"I found a special offer on Angies List for a 50
Water Heater for $849.00. When I inquired about it, I was told that the unit on sale would" not be the equivalent of what we had and would take up to one and a half hours to recover hot water after usage. I said this was not acceptable as the broken water heater would reheat in about 15 minutes. So they quoted me $2,485 for higher BTU's. We felt this was way too high and told them we would continue shopping. We did finally have the same unit they quoted installed for $1,412 by another professional plumber. I note that the offer is no longer available although there were "24 days remaining" on 2/22/2015.

was punctual, wore booties, and treated my home with respect. He cleaned up after himself and explained everything that he was doing. Since" this was a home that we just bought, I also asked him about certain aspects about the plumbing infrastructure that were accessible in the crawl space and he inspected them carefully and addressed all of my questions. I will definitely call them in the future for my plumbing repairs.

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.

gas fireplace with fire burning
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.

was awesome. He called and arrived when he said he was going too. He spent about 30 minutes in my home trying to troubleshoot a problem we are have with our furnace. The problem was unique so he said he wanted to call the company to diagnose and remedy it correctly before having me spend money.

called back two days later with a lot of information. He gave me a price for the job but in fairness to me said that I should try to see if my original installer would come back to redo some of the piping at a

So, long story short,

For both jobs,
Muskegon Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was terrific. They were on-time, they were very knowledgable and answered all my questions, they're very friendly and courteous, and they charged very fair prices. I'm going to be using them as my plumbers from now on. The next big plumbing job I'll have them do is to replace the shower faucet in my master bathroom.

We called in early morning and the service man came before lunch. we were unable to use toilets or showers so their quickness was much appreciated. The sewer line to the street was cleared after several hours and full service restored.

My water heater started leaking and I called the next morning to check in to cost and find out when they could install a new water heater. I was able to purchase the deal, but I had some pipes around the water heater that I thought could make it difficult to install. I took a picture of the area so they were aware of the situation. They were very professional and friendly on the phone, arrived when they said they would and my water heater was replaced. I have not had any trouble since and would call them again.

I felt that the gentleman was trying to rip me off. He knew that it was an easy fix and did not want to be bothered. He wanted to sell and install a new toilet that I did not need. He would have gotten all A's if he told me what I needed to do to fix it. Instead I called my brother, went to Lowes, purchased a flapper for about $5 and it took less then 5 minutes to install. The toilet no longer leaks. I do not recommend this company.
