spent a lot of time describing the solution and telling us how it would remedy our water problem. He was consultative and did not try to oversell. I appreciated" his honesty and the professionalism. The installation crew was just as impressive. They were prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, and completed the work within 2 days. They cleaned everything before leaving.

inspected our whole crawl space and reported its condition comprehensively. His measurements turned out to be very accurate. Although he seemed to have a good" bit of work, he got to our job within the time he had projected.
is very personable and knowledgeable, and was able to give me excellent advice on crawl space and drainage issues that I didn't know about. His team has been together for a number of years. They completed all the work in one day. They laid out everything from under the house, and took away all the junk we didn't want to keep. His foreman crawled under the house with me to help me see all that had been done and answer my questions. They even gave me disposable coveralls to use in crawling under the house.

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.

Experts warn of environmental crisis as water supplies shrink and usage rises. Conservation is key to avoiding widespread drought.

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 Pipe Installation reviews in Kernersville


Navid and his crew did an amazing job. Our house was built four years ago. The grass was actual laid down the week of the Winter Storm in 2011! The builder never properly finished the drainage or extended the property to fully make use of the land. When I called Navid in (as I am a repeat customer), I told him exactly what I wanted. He told me what could and could not be done. He does not play games because he knows his business. Whatever he says he will give you, expect more because he gives you more! For example, my wife and I decided to go with a brick/stone based retaining wall. The wall was originally going to be 2.5ft tall. When the crew came in, it had to be a bit deeper and the soil and stones to fill the wall was substantially greater than expected. Did Navid charge me a penny more - no? He charged me exactly what he quoted me. Did the quality suffer - absolutely not. It turned out to be stunning.

The grass is the greenest on the block. The
Kernersville Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
appeal of the landscape and all the flowers and trees planted on the property make it look like a lush garden compared to a dinky backyard. Our deck, a three tier patio had concrete slab. Navid planned on putting pavers in. However, between the grass and existing concrete there was going to be a three inch gap. Navid worked with my wife and I to make dull look luxurious and rich - for practically nothing. Stonework was done in hours by his crew of experts. Navid gets the best quality materials and stands by his work. He did work for my wife and I in 2013. He even pedicured that existing work to make sure it was in tip top shape by pouring some new mulch down and re-purposing things to fit with our new landscape design.

The project took four days. There were anywhere between three crew members and eight crew members here working. These guys are respectful, professional, talented, and hard-working. Navid is an artistic genius and his exemplary work speaks for itself and his companies reputation.

We had a great experience with

. I initially met with

came out and reviewed the trouble areas and we revised the plan to accompany his recommendations.

Our yard is at the bottom of a bowl between our two neighbors, so we receive a large amount of water runoff. We had a soggy area in our yard and after discussing it with

he recommended extending the flower bed to cover that area and that French drains probably wouldn't fix the problem. We had two other company's suggest French drains to remedy the area. My wife and I appreciated his feedback on that issue.

offered up solid recommendations for our yard and didn't try to add on additional extras.

We had the rock beds and drainage installed in

. They had a last minute opening and knocked out the two beds and extra drainage in two days. The relief my wife and I have can't be expressed enough. We dreaded every heavy rain storm since we would just wash parts of our backyard wash away. Now we can enjoy watching our own mini river flow across and out of our backyard onto the flood plain behind our house.

The rest of the project was completed in early September.

and his team spent four work filled days to prepare the retaining walls and patio area.

and his team arrived before 7 each morning and worked hard all four days. I was amazed with how quickly and efficiently Nioclas and his team works. The crew is very courteous and incredibly hard working. The retaining walls have drainage placed behind them to help direct water away from the base of the walls. The patio is amazing and has a custom shape to it.

I appreciated

Cliff and his team are wonderful.
We had a little bit of trouble in the beginning when Cliff's computer failed and he was unable to get back to us as quickly as we'd hoped with a quote for the work. From the time we managed to schedule a second visit for him, to the completion of the work, everything went really smoothly.
Cliff is really passionate about what he does. I've had quotes from a handful of other basement waterproofers, (and also hired exterior drainage experts to help dry out our basement), but no one feels as credible as Cliff. He's not some sales guy who doesn't really know the issues. He meets you himself. He's got loads of experienced, and a degree in engineering. But most important, you really feel from start to finish like the thing that's the most important to Cliff is that you the customer feel well taken care of.
His wife

, who handles the scheduling and billing, is very nice and easy to work with. And his crew that actually did the work all were very professional, nice, easy to have around, cleaned up after themselves, and were patient in answering my many questions. I believe he has only a few crews, and many of the team have worked with Basements Unlimited for years.
I have no hesitation in recommending Basements Unlimited. I feel like we got really lucky when we finally brought them in.

Came on time and performed exactly as planned. Company did a good job explaining alternative and worked with us on price.Excellent follow up and communication during the planning phase.

They went out of their way to contain the dust from the
Kernersville Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
-hammering process required to install the new drainage tile in the basement. They also laid down flooring protection, as they had to haul dirt and chunks of concrete out from the basement, through our dining room area. Then they had to haul stone and new concrete back down through the house. Despite the abrasive, high traffic nature of the process, no damage was done to our flooring, and now we have a "new" basement. The waterproofing process they used looks extremely bullet proof, and should there ever be a leak again, they have guaranteed their work for the life of our home.
- William D.

It went very smooth, there was no problems, they arrived as scheduled and finished the job in time estimated, did a great job in cleaning up, and have a wonderful and friendly staff. The job was completed as estimated.

I had a large puddle appear in my basement laundry room. It seemed to be getting larger after I ran the dishwasher that morning. The company sent

out within a few hours.

was able to figure out that while I did have a loose pipe which he fixed, the real problem was a broken French drain where the downspout came down just outside the spot where the leak was happening.

helped my son put in place a temporary solution to reroute the downspout until I can get another professional in to repair the French drain.
