gave me an estimate on cost & started right away. Work progressed smoothly--had to wait on city inspection for final completion.

-allen P.

"Excellent experience from start to finish! I initially contacted two other top rated landscape companies through ANGIE's List. After waiting about ten days" for a response and not receiving one from either company, I started over again with two more top rated companies.
was one of them. This time around both companies contacted me quickly and both came out to take a look and provided quotes. One of the companies showed up on time and took a quick look around and sent us a
quote within a few days.
also showed up on time and returned a timely quote but the real difference is he took his time walking around our yard with my husband and me. He had excellent ideas and suggestions for ways we might improve our
appeal from the front and our personal enjoyment of the back yard area and he showed a genuine enthusiasm for this job. We had some issues to address with drainage and plumbing and
knew exactly what to do. When we received his quote it was comprehensive with all the breakdown of materials, labor, delivery and disposal fees, etc. In my experience, the more comprehensive the quote is, the better the final outcome. We did not chose
because it was the lowest quote, we chose them because we felt and instant trust in
and we liked the way he presented the quote. The job started on time and was completed in a reasonable amount of time.
was very communicative throughout the entire process. He came by almost every day during the project to check in with his crew and , more importantly, with us. He made certain we were completely happy with the job before the job was considered done. We are thoroughly thrilled with our new yard. We have been able to test our French drain because of the recent rains and everything is working perfectly. We also feel confident that if we have any issues down the road
will stand behind his work. In the future as we maintain our landscaping and, perhaps, add to it, we'll know exactly who to call. This was a great experience!

Why Dig? Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Bypasses the Backhoe

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

Household Sewer Drains

Find solutions to various household sewer problems including drain pipe replacement, using chemical drain cleaners and how to fix a clogged drain.

Angie's Answers


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 San Antonio


I had a sever water leak. I called two plumbers before him and the first plumber said there was no leak. He said the drainage from the rain was going under the house. It was a fast stream, going down my driveway. He did nothing. The second plumber said I had a leak, but he also said I had a foundation problem. He put gravel down and said that would help. He never found the leak. I found
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the publication. He came on Saturday to take a look on assess, it took him 15 minutes to find the leak and diagnose it. He had to go through the concrete to find the pipe. He knew where the leak was, because he is a good plumber. He came on Saturday, he cut old pipe and replaced it, put down concrete. He fixed it and he charged me less than the second plumbers who did nothing. Extremely reasonable rates. He worked for many hours.
- gordon D.

Called the company to speak to someone about ordering a part for me and needed an idea about the price of the part and what they would charge to install. Got an answering service and found out they don't have people in an office. The phone person gets your name and address and sends someone out for an estimate. That's fine and good if you have a plumbing problem, but my issue was just a
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
part on the air conditioning that I could install myself. Never could talk to anyone, and did not need someone out to my house to waste his time and mine. Being new in town, I had never called a company where you could not speak to anyone on the phone! Phone ladies were doing what they were told I guess, but that's sure no way to run a business. Not everything is black and white and not every situation requires someone to appear at your house. Sometimes you just need to engage someone on the phone to determine whether you need help or not and whether they supply the kind of help you need.
- Louise D.

I have been using them several times now for the last 2-3 years. They were very nice and they did it quickly. They have very good things to say about my foundation contractor. They completed their work but some tile work is also required for that. We have to wait until the tile guys finish their part of the job so that the last thing that needs to be done is for
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
to come back tomorrow to verify that nothing has been moved, everything is still fine, and there is no leak after the work has been completed. The price was reasonable. I found them on Angie's List. When they are looking after you instead of just doing their job and reaching out for the payment, when folks have your well being in mind, they fix everything and they work with you a lot easier and they are a lot friendlier. I have worked with contractors for a very long time from a previous job. One of my jobs was to select contractors and so I know when folks are trying to do good work for you and have your best interest in mind. There were some issues that came up and we had to deal with the insurance company and Mr.
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very upset about the response of the insurance company. Apparently he's had the same kind of run-in with the insurance company. I had the owner of the company come out here and sit down and tell me some of his experience. We had several flyers come out and they are the only company that we are using right now.
- Lorenzo G.

I cannot emphasize enough how professional, prompt, courteous and honest
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
was every time I dealt with them. They are licensed, bonded, and insured, and although the mainstay of their business is commercial, they also service residential properties.
Despite not having a dedicated receptionist, they have excellent communication, and will call you back within an hour or two if they couldn't answer the phone due to work.
The properties I called them for are two renovated historic homes, both of which
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
had been the contractor who replaced and updated all the plumbing.
I called them to come out and take a look at the tub faucets, hose bibs, and one of the kitchen sinks. We agreed on a time, and they arrived a few minutes early and went directly to work. They were incredibly honest, and explained that all of the work that needed to be done was covered under their warranty policy, and that everything would be repaired free of charge.
They even replaced the kitchen faucet, which they weren't even responsible for, since the prior owner of the homes had bought them at Ikea.
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed me replacement options, and they ordered, paid for, and installed the new faucet -- which looks strikingly similar, but of much higher quality than my original faucet.
Honestly, I can't believe that a contractor like this isn't already rated on Angie's List. They are very much under appreciated at this point. I would hire them again in an instant, and recommend them to family and friends.
- Kimberlee L.

SO far,so good!! .I called Will plumbing for a second opinion after another company told me they had to break up my double wide concrete driveway to put down a new sewer line.Will found my problem was several feet from cleanout,which they replaced leaving my driveway intact.
- agnes B.

I called them out to take a look at a low spot in my backyard after I saw some standing water during a big rainstorm. A rep came out and gave me a quote for ~2800 for 3 drains and ~60 ft of pipe. I also asked him to quote grading both sides of the house and installing sod ( They said 1.5 pallets but I specifically asked for 2 pallets) over the graded areas as well as where the pipe was going to run. The final quote was $3400.
His folks showed up for the install on time and we discussed the placement of the drains, grading and sod. Even before we had finished discussing the placement, his guys started digging. I was a bit concerned, but he said don't worry he would take care of it and I headed of to work. I get back later that day to see both the drainage and grading completed. When I look at the drainage, I notice that they didn't keep it in a straight line. what I mean by that is, they put the center of the one of the drains in the low spot. The 2 drains ahead of it, instead of keeping in line with the first drain, they went at an angle that put it closer to the house. When I asked why they didn't keep it straight and grade the slope away from the house instead of installing the drains ~2ft from the house, they said that it should work just as well. I let that one go, but when they showed me the sod they installed, i couldn't believe it.. It looked completely brown and dead. I asked him what was going on and he said that this was the only thing available because his normal supplier was out. The guy said don't worry, it will come back after you water it. August in San
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
was brutal and I watered it every day for 2 months and most of it is still dead. He told me that he had to use both the pallets of sod and that if I hadnt asked for him to get 2, it would have cost him a lot since he would have had to come out another day. He also said that he would not charge me for the additional half
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
of grass or installation.
Then they showed me the bill. I had asked him to break it the charges so I could review them. $100 for dump fees (after I asked them put any excess dirt in my planting beds), $750 for materials, $300 for installing 3 catch basin drains, and $1800 to dig a 60'ft trench. 2 pallets of dead sod cost me $260, $200 for installing it and $45 for delivering it for a grand total of $505. He charged me for the extra grass and installation. I asked for a discount on the sod and he said no, it will come in. I asked to see the material costs (how does 3 sections of PVC cost $750?) and he said no. He gave me a $50 discount for Angie's list.
The drain functions properly, but the entire experience was very frustrating. Will never use or recommend them again.

Incredibly dependable, friendly, reliable, and quick. Our favorite technician is "
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
". He has been to our house a couple of times over the few years that we've been living here. He even remembered our specific problems from several months ago. He provided us with the maximum discount possible using our coupons. Our main sewer line was backed up.
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
ran the camera down the line and found roots growing through the pipe. He gladly showed and walked me through the process of what would be required to fix the problem. He gladly wrote me up and estimate, gave me his card, and said that whenever we were ready to proceed to give him a call. We called back about a week later and they were able to schedule
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
to come back out the following morning (only about 12hrs from the time we called). We did not expect them to come out and work through the night, and we certainly didn't expect them to come back out that next day. We were just hoping that they'd be able to come back out within a week. We found this company using Angies list, but wanted to post reviews at every possible site to help everyone out there when they're in need. I'd say if you need any plumbing work done, call these guys, THEY'RE GREAT!!!
- Melissa G.

This is my third review of this provider. I originally found him on Angie's List and used him again because of outstanding service on previous problems. I called on the afternoon of 10/7/13 and requested appointment for the next day.
San Antonio Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived on time with appropriate gear and ready to work. Immediately identified the problems and related issues with pipes and routing. Described recommended solution, quoted fair price, and commenced work. He finished quickly but performed his usual professional work with skill and efficiency. A bonus is that he explains everything he is going to do before he does it in case I have questions or concerns.
