work in less than a day. The area of work was in a tough location to get to. They were great in getting the machinery to where it needed to be with very little impact on the surrounding area. Pipe was replaced and soil restored to original condition. No seeding or straw was placed in the area although I thought that was to be included. This was not a big problem as the work was done in area that I intend to leave natural. Upon completion of the work we were told total cost was $2500 and a 10% Angie's List discount was applied bringing the final cost to $2250. The invoice was e mailed a few days later.

From the first contact with

until the last, everyone I dealt with was profressional and courteous. The office personnel who provided the initial information and estimate and who kept me updated on the progress of the project -- which was mired by complications caused by the City and not
Richmond Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
-- was an example of exemplary customer service. In addition, the people who actually performed the service were likewise professional and always willing to let me know what was going on and why. They worked with the City to obtain the best solution for our sewer line replacement and did not charge me more because of the City's problems, even though they had to do more work, over a longer time period, than anticipated by the estimate and contract. I would recommend this company to anyone facing sewer line replacement. The best company with the best service and highest level of customer service and integrity.

Three guys arrived at 8:30 am and started digging up my front yard from house (went under the front sidewalk) to the street. I was very impressed with their efficiency and neatness. From start to finish it took them about 8 hours, but part of that time was waiting for the County inspector before they could close up the hole.
They turned an unexpected and unpleasant experience into one that I can now boast about. So glad I found them on Angie's List!!
