"They were very nice, showed up on time, and did the work. It was inexpensive. The tub unclogging went quickly and well. The faucet replacement did not go as well." I discovered after they left that they did not do whatever caulking or puttying needed beneath the faucet to prevent water from leaking into the sink cabinet below when we spill onto the backsplash under/behind the faucet. Also, less than a year later, the sprayer housing has come loose. To be fair, I should have called them back to fix this problem, and I did not.

-Margo S.

"The company was very responsive -- I had a large backup causing minor flooding. The company sent a serviceman to my home within 24 hours. The gentleman stayed" approx. 3 hours. At first, he had trouble isolating the problem, but eventually was able to get through. A camera was not used, although that was part of the big deal. I learned that my pipe's connection to the town's main sewer lines can get easily blocked. Therefore, I will call this company about every 6 months to come out and make sure all is clear.

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.

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.

Drain Cleaning reviews in Metairie


This was a difficult blockage in main drain. When running the dishwasher or running water in the sink, waste water would bubble up in the tub drain. This house is a slab ranch in N. Framingham, which means they had to go through the toilet to use their device to clear the blockage. They were prompt and professional, and kept at it until the drain was cleared. In this case it took some time.
I would hire them again, for sure; and recommend them anytime.
- Clare C.

On Friday morning my kitchen sink began backing up. I purchased my current home 6 six months ago and the kitchen sink has no garbage disposal. When I tried to use a plunger to unclogg the drain, items began coming up that should not have been put down the drain, coffee stirrer, etc. I immediately called a local plumber who said he would come later in the afternoon. An hour later while an out-of-town guest was using the shower while another guest was using the 2nd bathroom, a toilet wouldn't flush and the sink filled with dirty water. I called the local plumber to explain that the problem was far worse than initially thought. I was told it was beyond his ability to handle. It was now 1pm on a Friday. I began calling plumbers as this was an emergency.

solved the problem. The additional cost of $50 was due to the extra time to clean up the mess that was all over my laundry room floor, but it was well worth it.

and his colleague were the utmost professionals, even after being covered in grease and other nasty "stuff" that was in the sewer line. The stopped line was due to loads and loads of kitchen grease that the previous owner had poured down the kitchen drain. Who does that? By 5PM I had a fully operational plumbing system and my two out-of-town guests and I were free to live normally in my home. If I have any future plumbing needs, I'll be calling

I called and left a message.
Metairie Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
returned my call quickly and offered to try and fit me in soon if it was an emergency. It was not so we scheduled out about 1 1/2 weeks. He arrived at the scheduled time and had the part that needed replacing in stock so he was able to make the repair right away. He was prepared and efficient. He was polite enough to check if it was ok before turning off the water to make the repair. The previous guy I had in for an estimate just shut it off without checking with me first. The shower works great now. HIs price was also $23 dollar less than the other guy who provided an estimate. My neighbors had highly recommended him and now I do to.

Great -- The company we have used in the past wanted a fortune for a Saturday visit but only had one service man on call --- and he was booked solid. Called us back late in the day to say his only main line snapped at customer call and could not come now until Monday. I went to Angie's list and found Any Sewer or Drain LLC listed as 7 day service and called. The owner was on another call and late for a friend's wedding. Asked if he could come to our home Sunday morning instead. We would be his first call on Sunday and I agreed immediately -- he promised to call by 10 am on Sunday - and he did ! He kept all his promises. Called, came, cleared the sewer line of roots; showed us pictures of the wedding with his girl and left to go on to the next customer. A life-saver and he didn't try "rip us off" with regard to the price - even though it was a weekend call.

Arrived on-time. Used drop cloth to protect the floor, and was generally careful and clean while onsite. Tried several different methods to clear the clog but was unsuccessful. Did not charge anything for the service call since he was unable to resolve the issue.
