"I had several people come and give estimates for drainage work I needed. There was no comparison, he came out scoped out a plan, gave an estimate and put it in beautifully." His customer service was good, the people I worked with were great, he came back out and tested it to make sure it was put in properly, and even called to make sure everything was still going ok.

-Richard L.

"Excellent!! Worth the wait (sometimes booked out a bit for estimate and work- probably because they are SO GOOD!). Despite many challenges (random pipes, buried" irrigation, electric, AC etc.) they got the job done and it looks fabulous! NO damage to anything at all- The
team was meticulous and thorough- did most of the work by hand given poor accessibility in my yard. They were even so kind as to move the concrete scrap from the AC pad a fair distance to where I could use it to prevent errosion. I couldn't be happier. Looking forward to the next rain practically! They explained what they were doing and why- and were always here for estimates and work on time. I have a large yard with more future projects and will certainly call on
going forward. FIVE STARS!

Take off the lid to the tank and check inside.  There should be a small hose going into a larger pipe near the middle of the tank right next to the flapper.  When you flush the toilet water squirts from that hose into the pipe.  If it isn't in place put it back so that water goes down that pipe once again.  This is what refills your bowl.  If water does not come out of the little hose check to see if it is kinked or blocked.  You can take it off and blow air through it.  Don't worry, it's only clean water that goes through the hose.  If it is clear and water does not come out of the short pipe where it attaches on the flush valve then there is a clog in that valve and it will probably need to be replaced.  These are $10-20 at any home improvement store and even Wal-Mart.  The instructions are simple and you can do it yourself in about 15 minutes.  Check the washer on the supply hose to the toilet while it is off to replace the flush valve.  If it is old or worn replace the hose as well.  It is cheap insurance of only a few dollars which is a lot cheaper than a failed hose or washer causing water to leak.


If you don't feel comfortable replacing the fill valve, if it is needed, a handyman can do it fairly cheap.  Whereas a plumber or other contractor will have a minimum charge of $100-200 a handyman might do it for about $50.

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!

Well , you've certainly started a debate that will endure forever , but personally , having worked with both products , PEX is a better product . Now granted , the 1st time i used it

I was not impressed , cause it leaked.......NOT because the product was at fault, it was because I did not understand how to use the product !

The trick to using Pex , is to make certain that the fittings seat, they MUST be pushed together with force, and if you do not push with force to get the seat to seal, it leaks .

Therefore , when using PEX , you have constantly to be aware of leaving room to make your connections -Properly !

The beauty of PEX is that it bends , it is flexible and decreases the labor factor ,although the connection costs are often 100-300 % higher than copper , but again , it can cut labor costs in half  and it is safer to work with,  NO FLAMEs!

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.

Drain Pipe Installation reviews in Dover


I initially gave
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
an overall rating of A. However, about six months after they repaired the sewer line, I called them back because another hole had formed near the sewer line in my yard. They re-inspected the line with a camera and found another hole 4 feet from the original break in the line. In addition, a city inspector told me that there is an active rat's nest near the break.
I believe that
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
either 1) missed the second break when they did the first repair, or 2) may have caused the break when they filled in the hole.
The owner of
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
refused to stand behind the quality of their work, claiming the break may have been a new one. The only compensation
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered was to waive the fee of a few hundred dollars to send equipment to my house and do a new repair.
They proposed fixing the second break for about $3,600 which is in addition to the $3,000 I had already paid. I told a manager that I did not expect them to
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
money, but that I did expect them to stand behind the quality of their work and reduce the price. The owner of the company did not return my calls even though I left two messages.
I got a recommendation for Inter- City Sewer who proposed to fix the line for $2600. Inter-City said if another problem is found six months after they do the work, they will come out and dig up the hole for no cost and fix it for free if it appeared that they missed it or caused it.
I would not recommend

I can’t thank
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
enough for what he has done for my family. I was devastated when I was told by a plumber that our sewer line was disconnected from the sewer main, which is somewhere around 20 feet below ground. The repair would cost $20-30K. I felt I needed a second opinion from an expert in the field and I found ICUNJ on Angie’s List. I called
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
and arranged a free video inspection within 2 days.
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived at our scheduled time and performed a thorough inspection from our lateral to the main and also a section of the main. Unfortunately he confirmed the plumber’s findings but advised me to contact the MUA once he provides me with a report of his observations. Within 2 days I received
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s report, which contains details of the inspection methods, his observations and opinion. It was evident that he is articulate, detail oriented and most importantly, has a high level of expertise.

MUA’s initial response was that it was our responsibility up to the main. Upon reviewing
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s report, the MUA came out and performed their own inspection. Throughout the day’s activities by the MUA, there was no clear indication that they would assume full responsibility of the issue.
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
supported us the entire day with phone calls and texts. He was on the phone with us numerous time to provide insights and went above and beyond to seek information that the MUA did not disclose at first.

In the end, the MUA took full responsibility in resolving the issue.
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
continued to check in and offered advice. I
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
’t know what would have happened if I didn’t find
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Throughout the entire process,
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
has kept our best interest a priority before his bottom line. No doubt I would hire
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
if the MUA did not resolve the issue. I wish there was a way I can repay what
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
has done for us but he declined any reimbursement. Finding a contractor has always been a hit or miss so I consider myself very lucky to have found
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He has shown us that he cares about his customers and doing the right thing whether it yields any financial benefits.

is a great guy and a man of integrity.

I am so very pleased with the work completed. I bought this house not too long ago. It's amazing how many issues can be missed! On all four corners of the foundation, there were large pieces of concrete that had broken off under the brick. After being fixed, I can't tell that it was ever broken. He did an excellent job of tuckpointing some areas of the brick that I did not notice needing repair. I had a large crack in a basement wall going sideways and about halfway in the eight foot tall wall. He told me that it was caused by too much pressure from the ground being too wet outside. He said the pressure from outside was pushing against the concrete wall and the crack would continue to grow larger and eventually leak. He installed new french drain outside to divert water away from the foundation and then sealed the crack in the interior basement wall. I am so totally pleased I can use the wood

in the basement. The first time I tried it, smoke filled the basement! It turns out the original clay flue liner was broken but the chimney was completely blocked by soot! It was just a matter of time it would have caught fire. I am pleased that all of my questions were answered politely and to the point. They didn't try to sell me services that were not needed. Everything was carefully explained to me on each of the repairs that needed to be made and why it needed to be done. The guys were always friendly and showed up on time. When everything was complete, I couldn't even tell that they were even there to begin with! They cleaned up any mess that the job created. I have high regards and highly recommend
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
to anyone who needs to have work done. I will definitely hire them again in the future!

Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew were great to work with. It started with the bid.
Dover Drain Pipe Contractors Provider Name Locked
called and said he would be at our house at 1:00 p.m. on a Saturday, and he was there right on time. He provided us a very fair bid to build one retaining wall in our back yard. When that was completed (on time) we asked him to build another wall for us. His crew showed up on time and were extremely nice and professional. They cleaned up at the end of each day their work was amazing. We then asked for a third wall in our driveway because his work was so good. He even went beyond what was required by fixing our driveway surface and some drainage issues we had in the back yard.

I would hire

back again in a heart beat.

They were responsive, arrived on time, clearly laid out the plan, executed and final cost was within pre-approved quote.

They (Him & his Daughter's) basally lilied all through the process, from the time I paid him 1/2 up front to the time he said he would be back to cleanup the job site; in which I'm still waiting.

When asked to describe suspect problem and quote to a friend who was en route, the Technician said he would not do so.

We live on a lake and there is a walking path out behind our house and our yard and many others in this neighborhood do not drain well at all! We have 2 German

dogs and every time it even rained a small bit we had to wipe them down with not only a towel but a wet towel first to get all the mud off of them. It came to be where we would dread letting out dogs go outside. They also are very active and like to run. Our yard became a mud pit, no grass just mud from where they ran (which was every where).

is not a contractor that just tells his guys what to do and then leaves. He was here doing the work with them 98% of the time and if he wasn't here he was going to get some supplies. I have to state how very impressed we were with his knowledge and work. Our backyard now drains like a dream and has literally changed our lives! Our dogs go out all of the time and come in with just slightly damp paws, even when it is actively raining! We did have to have
