"First of all, the general cost would have been $200, but we just had All-Pro Foundation Repair do some foundation work on our property and they offered to pay $100 of the cost to perform" the leak test. Usually they say you will need to provide the carbon copy of the receipt, but in this case
just took $100 off the price. With All-Pro you have to have a plumbing test and leak repairs done within 30 days to receive the lifetime warranty on the foundation (though they will work with you on this). I first called another company they mentioned and was told they had no openings for nearly a month, then All-Pro referred me to
(which I had already seen on Angie's List).
was also booked solid for another month, but I told them I worked from home and would be available if something opened up. Surprisingly, later that same day they called back and said that something did open up, and asked if an hour from that time would work for me; it did, and they came out. The two men that arrived were quick and efficient. They quickly did something with the overflow pipes outside, then worked with the faucets, attaching a pressure meter of some kind. We waited for 20 minutes, and they said that the fact that it held the high pressure for 20 minutes and didn't reduce, ensured that in fact there were no leaks. They will contact All-Pro and the lifetime warranty should now be validated, then delivered to me.
is the best!

Winter guide

The Angie's List Guide to Winter Maintenance

It's the time of year when the winter weather can take a toll. Follow this winter maintenance checklist to protect your home, your car and your health.

Sometimes bad plumbers aren't this obvious. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Bill M. of Parkville, Mo.)

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.

Heating & A/C, Plumbing

Most homes and apartments used to have steam heat radiators, but they can be noisy. Tired of the whistling, clanging and banging? Here’s how to make it stop.

frozen water, frozen faucet, bad water valve
Plumbing

One of the most common winter home problems is frozen pipes. Warming up the pipes is the easy part, but actually finding where the pipe is frozen can be hard.

copper piping
Plumbing

When temperatures dip below freezing, there's a chance your plumbing pipes could freeze. See if copper or PEX pipes stand up best to winter weather.

If you plan to leave a house vacant for the winter months, it's important to make sure your home is ready for the winter. Here's how to winterize a vacant home.

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.

Showed up on time. Super professional, courteous, well mannered. Wore little booties over his construction boots to protect my home from dirt...which I loved. My main gripe is on the price I was charged. I was in a tough spot: House had 2 toilets. One toilet was completely clogged--second toiled was on the
Anchorage Plumbers Provider Name Locked
of becoming entirely unusable. This was in my elderly father's home and I needed to make sure he had at least one working bathroom. I feel that I was grossly overcharged. Bathroom had a wood floor and when they caulked the new toilet to seal it to the floor, I though the job was done a little sloppily. After a few days the caulk pulled away from the flooring and created the tiniest of gaps in a small section between base of toilet and the wood flooring surrounding waste pipe. Gap was big enough to drop a small stud earring (or even a dime) through. The issue was this: When you pay over $3000 for any type of service, you expect the execution to be flawless. I did not find it flawless. I have no doubt that if I called them back they would have re-caulked free of charge --- but I was so upset with myself that I actually paid so much money for what seemed like a pretty basic job. I didn't want to deal with the company anymore. I felt like a fool for not calling a second plumber to get a better price. Other than the sloppy caulking and the price, I think they do pretty good work. Toilets worked perfectly after they completed the job. Customer service was excellent. I didn't like the toilet seat they placed on the new toilet and they sent me a check for $30 so I could pick out my own toilet seat. My bad experience with this company may be mostly my fault---because I agreed to pay that price before they started the work. But again, I was in a tough spot.
Another thing: They plumber noticed when he was clearing the waste pipe that the home had a lead water main leading into the house. Told me the lead pipe should be replaced and it was a "$10,000 job". I eventually replaced the lead water main with a different company and the entire project cost about $3400 (which included breaking through the concrete driveway and pouring new concrete.)

Even though replacing my antique garbage disposal was not an emergency,

went about the business of removing the old unit and installing the new disposal very quickly. Since my old unit did not have an opening on the bottom to use a "key" to unstick the mechanism, he spent some time making sure I was comfortable with how to use it safely. He was meticulous about the clean-up around the area..
He inquired if I had any other plumbing issues while he was at my home, and was very professional and friendly.
