"Although the guy who worked out of the
of his car and said he did some plumbing once gave us a slightly better price, we decided to go ahead" and use Mr.
for some necessary extensive repairs to some water pipes that had frozen and burst. Mr.
was professional and thorough and explained clearly what was needed and what he was providing, providing us with a high level of comfort with his services. I would highly recommend him and would not have the slightest hesitation in using him again.

"The guy came to our rental house and tried to snake the bathroom sink. He was unsuccessful getting the drain unclogged. My husband and the plumber went to the basement" to look at the pipes. He then proceeded to tell my husband that all the pipes needed to be replaced from the bathroom sink to the stack. My husband was surprised then to hear that they would charge us $1200.00... His unwillingness to try and snake the drain other position in the pipe system was unacceptable. My husband called me while I was at work and we decided we needed to call for a second option. After being charged $125.00 and paying him $100.00 ($25.00 off coupon) We called another company from Angies List, and the very next day a team of two guys came and snaked the drain in fifteen minute - a success.. We called
to speak with the manager, left a message and did not hear back. We will NEVER use them again...

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.

& Air Conditioning, Inc. should be a shame to have Affordable anywhere in the Companies’ name. I received a high estimate of $1300.00 for replacement and labor of the water heater. Asked if I could get a 10% military discount due to the fact I am a retired military officer. I was told no, but could get a 10% discount because I used

List. After the work was done I was contacted by Mr.
Marion Plumbers Provider Name Locked
that the job was done and he would send the invoice. I said OK and inquired about the 10% discount and was told that I could not get the discount because they had to replace a pipe. I received two different invoices directly via email from Mr.
Marion Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, one which was just totally unprofessional and scribbled on an invoice with a $60.00 service fee and just a $1300.00 total with no itemization what so ever. I asked for an itemized invoice. Mr.
Marion Plumbers Provider Name Locked
stated that was all I was getting and all I needed. After going back and forth a couple of times I received an itemized invoice for $1300.00 which included the cost of the aforementioned pipe. So basically he would not give me as promised the 10% discount but also charged $120.00 for the pipe. Additionally I was charged $590.00 plus $75.00 delivery for a water heater that I could have purchased for approximately $337.00 to $400.00 which I told Mr.
Marion Plumbers Provider Name Locked
I could do if he couldn’t give me a 10% discount. I assume he gets his water heaters even cheaper than that because of bulk purchases. I was also charged $400.00 for labor. Had this same work done in another house in another state and was charged $200.00 labor. Trying to be fair, I refused to pay the total without the %10 discount. Mr.

made a number of threatening phone calls about going to court which I requested each time to please initiate court procedures which he never did. I eventually had to contact him and ask for his lawyer. After going through Mr.

This guy is amazing. I called
Marion Plumbers Provider Name Locked
at 9pm on Sunday night, and even though we had no prior relationship he answered the phone and spent 20+ minutes talking me through a plumbing emergency. He was patient, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. He didn't make me feel like I was bothering him at all. He was so good that I didn't need to hire him for this particular job, but he will be the first person I call next time I need a plumber.

At first things were kind of rocky but after I expressed my dissatisfaction with what turned out to be a new employee, the company's owner came out and made things right. I would hire this company again. If you have any issues the Owner will make it right. It was apparent to me that he takes a great deal of pride in his business and in ensuring that customers are satisfied and get what they deserve.

arrived on time, explained what he was going to do and did it in 45 minutes. He cut off the old shut off valve, turned the main water off at the street and replaced the valve with a quarter turn ball valve. Works great. I was very impressed with his expertise and professionalism. Will use

came over within an hour of my phone call at 9pm on a cold winter night. I had been waiting on another plumber for several hours who said they'd be there that night.
The pipe burst was very visible and and easy fix, so he only charge $250 the emergency service fee. It is a bit steeper than some other good plumbers, but

is worth it.
He also recommended a electrician to install a heater in our storage unit to prevent future pipe bursts.

arrived on time and assessed the situation, got supplies he needed, and neatly and professionally installed the electric box in an unobtrusive place at the front of my house. He gave me estimates for other electrical work that I would like to have done in the future.

from the minute i got on the phone to book an appointment i knew i was headed in the right direction with this company.
the plumber/estimator arrived, listened to my problem (a water heater, not pipes, that banged continually). he measured the psi from the water main to my house and it was 100psi and he explained that 60psi was better. said he would send an estimate by email and he did the next day.
it was a bit more than expected but going through his item by item price it seemed fair. in the end it was lt was about $300 less. he had estimated 2 men for 3 hrs and it ended up 1 man for 3 hrs.
the plumber who did the work was very nice, considerate, on time, and knew his stuff. he even tried to cut the time to 2 hrs but did 3 hrs to make sure the work was good. he even found a slight leak and fixed it.
