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.

came over to the house, he thanked me for being so patient even though I was the one who should have been thanking him. I did not believe how quickly they were able to assess the issue. It may have been anywhere from 15-30 minutes until the inspection was done in order to assess the damage so that immediate action could take place.
It’s just nice to hear a reasonable cost for reliability and professionalism. With a minimum of 3 hrs of work for the fee of 225, I was met with some decisions and questions for the remainder of time. I was able to get prevention tips, also tightened up quickly all the main floor faucets just for reassurance, and since the paint was damaged enough to peel off some paint, they went ahead and scrapped the hanging paint in order to sand/smooth off the edges so that a contractor can come and patch/prime/paint.
Here’s the good part. They provide this service too! I decided to just have them do it all, with a follow up appointment to be made after 48 hours to ensure all of the leaking area showed full signs of what damage happened so they job would be assessed properly.
I finally was able to rest at night knowing that the process was logical, and I wasn't feeling as if the job was underdone, or that I was taken advantage of. It was

While there was nothing he could repair at this visit, he was very professional, did a good job of cleaning up all the drywall dust, and they did not even charge us for a trip call. We also have used them in the past for reseating our toilet in the guest bathroom. The work was great, affordable and professional for this experience as well. That is why we called them again. Their magnet stays on our refrigerator.

was very responsive returning my Angie's List message almost immediately. He scheduled an appointment at our convenience and arrived when he said he would. His prices were fair, the workmanship good and he was friendly and courteous. We will definitely use him again. He deserves his outstanding Angie's List rating.

I bought the deal offered, $119 Plumbing Service Call and up to One Hour of Labor with a Free Home Plumbing
Inspection. I scheduled for the following week.
The tech was late on the day scheduled. I had to call to make sure they were coming. Fortunately I had taken the day off and had expected delays.
When he arrived about an hour and a half later, he assessed what needed to be done and explained what he would do. He had to go get the part for the shower valve and that took about an hour.
He came back and shimmed the toilet explaining that sometimes the floor is not level.
Then he changed the shower valve. Success! We have hot water now!
Then he proceeded to assess the repair to the water line on the ice maker. My kitchen is a galley kitchen. Once the refrigerator was pulled out, there was no way to get to the water line except to climb over the counter to the other side of the refrigerator. He asked me if it was ok to remove his shoes so he could climb over to the other side. I felt terrible he had to do that but that was the only way to access the water line.
He added the connection line and as he continued he discovered there was another break in the line further down which would need additional time and parts to repair as it was behind the molding or under the floor. He didn't have the parts so he suggested scheduling another time to return to finish the job if I wanted. He capped off the line under the sink so that it could be hooked back up at some point and that I could once again have hot water in the sink.
Overall a good experience even though the ice maker water line didn’t get repaired. At least I know what will be involved next time if I do decide to fix it.
I also had other plumbing questions regarding my water heater and washing machine which are both on the 2nd floor. The tech answered with no problem explaining what was involved and informing me what I wanted to do would require much more work and cost to get to the result I wanted.
The tech was knowledgeable and fixed my problems.

for years for all my plumbing needs. The entire job was accomplished in about 20 minutes. They leave everything neat and clean the area. They take the time during and after the job to explain the problem and solution. I would recommend them without reservation based on my years of experience with them.

The gentleman was on-time and professional. He knew what needed to be done and even had to leave a couple of times to get parts. I was afraid the cost was going to be more than the deal I purchased and it wasn't. It took an hour and I am so relieved to have it fixed!

This is the 3rd time I've hired Ti and he is officially my go-to plumber. This time, he had a 2nd pair of helpful hands with his new apprentice

..... who was an awesome hire btw! Both guys were very professional and worked well together as a team to get the job/s done quickly. Upon arrival, I walked them through my laundry list of plumbing issues, and Ti was thorough in his feedback on each. Due to budget, I had them tackle only our biggest [plumbing] issues, which are listed above. The remaining "handyman-type" plumbing issues, I opted to try and fix myself, which Ti was super accommodating to explain the "how to" + provided a product list!! What a GUY :) Thanks again Ti and
