"Mr.
and his crew are a very friendly, capable and professional group of plumbers. The job was completed on the promised date and time and" to my satisfaction. The new toilet equipment supplied and installed by them has been working satisfactorily since its' installation. They were punctual, came on the agreed date and during the indicated time slot. All their recommendations relating to other plumbing issues at my home were good, and Mr.
did not make any attempt to exploit my problems for his business benefit. /

"I noticed a slight dip in water pressure after the install. I plan to reach out to them to have a look. But I am satisfied that they will give me a great customer" service experience. There is a need depending on where you live to have the job certified by San
inspector. React Fast plumbing does not have any control over the schedule, but
did a great job keeping me in the loop as she tried to coordinate this for me. Definitely will use them again for any of my plumbing needs.

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.

Fireplaces, Chimney Sweep, Plumbing

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.

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.

took my call late in the evening and came the next morning, on time. He also helped me shut off the water over the phone as I texted him pictures of the pipes - which saved me an entire night of mopping! He fixed a burst pipe and I had heat and hot water in a few hours. I wouldn't hesitate to call him again since he is knowledgeable, prompt and most importantly - fixed the problem quickly.

Plumbing was courteous.
Also, I really have no "Overall" rating because no work was done. However, your review forced me to pick a grade anyway to complete this review. So I picked "Bad" because I was surprised by the high expense of large company work in California.

The water heater has a 10 year warranty and the water heater is only 3.5 years old. While I was on the phone,

said he would do the job for $399.00. I asked him how hard it would be to change out the gas valve? He said it was very technical. I told him the part would be here in the morning. He informed me that either he or another tech would be doing the job. I was to call Amber the next day to schedule. I called the next day and Amber told me that no one would be able to get to me until tommorow. I did not want my wife to go another day with out hot water so I told Amber I am going to have to call another plumber. To make a long story short I was told from a friend that

was responsive in getting our water tank replaced and was willing to accommodate on timing since we needed to plow and shovel snow in order to get him access; he cleaned after his work and removed old tank; and all for very reasonable cost. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to others.

the technician got a lot done in a relatively short amount of time (~5 hours) and we were very happy with the quality level of his work. I appreciate that he listened to our issues and worked with me to solve some challenging problems we were facing, and that he made sure to double-check with his management on keeping within building codes so that I feel secure that we've done work correctly and safely.

When I found a leaking pipe in my basement I knew I needed a professional in a hurry but didn't have a relationship with any local plumbers. I called
Valparaiso Plumbers Provider Name Locked
at 10:00am and explained the problem and was told someone could be to my house that morning. My expectations were exceeded when I got a call back in 15 minutes to let me know that the plumber had finished his previous job and was on the way.
Valparaiso Plumbers Provider Name Locked
arrived as promised, quickly diagnosed the problem and provided what I believed to be a reasonable estimate. He got to work right away and was quick, professional, and courteous. By 11:30 he was cleaning up and what I believed would be a day(s) long ordeal was already solved and in the past! He had replaced the problematic length of pipe, refilled the system, and bled out the air already. I would use their services again and recommend them to friends.
