"
was great. Called ahead (as I'd requested) and did a walk-thru with me to understand what I needed done then he got to work. There" were a few issues between the galvanized pipes and the old cast iron flange on the basement toilet, but
informed me of them and how he was going to work around them. I really appreciated the options he presented to me when it came to the laundry tub. I bought a new one to replace the old - standing on legs like the old one. However
pointed out that the drain line was running uphill due to the height of the conneciton to the stack and the shorter height of the bottom of the sink. He said he could fix the stack connection (at least 3 hours of work) or if I found a wall mount sink or a kit to convert the one I had to wall mount that would work to get the sink drain higher and not need to do the stack work. I gave a B on price simply because I was hoping to keep it under a 1,000 - but with a vintage house and multiple projects that may have been naive.

"
came by the first time to provide an estimate and do some smaller jobs such a fixing a toilet and a sink. He then came out the second time" for new water heater installation. Everything was exactly we expected. We liked his work so much we kept finding other plumbing tasks around the house we wanted him to do for us.
's work is done expertly, he is punctual, he communicates well, he is extremely pleasant, and easy to do business with. Using
was a no-brainer for us.

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.

Hiring a Plumber

When you need a plumber, especially for an expensive project for which you have time to plan, make sure you hire one who is fully qualified and licensed in your state. A plumber may be an apprentice, a journeyman or a highly qualified master plumber, depending on the level of training and experience.

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.

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!
?

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

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.

I woke up early Saturday morning and noticed that all the faucets in my house were not working. I figured the pipes had froze, because It was the coldest night of the year. I called few companies, but only

from
Red Hook Plumbers Provider Name Locked
answered. He is a very funny and friendly guy, I felt comfortable using the company right away. He explained that they were very busy, but he will try to fit me in. A few minutes later he called to let me know one of his workers can stop by in one hour.
About 30 minutes later

arrived and we went into the crawl space to inspect the pipes. He gave me a detailed explanation of all my options and the gradual steps he will take if the first option fails to work.

went to his truck for more equipment, but by the time he came back from his van water started flowing from the faucets.
He went back in the crawl space to make sure the pipes didn't burst. I would like to thank

We called Universal on Sunday morning at 8:30 AM for emergency service and they had a technician come to our home within 1.5 hours. We had no water in home because of pipes bursting from the cold and they added 2 shut off valves within a couple of hours so water could be turned on in the house. On the next day, Monday, they came back and repaired the 2 burst pipes in the crawl space in single digit temperatures. We will use them exclusively in the future and Highly Recommend

installed a new sump pump motor in our home in April 2014. No complaints about that - the installation was routine, and the motor has been fine. In March 2015, the sump pump suddenly stopped working, and water began seeping into our basement. I called at 5:30pm on a weekday, and was immediately redirected to

Not once did the operator or

We have a home warranty and the warranty company chose the plumber. Made appt. for 3/3 @ 7pm.Called around 3:30ish to say he could come now. Husband left work and came home to meet him. No show. No call. Tried calling several times, no answer. Called warranty company this morning and they apparently got in touch with him. Plumber called, said he'd be there at a certain time and he was. Took about 1/2 hour to clean out drain. Explanation for the no call no show was that he got two other calls on their way over here. Was not happy about having to do the job; stated he were having "another Monday," and that everybody expected their job to be a priority.... don't appreciate him making the appt.. then calling to change the appt. and then not showing up. Especially when my husband had to leave work to accommodate him. I see that this plumber has many good reviews so I was not expecting a bad experience at all. Very disappointed. So far, the drain is working fine, but there is a lot more to customer service and acquiring loyal customers than just snaking a drain properly.

Mr.
Red Hook Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was quick to reply to the initial request, and very flexible (patient) with the repair date / time as the tenant in the unit had to move things around in order for the repair to get done.
He is knowledgeable about repairs as he's been in the industry for many years. He quickly diagnosed the source of the problem and proceeded with the repair after discussing the cost.
When the repair was complete, he tested to ensure it wasn't leaking.
He used high quality parts in the repairs.
He then proceeded to offer suggestions to keep the damage from happening again, which is a rarity.
He is a sincere and honest man that stands behind his work.
I will recommend him to my friends and colleagues that need any plumbing repaired.
He went above and beyond my expectations.
Mr.
Red Hook Plumbers Provider Name Locked
is willing to get the job done without complaint, even at late hours of the evening.
He also offered a military discount which was very thoughtful and much appreciated.
