Why dig? Trenchless sewer line replacement bypasses the backhoe

Pipe lining and bursting replacement techniques offer alternatives to sewer line excavation. "Trenchless" process is ideal when patios or decks are in the way.

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.

We had a major water leak in the kitchen. The water was coming through the light fixture on the ceiling, it was getting everything wet and we couldn't figure out where the water was coming from. We called
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
who promptly came out and inspected the kitchen to find the leak. After a thorough investigation it was determined that the water lines that were running through the ceiling were bad and leaking water into the kitchen. It was also determined that the previous owner of the house had done his own plumbing work and did not do things correctly. We had decided to have the whole house re-piped instead
of just spot fixing the leak to prevent further problems in the future.

re-piped the whole house in a timely matter and the problem was resolved. We haven't had any problems since.

did such a wonderful job with his ideas. The ideas just came natural to him and he had just pulled them out of his head for the design was so wonderful and creative with them.
I was just lost for words when he just started suggesting ideas and what I could do with my project.
They had started the excavation with a machine, and at the same time the delivery truck had shown up with the pavers to my surprise. I had thought it would have taken longer than it did, from the start to finishing period.
They started the installation of pavers of the driveway the fallowing day of the excavation with the machine, at the same time they were installing the driveway they had men in the back doing the excavation by hand and by then started the sidewalk that

around to the patio.
From my amazement, they had my dream driveway and patio done in three day's.
I could not of imagined such a beautiful job done by anyone like they had done. It had came out better than I had expected, and I can not thank them enough for the awesome job they did.

I called
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
about a flooding/drainage issue I had in my backyard and patio area. My backyard is next to a field which slopes towards my house. My patio and portions of my yard would be 'underwater' after a heavy rain leaving it unusable for days. I was also concerned about damage to the house and foundation. I called and spoke to
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
. He was courteous and assured me he would be able to solve the drainage problem.
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
arrived and I showed him the area and what exactly the problem was. He seemed very knowledgeable of this type of situation and was describing what was causing it as well as a plan to correct it. He took notes and measurements of the area and created a drainage plan with a quote.
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
and his crew were friendly and organized and began moving pavers, digging, etc. I was pleased with their work, it only took two days to complete and he gave me a five year warranty on the drainage system. Since then, we have had several rains, some even severe. I was so excited not to have any standing water in my backyard or patio after the rain! I was able to use my patio within minutes after a rain, not days and I would recommend them to anyone who is having a similar drainage problem.

We had serious drainage issues in our front and backyard. I called
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
and they were available promptly to come give me an estimate and to size up the problem. The work was done when they said it would be and we were very pleased with the outcome. We have had a lot of rain lately and the drain pipe seems to be doing it's job. We also had moss rock and bull rock added to enhance the front landscape. Again, we were pleased with the outcome and promptness of service.

Last May and June we began experiencing water leaking into the basement bathroom. It was coming from the West wall, behind the cabinet. As I removed the cabinet, I found mold and damp drywall along that wall. We have also noticed the tiles on the floor are loose and the floor heating doesn’t work any longer.

We called PermaSeal to come look at it, and after 4-5 visits, they finally brought a plumber out with a camera to inspect the outside drain system. When they inserted the camera into the clean-out, they confirmed the drainage system only went south of the clean-out towards the front of the house. This left about 8-10 feet to the North completely unprotected, and this is exactly where the water was entering the house. When I reviewed the contract the previous owner signed with them, it clearly states how many feet of drainage tile were to be installed and that the entire house (except for the crawl space) was to be covered.

In short,
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
charged for work they did not perform which lead to damage of the basement. They have accepted responsibility and they added the missing section of the drainage system in October. I have since been working with them on the payment for the damages and they are being rather difficult to deal with. I believe at a minimum, they were negligent in performing the work.

We have received three estimates and PermaSeal has offered to pay the lowest of the estimates in return for a complete waiver of liability. I am unwilling to accept this offer.

was very professional, responsive and knowledgeable about his profession. We went over a few iterations of the drainage design as there were some issues and concerns with the initial design. We also modified this further to incorporate a drainage solution for the roof runoff as well as runoff from my neighbors.
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
also provided a list of references, of which I called several and they all provided excellent reviews of his work, several of which were engineers and contractors as well as home owners.
He installed a 4" pipe and tied my front downspouts into it to handle my roof runoff. These also included clean-out ports, which I had not seen others incorporate and is good idea for maintenance. Other drainage specialists said the water couldn't be drained to the street, but
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
was right and his design worked when others said it wouldn't. For all the other runoff from the neighbors, this was handled by replacing the old insufficient basin and sump pump, which was no longer working, with a new basin and pump. There was a hiccup with getting the right pump, of which

found a special pump to work with my particular scenario, but
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
made it right the next working day. This pump is a force to be reckoned with! There was also an adjustment required with the position of the new basin, but
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
had his guys correct this immediately. Both discharge pipes exit the
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
, of which his guys did a great job coring the
Dover Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
and making it look good as new with the pipes.
The day of the job I also asked him about adding the some downspout connections, with the clean-outs, to 3 other downspouts on the other side of the house. He offered to connect these to another pipe going to the street, but due to budget, I just had him connect these to pop-ups out in the yard to keep it away from the foundation. He tunneled under the flower beds to run the pipes to the yard, with the pop-ups for distribution, as requested. I was happy he was able to accommodate on short notice.
we've had 2 rains, one light and one heavy, and everything is working flawlessly. Even the part of the solution everyone had doubts about is working as intended. I will also say his crew is the cleanest and most meticulous I've seen. His price was also competitive. Highly recommended.

Bought the $49.50 diagnostic service call due to a radiator that was only partially filling and would not bleed air when opened. Sadly, I was ignorant about radiators and boilers. The tech arrived on schedule and was very pleasant and professional. He quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem. He educated me about how to add water to the system if the pressure dropped below a particular point and what the ideal pressure range was. He also told me how to drain the system in order to temporarily move a radiator for an upcoming project. Very happy with tech and service!
