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 Cleaning reviews in Wilmington


Konstantin is exacting in his work although he may not be the cheapest. Given the size of the project, he also used subcontractors to complete various portions of the work. As in any major project, there are areas that do not go as planned. What we look for is if the contractor listens and makes things right and works with the homeowner well. In this regard, Konstantin is excellent and while he may not be the cheapest, we found that he really wanted to get the work done properly. The best example of this was that the subcontractor he utilized for tiling the bathrooms was adequate but not an expert. The end product was OK but not as professional as it should have been but not worthy of tearing out and starting over. We expressed the need for a change before moving on to the backsplash in the kitchen. Konstantin found a real tile craftsman for our kitchen work that was very exacting and did an awesome job. While in hindsight, we wish that tile contractor had been available to perform all of the time work, we greatly appreciate Konstantin finding a better contractor and absorbing the cost of the labor for the kitchen backsplash given the bathroom tile was not as professional. In short, he did his best to make the situation correct and listened to us. The remainder of the project included tear out, changing a tub to a shower, building shelving in pantry areas, installing pocket doors, doing the electrical work, refinishing hardwood floors, drywall work including moving walls, painting and finish work on trim, etc. We were very pleased with the results of the overall project and working with Konstantin.
- Matthew M.

Our original appointment had to be rescheduled. He called with more than enough notice, apologized profusely for the delay and having to reschedule, as the job he was working was taking longer than expected. He arrived promptly on the reschedule day, was very personable and worked quickly. It's been almost two weeks and we haven't had a back up in the drain -fantastic job! Thank you so much!
- Tim S.

We were referred to

by another plumber who was not able to solve our concern. We had sewer gas venting into the house and needed a smoke test to determine the location. A very polite and professional gentleman arrived on time for the appointment. However due to way our septic system was set up, the test could not be done and we were discussing a date for rescheduling; this was not their fault. Before agreeing on a new date, the gentleman asked if he could look at the entire system, including the attic. Within a few minutes he found the problem. He had the tools and parts with him and was able to make the repair, something that had been missed by another plumber.
Although the smoke test would have revealed the problem, his persistence

is awesome. He answers phone calls and texts quickly. Shows up when he says he will and is ready to go straight to work. For the improper tub installation I asked him to fix:

responded to the plastic pipes breaking under my sink. Again - he asked me to take a picture so he could come prepared - showed up with what he needed and went right to work. He showed me what else was wrong (which I already knew) then proceeded to fix it all. I watched him this time and he was very careful to keep the area neat and clean. His workmanship is superior too. Note - this repair was done on a Saturday morning and again, the price was very reasonable.

The plumber found that the fix was going to be more complicated than expected. The suggestion was made that I buy a new faucet, which they would come back and install. That's what we did, and the problem's solved. They were quick and responsive. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends.

is great and we are definitely recommending him and using him in the future.

The service technician was dispatched within two hours of contacting this company. Same day service! He performed the service in a professional manner and was a pleasure to deal with. He even adjusted my problematic flapper valve chain for me. Works like new. He finished the job, cleaned the area and was on his way in less than an hour. I highly recommend this company.
