"Had hired them in the past for new water heater and new gas line to dryer. I hired them to install water-powered backup sump pump that I purchased. They did a great" job and the system works great! Independent discharge. they could not use the pex supply as planned but provided copper supply without additional cost. Needed attention to detail, quality install, adherence to manufacturer specs, etc. ...got it. Will definitely hire again.

"Purchased the Angie's List deal after verifying that the provided toilet would fit in my limited space -
answers the phones and schedules" for
, and she was amazingly responsive, informed, and friendly. I asked a bunch of questions and received prompt answers/callbacks every time. We came to an agreement on the install time/date, and
ran a little late because of an emergency he had to handle. He ended up only being a few minutes late, but
called well ahead of time to let me know his ETA. When he arrived, he was efficient in his work, friendly, and very thorough. He even spread out a drop cloth across the areas between the bathroom and doorway.
offered to and installed a part I purchased myself, even though he could've charged to do so. It was a relatively
installation, but nice that he did so. The toilet itself was a very good brand (
) -- he could've gone with a far cheaper toilet as part of this deal to increase his own profit, but didn't do so -- as a result we're very happy with it!

How to Avoid Common Plumbing Scams

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.

The average U.S. family uses 127,000 gallons of water per year. That's hard on your wallet and the world. Using low-flow fixtures and appliances can save you up to 40,000 gallons a year and 30 percent on your water bill. Check out which appliances and fixtures make the biggest difference and remember that saving water saves you money.

First - NOT full septic tank - if that was the case you would be getting backup of sewage into the lowest drains in the house, and possible very slow flushing or refusal to drain out of the bowl - the opposite of your case.

Second - I assume you are the owner. If a renter or on a lease, this type of problem may be the responsibility of your landlord, depending on the terms of your lease or rental agreement.

OK - two possible situations here - low water in BOWL, or low water in TANK. I am assuming your toilet flushes OK, with adequate water to clean out the bowl, and that it is a typical type toilet with a tank sitting on the back of the bowl. If this is not the case and it is a designer toilet or looks like those at public restrooms (no tank), then the BOWL answers still apply if it is initially refilling OK, but if not enough refill water coming in at all then call a plumber.

First, low water in the toilet BOWL case. If the water in the toilet BOWL is low after flushing, I see four likely causes, in order of most likelihood -

1) the fill valve is not putting enough water into the toilet bowl. If you take the top off the tank, you will see a small hose (typically black plastic) coming from the fill valve (a vertical mechanism, usually at left side of tank, that the incoming water tube or flex hose connects to the bottom of on the bottom side of the tank). While the tank is refilling after a flush, a steady but not large flow of water flows through this fill tube and down into a vertical pipe or tube (usually brass or plastic and about 3/4 inch diameter, which stands almost full height of tank). The small tube puts water into this pipe, from where it flows into and refills the toilet bowl. This is also the overflow tube, which keeps the tank from overflowing if the fill valve fails to shut off. If the fill valve has a problem or the fill tube has a blockage, it may not be letting enough water into the bowl. Also, check the tube is actually pointed down into the overflow tube - if the clip came loose, rusted away or broke, then it may just be filling the toilet tank rather than the bowl. Check that a steady flow (will not be a real foreceful jet) of water is flowing out of this tube into the overflow pipe while the toilet tank is refilling. You should also see the bowl filling up at this time. If it come in but does not fill high enough because it does not run long enough, some fill valves have an adjustment - check fill valve manufacturer website for instructions. Others just have to be replaced - doable if you are handy at home repairs (see web videos on how to do it), or call a plumber for probably about $150-200 to replace fill valve (have him replace the flapper valve at same time if you get this done).

2) there is something like a rag or string caught in the trap (the waste passage within the toilet body itself) which is slowly wicking the bowl water down the drain - would be solved by a good snaking. If this is the case, the bowl will fill fully after flushing, but then slowly (typically many minutes to hours) drain down to just filling the start of the oval or round drain passageway where the waste passage starts to curve up into the toilet body.

3) blocked sewer vent pipe (which vents sewer gas and lets air into the sewer system so when you flush the traps in drains and toilets and such do not get sucked dry by the vacumn caused by the exiting flow. If this is the problem, then several drains in your house may have the same problem, or drain slowly. When you flush, the water will drain totally down the pipe and almost all the water in the bowl and trap will go down the drain too, typically with a gurgling sound for a few seconds at the end as the air seal is broken in the trap, then a small amount of water will flow back from the trap into the bowl, leaving you with water in the entrance curve to the trap but nowhere near normal height in the bowl - maybe not even enough to fill the entrance of the drain passage.

4) a crack in the toilet, letting water gradually leak out of the bowl onto the floor or into the subfloor. If this has been going on for long at all you should see water on the floor, or water coming out in the ceiling downstairs, or in the basement or crawl space under the toilet.

Case 2 - the problem is low water in the toilet TANK - since this is a sudden problem, two likely causes:

1)  the float arm has corroded or the float setting has moved. Look in tank for any broken part. You may have a black ball on the end of a metal or plastic arm connected to the fill valve (which is the part, normally at the left side of the tank, that the flexible or copper tubing comes into at the bottom of the tank), or it may be a sliding cylindrical float that slides up and down on the fill valve (typically all plastic) - see if it is broken or loose or alll corroded up (for the arm type). When you flush, this float hangs down (if lever type) or slides down the fill valve (cylinder type), opening the fill valve so fresh water comes in to fill the tank and bowl. As the tank fills it lifts this float, till at the proper elevation the bouyancy of the float shuts off the fill valve. If the setting on this float has changed then it will either cause the toilet to "run" continually because it is trying to overfill the tank (float shuts off at too high a level, so water is continuously flowing down into the overflow tube and into the bowl); or it will shut off too soon, causing only a partial tank fill. There are adjustments to adjust the float shutoff setting - typically an adjustment xxxx on the arm-type, and a slider stop clip on a small rod for the sliding type. See web videos on how to adjust this, or call a plumber.

2) your flapper valve (in bottom of tank, the part a chain or cord or rod connects to the flush handle, which opens it when you flush the toilet, leaks. If it leaks AND the fill valve is working, the tank level drops till the fill valve opens, then the tank refills. This repeats at intervals, with the tank refilling periodically even though it has not been flushed. May need new flapper valve or just a good wiping of the sealing surface to remove grit that is causin it to leak. If this is the problem you will have a slight flow of water into the bowl continually, and will probably see a slight ripple in the toilet bowl.

3) water is leaking out of the fittings or bolt holes on the bottom of the tank. If this is happening enough to make you notice low takn water level, the tank will refill periodically the same as if the flapper valve is leaking, plus you will have water on the floor and dripping off the bottom of the tank.

 

Fill valve and flapper valves each cost around $15 if you do it yourself (you can buy just replacement flapper for less if that is the problem and the matching seal is good, but that is rarely the case). A plumber call to replace both probably $150-200, ASSUMING your water shutoff valve (at the wall, under the tank, with a flex or copper tube coming fromit up to the toilet tank) will work.. If it will not shut off the flow of water, then add another $50-150 to replace that, depending on how it is plumbed and whether he has to cut into the wall to replace it (rarely required). If you do go and have a plumber do it, have both the fill valve and flapper valve (and flush handle, if aluminum or brass and corroded) replaced at the same time, as all tend to go out with age - every 10 years or so. You don't want to have to call the plumber to replace another part in just a year or two.

?

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!

Had them come out to do a few plumbing jobs. Emailed them a list and they emailed back with a day and time that we accepted. They arrived in time frame and looked at what needed to be done. They divided up the work and finished it all. They did have to get one part from the store. They also recommended that I get new tubs as they had noticed many cracks when fixing the drain. We will be doing that next. We had previously used them to fix a toilet.very personable and efficient.

I am very pleased with my decision to call this company. I am impressed with
Fouke Plumbers Provider Name Locked
who scheduled my appt- she worked hard to get me an appt that would minimize my time away from work(7am next day), then called back later the same day to say that she had someone who could come later that same day (after I was home from wk!). She asked how I had found them and when I said Angies List she asked "book? or online?" I said online but that I had a book I thought. She told me they had a better coupon ($25) in the book than the online discount of $15! She didn't have to do that, but she DID. She told me she'd call me back to let me know when the plumber was on his way, but I never got that call. This was my only 'neutral' part of the experience.

showed up with a smile and good attitude at 5:40 pm and went straight to assessing my issues with the toilet. We discussed prices and options, and he stressed he would always try to repair if possible. He never tried to 'upsell' me which I appreciated. He replaced my fillvalve, took care of a leak on the waterline to the tank, then addressed a small leak at the whole house turnoff valve. He checked the pressure coming into my house and we discussed a possible future upgrade of my pressure regulator. He did give me a quote on that if I chose to pursue it in the future. He was done in an hour, worked quickly, cleaned up after himself and was professional from beginning to end.

definitely met my expectations. Great customer service- I was given a quote over the phone. The plumber was here on time and was courteous and professional. Removed my old water heater and installed a new, larger one. The work was done under permit and it passed city inspection without any issues. The best part?

The appointment time was scheduled between 11am-1pm and conveniently
Fouke Plumbers Provider Name Locked
arrived shortly after 11am which was very much appreciated. As most customers know the window of time is usually 3-4 hours spread and most likely the contractor arrives towards the tail end or runs late. So having the contractor arrive at the front end of the time window was great as I had many other errands to take care of. I bought the $68 service call/inspection special deal, however, I wasn't interested in the full plumbing inspection. I only wanted the service call and repair. The service call for $68 did not include parts, which I fully understood and the repair took about an hour which was a great value for $68, plus (2) double valve replacements. A bit pricey for $100, but a value none the less, because I didn't have to go to Lowes/Home Depot and buy something I wasn't certain what I needed for the repair? So for me time and travel expenses were saved and worth the cost of the parts. Also, there were no surprises, rather just good old fashioned service and
Fouke Plumbers Provider Name Locked
delivered. I would highly recommend Next Plumbing. NOTE & WORD TO THE CUSTOMER: The $68 deal offered on Angies List does not include a whole house repair for $68! It does entitle you to a service call fee of what translates to 1 hour work of plumbing repair, but does not includes parts. Still a great value!
