"They showed up the same day I called, gave me a $10 Angies List discount and cleared 100 feet of waste line. When the waste line backed up again the next month," they came back and found another clog beyond the original clog. Again they showed up the same day that I called and because it was a "re-run" there was no charge. Amazing service at a fair price. Very prompt and courteous.

"They used cheap parts and they did not check their work so it started leaking right after they left. They also tracked in mud on our carpets. Did not apologize for what happened.

It's a good idea to get to know a good plumber before you have a plumbing emergency. Also, watch out for these red flags of possible plumbing-related scams.

Angie's List member Ronald C. of Roseville, Mich., had to install a new drain pipe after tree roots grew into the old pipe forming a clog.

Plumbing, Plumbing - Drain Cleaning

Does your toilet gurgle? Are you hearing a "glug glug" sound? Have it checked out; a noisy toilet often signals a blockage in your residential plumbing system.

Angie's Answers

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.

The simple answer is ,"No!" The only way to effectively clean grease and scum from a drain line (or a neighborhood, jk) is with high pressured water. The machine they use is called a Jetter, many drain cleaning companies have them.
?
Do you know the age of the existing valve?  Are you sure the existing valve is a ball valve and not a gate valve?  Gate valves notoriously fail after prolonged periods of being either open or shut.  The rubber washer breaks down or gets mineral build up on it and then it won't shut off.  Whether the valve is bad or not it's a lot cheaper to replace it while he's got the area dug up and working on those connections than having him return to dig it up and pull it all back apart again due to a leaking valve.  The valve will run around $20 and the pipe isn't much either (price depends on the type of pipe).  Labor is an few minutes so he likely isn't charging you any more in labor costs to put the new valve in than he would to do the rest of the work anyway.

Like Vern said, he has a minimum amount he has to charge to cover his costs and still make money.  Being a contractor of any sort is not cheap with all of the government regulation, higher fuel costs, tool costs, etc.  It probably costs him at least $200 a day just to be in business if he's a self employed independent.  More for someone with a shop and answering service, etc.  Most plumbers around here are going to charge at least $100/hour with a minimum charge.  It'll probably take him 2-3 hours to install everything so he's really not out of line.  You might be able to find someone a little cheaper but check their reputations.

Soso. When they got here, they wanted to give me a big pitch of what all they could do and it was expensive. When I indicated I wanted to think about it and not sign the contract right away, the guy became real rushed and indicated he wanted to leave.

They have been out for us a few different times. Everything was good with them. The first time they came out to repair the shut offs for my washer and dryer. I also then had them put in a bigger water heater. I have used them also for power jetting out my drain system. They have done a good job and I would use them again.

Service called ahead of time to notice me of the delay in scheduled service; about 30 minutes. The technician worked for about 1½ hours. His progress was blocked about 30 ft. in due to massive roots in the pipe. He pulled some out but could not continue. Another technician came in for a camera inspection and offered solutions such as high pressure sewer jet and trenchless sewer repair. Both of the technicians were very nice and took time to explain the situation. I asked for an estimate to be sent by E-mail, but I never received it.

He was finished in 20 minutes, which means that he charged $150 for a 20 minute job. I asked him for an detailed invoice in which he then wrote parts of $70 not the $60 he quoted 20 minutes earlier. Even during his repair and after he kept looking at his phone for the next job he was going to and even told us how big that job was going to be. When I questioned him why so much for the labor, even at an hourly rate of $150 which is high, he said that they charge per job and not the time involved - that they have a lot of trucks that they have to pay for. I paid him and contacted the supervisor

, who stated that they charge by the job and that's it. Buyers beware of companies who give "free" estimate. The plumber, in this case, came out, gave a very high price making it sound like a big job and if you question the high price, they do not hesitate to drop it to make it look as though one is getting a good deal if you do it right now. This may be not a large amount of money, but on percentage basis, I figure that I overpaid by more than 30%. From now on, I will use

We called

on a hot water heater issue late one evening and described the problem. He said he could come out the next morning, but said "B, you are handy. here is the likely problem and by doing XXX you could fix it" He was right of course and it took me about 15 minutes (and no cost) to do the repair. Another time one of our tenants called to say there was no hot water. He sent someone out a couple of hours after contact and replaced the malfunctioning part and sent me a bill that was way below what one of the big guys would have charged. GAs leak at one of our condos, immediate response and repair.
