"They were wonderful and the price was competitive. The work was excellent, they were very informative and actually gave us more than we asked for but it was really good. They cleaned" up the area, they were above and beyond of what you'd expect, it looked totally neat when they left. They came right out when they said they would.

"Everything went well. They are busy so I did have to wait about 2 months for them to start, but it is finally in. I noticed an instant difference in the soil around the one side of" my house. I did not have pooling water, but the area was very misquito infested and always damp. Now it is much drier, the water is being redirected. I have used them 3 times now and I know that they stand behind their work.

"I met with
and walked the property together several time before work began to go over all the details. During the initial meeting we identified all the work" that I wanted to be done, and broke it down into phases. This review reflects "Phase 1" of that work, which while improved the look of our yard dramatically, I describe as mostly foundational, or functional, work. The initial estimate I received from
seemed fair and we decided to proceed with the work. He laid out a time line for the work and did not deviate from that. All the work was completed on time. He and his team arrived promptly every day around 8:00 and would work well into the evening, departing usually between 5:00 and 6:00 pm. He always cleaned up the area as much as could be expected for an active work site. Once the project began
discovered the initial amount estimated work for the side yard drainage would not be adequate, and instead of just going with the plan, he brought it to my attention, and he addressed the issue. Even though this cost more, he was willing to work with me on the pricing so as to not completely blow out his initial estimate. I found his pricing to be extremely transparent and am very pleased in that respect. Overall,
is a professional. He and his crew are hard workers. They are punctual, respectful, and do quality work. That combined with the transparency in his costs is a winning combination and my wife and I plan on working with
in the future to make further improvements to our yard!

Why dig? Trenchless sewer line replacement bypasses the backhoe

Pipe lining and bursting replacement techniques offer alternatives to traditional sewer line excavation.

The main sewer line is the homeowner's responsibility up to the edge of the property.

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.

After meeting with 9 contractors, Yaron and Tamil were the only ones who gained my confidence that they would be able to stay close to the budget and time frame that we needed for our remodeling project. We handed them a tall order, wanting to accomplish approximately 2-3 months worth of remodeling in 4-5 weeks. They wowed us by beginning work on the same day we signed the contract. Before they even put their sign out, they had covered our floors with thick padding, not just paper, to protect them. Throughout the process they have been professional and organized with their progress payment system and weekly planning calendars. They are responsive and available. And when there is a problem, they resolve it fairly and quickly.
The head of the crew working on our house
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
has done a good job keeping the project moving forward and working with me to overcome challenges that could substantially slow it down. His chief tiler
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
is an amazingly talented craftsman who is dedicated to his work and willing to put in the time and effort to create a truly beautiful space. They are both positive and easy to work with.
One of the reasons we chose
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
is their ability to handle the scope of our project with their dedicated office staff and their ability to provide almost every contractor we needed to take care of all aspects of our remodel from window and door companies and stone fabricators to roofers and painters. When I call the office, Viviane or one of the other staff members pleasantly and promptly answers the phone and takes care of my request. I am still in awe of the custom cabinets their cabinet makers created for us - they're beautiful!
They also make it a priority to keep the job site relatively clean, bagging trash and picking up building materials at the end of the day. And they installed a portable toilet, which is regularly cleaned out, for the workers to use on site.
As a realtor and homeowner, I have worked with many contractors, and the quality of work and service of
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
is head and shoulders above the majority of contractors I have worked with in the past. Without a doubt, I will refer them to clients and friends when ever anyone I know is looking for quality construction inside or outside their home.

We got off to a strange started as

wanted to start the project I wanted a project scope and estimate. We agreed on a limited initial task at a fair price. Once

& Renovation is an absolutely great company with which to work. They are diligent and professional in their work, and the quality of the work that was done at our home definitely provides the proof of that assertion for me.

Prior to selecting
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
, we had several other remodeling companies provide us with estimates, as well as design ideas. We chose
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
for various reasons, including overall pricing, the quality of work that we viewed on their website, the fact that they are a local company, but more importantly, we chose them after they came to our home to discuss the projects in depth. During this conversation, we covered the scope of the projects and outlined our expectations, which were certainly met, for the completed projects. That provided us with a sense of assurance that these projects would be well done, and on a timely basis. From my perspective, they held up to that assurance very well.

This type of follow-through, as well as true quality workmanship and being responsible for said quality, is sometimes difficult to find with remodeling companies. To find this present in
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
's way of doing business is very refreshing. As anyone who has had remodeling done, these type of projects can be a hassle to the homeowners, in, and of, themselves. The representatives of
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
did their absolute best to reduce that factor to a degree that I have rarely seen.

The end result of the overall project is a remodeled indoor/outdoor living area that we are excited to see. We are looking forward to enjoying it.

My wife and I highly commend
Chestertown Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
& Renovation for their work. We would definitely consider them for any future projects in, and around, our home.

Great! - It was a difficult installation due to location and terrain, everything was done by hand and with buckets - No major equipment could be used in this area. The project took longer than he originally estimated and used more materials due to complications of the location requiring more walls and cement to be needed to strengthen the base. Through it all they kept working and they had a critical completion timeline - I had a big party that was being hosted at my house that weekend and he had to complete the critical area for the guests walkway before the event. The closer came through and was always very professional and responsive.
