How to Avoid Common Plumbing Scams

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.

First - NOT full septic tank - if that was the case you would be getting backup of sewage into the lowest drains in the house, and possible very slow flushing or refusal to drain out of the bowl - the opposite of your case.

Second - I assume you are the owner. If a renter or on a lease, this type of problem may be the responsibility of your landlord, depending on the terms of your lease or rental agreement.

OK - two possible situations here - low water in BOWL, or low water in TANK. I am assuming your toilet flushes OK, with adequate water to clean out the bowl, and that it is a typical type toilet with a tank sitting on the back of the bowl. If this is not the case and it is a designer toilet or looks like those at public restrooms (no tank), then the BOWL answers still apply if it is initially refilling OK, but if not enough refill water coming in at all then call a plumber.

First, low water in the toilet BOWL case. If the water in the toilet BOWL is low after flushing, I see four likely causes, in order of most likelihood -

1) the fill valve is not putting enough water into the toilet bowl. If you take the top off the tank, you will see a small hose (typically black plastic) coming from the fill valve (a vertical mechanism, usually at left side of tank, that the incoming water tube or flex hose connects to the bottom of on the bottom side of the tank). While the tank is refilling after a flush, a steady but not large flow of water flows through this fill tube and down into a vertical pipe or tube (usually brass or plastic and about 3/4 inch diameter, which stands almost full height of tank). The small tube puts water into this pipe, from where it flows into and refills the toilet bowl. This is also the overflow tube, which keeps the tank from overflowing if the fill valve fails to shut off. If the fill valve has a problem or the fill tube has a blockage, it may not be letting enough water into the bowl. Also, check the tube is actually pointed down into the overflow tube - if the clip came loose, rusted away or broke, then it may just be filling the toilet tank rather than the bowl. Check that a steady flow (will not be a real foreceful jet) of water is flowing out of this tube into the overflow pipe while the toilet tank is refilling. You should also see the bowl filling up at this time. If it come in but does not fill high enough because it does not run long enough, some fill valves have an adjustment - check fill valve manufacturer website for instructions. Others just have to be replaced - doable if you are handy at home repairs (see web videos on how to do it), or call a plumber for probably about $150-200 to replace fill valve (have him replace the flapper valve at same time if you get this done).

2) there is something like a rag or string caught in the trap (the waste passage within the toilet body itself) which is slowly wicking the bowl water down the drain - would be solved by a good snaking. If this is the case, the bowl will fill fully after flushing, but then slowly (typically many minutes to hours) drain down to just filling the start of the oval or round drain passageway where the waste passage starts to curve up into the toilet body.

3) blocked sewer vent pipe (which vents sewer gas and lets air into the sewer system so when you flush the traps in drains and toilets and such do not get sucked dry by the vacumn caused by the exiting flow. If this is the problem, then several drains in your house may have the same problem, or drain slowly. When you flush, the water will drain totally down the pipe and almost all the water in the bowl and trap will go down the drain too, typically with a gurgling sound for a few seconds at the end as the air seal is broken in the trap, then a small amount of water will flow back from the trap into the bowl, leaving you with water in the entrance curve to the trap but nowhere near normal height in the bowl - maybe not even enough to fill the entrance of the drain passage.

4) a crack in the toilet, letting water gradually leak out of the bowl onto the floor or into the subfloor. If this has been going on for long at all you should see water on the floor, or water coming out in the ceiling downstairs, or in the basement or crawl space under the toilet.

Case 2 - the problem is low water in the toilet TANK - since this is a sudden problem, two likely causes:

1)  the float arm has corroded or the float setting has moved. Look in tank for any broken part. You may have a black ball on the end of a metal or plastic arm connected to the fill valve (which is the part, normally at the left side of the tank, that the flexible or copper tubing comes into at the bottom of the tank), or it may be a sliding cylindrical float that slides up and down on the fill valve (typically all plastic) - see if it is broken or loose or alll corroded up (for the arm type). When you flush, this float hangs down (if lever type) or slides down the fill valve (cylinder type), opening the fill valve so fresh water comes in to fill the tank and bowl. As the tank fills it lifts this float, till at the proper elevation the bouyancy of the float shuts off the fill valve. If the setting on this float has changed then it will either cause the toilet to "run" continually because it is trying to overfill the tank (float shuts off at too high a level, so water is continuously flowing down into the overflow tube and into the bowl); or it will shut off too soon, causing only a partial tank fill. There are adjustments to adjust the float shutoff setting - typically an adjustment xxxx on the arm-type, and a slider stop clip on a small rod for the sliding type. See web videos on how to adjust this, or call a plumber.

2) your flapper valve (in bottom of tank, the part a chain or cord or rod connects to the flush handle, which opens it when you flush the toilet, leaks. If it leaks AND the fill valve is working, the tank level drops till the fill valve opens, then the tank refills. This repeats at intervals, with the tank refilling periodically even though it has not been flushed. May need new flapper valve or just a good wiping of the sealing surface to remove grit that is causin it to leak. If this is the problem you will have a slight flow of water into the bowl continually, and will probably see a slight ripple in the toilet bowl.

3) water is leaking out of the fittings or bolt holes on the bottom of the tank. If this is happening enough to make you notice low takn water level, the tank will refill periodically the same as if the flapper valve is leaking, plus you will have water on the floor and dripping off the bottom of the tank.

 

Fill valve and flapper valves each cost around $15 if you do it yourself (you can buy just replacement flapper for less if that is the problem and the matching seal is good, but that is rarely the case). A plumber call to replace both probably $150-200, ASSUMING your water shutoff valve (at the wall, under the tank, with a flex or copper tube coming fromit up to the toilet tank) will work.. If it will not shut off the flow of water, then add another $50-150 to replace that, depending on how it is plumbed and whether he has to cut into the wall to replace it (rarely required). If you do go and have a plumber do it, have both the fill valve and flapper valve (and flush handle, if aluminum or brass and corroded) replaced at the same time, as all tend to go out with age - every 10 years or so. You don't want to have to call the plumber to replace another part in just a year or two.

?

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!

We had a bathroom sink not draining properly but it is also the sink which ties into our a/c unit drain. The sink overflowed in the evening. We found

around 9pm. We called left a message. Within 5 minutes we received a call back. We explained the situation, he diagnosed the issue, took our address and said he would be here by 9am. They showed up today promptly, snaked the sink, checked the ac line & we are good to go. The staff was professional, on-time & courteous. I would highly recommend them.

Overall, we were exceptionally pleased with the quality of his work, professionalism and prompt customer service. We would highly recommend him to anyone in need of plumbing assistance. Details follow.
After moving into our new home, we realized the water was hard leaving reside behind on kitchen/bathroom fixtures. Luckily, we found

(

) on Angie's List. He quickly scheduled an appointment, stopped by and tested the water confirming it was hard. From there, he recommended a water softener system to treat our specific needs. He promptly scheduled a follow up appointment and installed all the equipment. After installation, he provided an overview of the system explaining how it worked and where to replenish the salt. Several weeks later, I was curious whether the system was working properly. He quickly answered my texts and called saying he would mail several water test strips. Sure enough, the water tested soft confirming everything is working just fine. Price was a bit high versus big box stores, but he convinced us that you get what you pay for....

Assigned this company through a home warranty. Received a call from company within two hours of placing the claim. They set up an appointment for the following morning btw 8-12. Called exactly at 8 and said a technician would be on the way as soon as possible.

arrived promptly and immediately began to diagnose the problem. He tracked down the problem and reported it back to the company to check if it was under warranty. It turned out to be a maintenance issue with our air conditioner which was unfortunately not under warranty. We were given advice on how to attack the problem if we wanted to do it ourselves but we opted to have the professional take care of it.

Unfortunately, the rooter service was incomplete and the same problem of waste line blockage re-occurred about 1 week later. Female staff (receptionist) very arrogant and stated that I would have to pay for another service call. Did I mention that she was arrogant (and cavalier)!!! I asked to speak to the owner
Red Hook Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and was denied. I called another service; however, apparently the owner was apprised of my dissatisfaction and came out and re-did the waste line rooter clean-out. He was apologetic and stated my business was valuable to him (I've used this service about once per year for the last 8 years - and even referred to friends). When I called a some months later to hire their services again I was scheduled for the next day. The day of the scheduled service appointment a female staff (receptionist) member stated they were not coming for the appointment and would no longer service my address. All this time they have been e-mailing me with advertisements and "specials" for using their service but refused my business??? When your waste line is blocked, you need service right away. For them to wait until just before the appointment to refuse service to me is ridiculous no to mention unprofessional. Some of their technicians are not very well trained; but, since I'm a retired general contractor and own a number of rentals I know what's required and often had to instruct their technicians what needed to be done. I think it's childish and vindictive to be dealt with in this manner. Since then, I've used RJ

We had a problem in the back yard...... a previous plumber I used because of a coupon I received, Pipe Bros., had attached a brass hose bib to a pvc pipe and one morning I heard what sounded like a geyser going off. When I went to investigate the noise, sure enough, the brass hose bib was off and water was shooting up in the air. To make things worse, we are in a serious DROUGHT. Well I went to cut the water off and found out I did not have a convenient shut off valve. I had to go to the street at the meter and I couldn't budge the turn off valve. I had to call the Water Dept to come out and do it. Well to make a long story short.....I called a good plumber I had used in the past (Gem) but they could not get out until Monday. This was on a Friday. Well I thought I would call around and happened onto

. After setting up an appointment they emailed me a picture of my plumber that was coming out that same day. His name is

and he is a guru. He diagnosed our problem, raised my pressure regulator and added beautiful copper with a shut off valve. He rerouted the water from the pvc explosion in the back and with all copper he gave me a new brass hose bib that was securely attached. I would give five stars but the price was a little more than I expected but you get what you pay for. There will never be a geyser in the back now. Thanks
