"I am so very pleased with the work completed. I bought this house not too long ago. It's amazing how many issues can be missed! On all four corners of the" foundation, there were large pieces of concrete that had broken off under the brick. After being fixed, I can't tell that it was ever broken. He did an excellent job of tuckpointing some areas of the brick that I did not notice needing repair. I had a large crack in a basement wall going sideways and about halfway in the eight foot tall wall. He told me that it was caused by too much pressure from the ground being too wet outside. He said the pressure from outside was pushing against the concrete wall and the crack would continue to grow larger and eventually leak. He installed new french drain outside to divert water away from the foundation and then sealed the crack in the interior basement wall. I am so totally pleased I can use the wood
in the basement. The first time I tried it, smoke filled the basement! It turns out the original clay flue liner was broken but the chimney was completely blocked by soot! It was just a matter of time it would have caught fire. I am pleased that all of my questions were answered politely and to the point. They didn't try to sell me services that were not needed. Everything was carefully explained to me on each of the repairs that needed to be made and why it needed to be done. The guys were always friendly and showed up on time. When everything was complete, I couldn't even tell that they were even there to begin with! They cleaned up any mess that the job created. I have high regards and highly recommend
to anyone who needs to have work done. I will definitely hire them again in the future!

and his crew were great to work with. It started with the bid.
called and said he would be at our house at 1:00" p.m. on a Saturday, and he was there right on time. He provided us a very fair bid to build one retaining wall in our back yard. When that was completed (on time) we asked him to build another wall for us. His crew showed up on time and were extremely nice and professional. They cleaned up at the end of each day their work was amazing. We then asked for a third wall in our driveway because his work was so good. He even went beyond what was required by fixing our driveway surface and some drainage issues we had in the back yard. I would hire
back again in a heart beat.

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.

When asked to describe suspect problem and quote to a friend who was en route, the Technician said he would not do so.

We live on a lake and there is a walking path out behind our house and our yard and many others in this neighborhood do not drain well at all! We have 2 German

dogs and every time it even rained a small bit we had to wipe them down with not only a towel but a wet towel first to get all the mud off of them. It came to be where we would dread letting out dogs go outside. They also are very active and like to run. Our yard became a mud pit, no grass just mud from where they ran (which was every where).

is not a contractor that just tells his guys what to do and then leaves. He was here doing the work with them 98% of the time and if he wasn't here he was going to get some supplies. I have to state how very impressed we were with his knowledge and work. Our backyard now drains like a dream and has literally changed our lives! Our dogs go out all of the time and come in with just slightly damp paws, even when it is actively raining! We did have to have

Unfortunately my 65 yr old sewer line had cracked in 2 places. The new 5 inch line was done via a trenchless method from my basement under my porch and tied in to the main sewer line 15 feet below grade. They dug one trench at my sidewalk, 15 feet down. The trench required digigng between the street gas main and street water main.
The new sewer line was installed in one 8hr day. The site was back filled and leveled and compacted with new gravel.
All work was done quickly and in a professional manor. Basically no down time for me. I used my bathroom later that day.

The first day six workers showed up on time. Each Worker knew just what to do. The second day four Workers showed up to patch the holes. They did such a good job we would never know there were holes. No messes were left. More than what we asked for was added to our home improvements and not charged. The cost was more than fair. This is the third time we have used

reconfigured the dryer vent - he added an extension to the low lying dryer vent and attached it to the brick wall. It looks artistic. Once the pipes were installed and covered with fabric, they spread topsoil and grass seeds and mushroom manure on areas that they worked on AND beyond. There was a sad patch of grass by the driveway that the crew was kind enough to add topsoil and grass seeds. Also, they had to haul some plants and shrubs with

's permission I added some of my yard debris onto the truck to be hauled away. Upon my request, the crew neatly piled the leftover topsoil and mushroom manure and the side of the driveway .
