"...1st floor they rodded out a toilet that was always backing up .... on the second floor, 1st toilet they put in a new wax ring and a pull up valve in the tank," 2nd toilet they put in a pull up valve also ....they also replaced a toilet handle (not sure in which toilet) I had to call them back once as there was not enough water pressure to flush the toilet correctly. I thought the price was a little high since I had purchased a $49.00 service call and also had a $100.00 credit toward the repair bill. I would of been overall happier if the price was not that high and feel somehow I did not get the $100.00 credit... I thought somewhere in the 300's would of been more reasonable and that would be the reason that maybe I would not call them back again.

"All the work, including the initial estimate was done by one master plumber from start to finish. Plumber explained everything very clearly and patiently, including" why the installation would take 2 days. The plumber was very skilled, very knowledgable and very neat. The finished product was nothing short of outstanding.

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.

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.

Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

Food you shouldn't put in the garbage disposal

If you notice water leaking from your shower, finding the cause can take some time. Learn how to trace the source and save some cash.

Plumbing

So you're in the bathroom minding your own business when you notice, ahem, seepage around the base of the toilet. It's not human error, but an issue with the john. The good news: It could be a relatively simple, inexpensive fix.

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.

Company rep showed up right on time with all hardware and supplies. Wall needed to be sawed through and I was advised of process throughout. Work was neat and service was highly professional. I have used this business a number of times over the past few months for both electrical upgrades and plumbing fixture replacements and in all cases work was done in a timely, professional manner.

came to our house on a Saturday to inspect our hot water heater that went out. He not only arrived promptly on a Saturday morning, he informed my husband and I about each step of his inspection. He even showed us where the exhaust was disconnected allowing carbon monoxide to fill our garage. Since the unit was less than 3 years old he encouraged us to call the manufacturer (replacement part wouldn't be in for another 5 days-No hot water for 5days!!) The benefits in replacing our particular unit out weighed keeping it. By six o'clock that night we had hot water with a terrific guarantee.

was very personable, professional, and an expert. He taught us about hot water heaters and connections, and how to maintain the unit We were very fortunate he corrected the gas leak and replaced or unit within the same day. Thank you so much.

is a wonderful plumber. A pipe broke in my garage. My husband asked
Stamford Plumbers Provider Name Locked
if he could come and fix it on Wednesday, and he said that he could. He came on time. Working very hard, he found the rupture. He had to cut the drywall to find the leak, and he did a very neat job. The area was clean after he finished. I have used him many times, and he is always nice to deal with and professional. He is very reliable. I hope to use him until he retires.

They were great. Sewer line had been backing up periodically in the basement and I knew it would be a problem eventually. Scoping revealed numerous roots. Big job and big yard and big older 1920 home. As luck would have it the sewer line ran to the street the longest way possible and down a big landscaped yard but they did a great job. It looked frightening for a day or two but in the end you couldn't tell anything had been done. They even worked around the yard sprinkler system. I only gave them a B on the price cause it was a lot of money but I have no idea what others would have charged as I went with them cause I knew they would do it right.
Stamford Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was great and the plumber exceptional. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. I only did the new water line due to the age of my home and thought why not replace it while they are there.
