"That service turned out really well. They scheduled the service quickly after we purchased the deal. They have been the most reliable and they provide the best quality of service. They" have the best staff ever too. Recently they were able to come out for my bathroom sinks. Before that we had some excavation services done by them. They literally had to go under the foundation, cut and replace pipes. They are able to do everything and are willing to try anything to help save money too. They will tell us to go to Angie's List when they are offering a deal. They explain everything thoroughly. They are now our go to plumbers and I wished I could give them an A+. Their prices are also competitive.

Why dig? Trenchless sewer line replacement bypasses the backhoe

Pipe lining and bursting replacement techniques offer alternatives to traditional sewer line excavation.

The main sewer line is the homeowner's responsibility up to the edge of the property.

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.

Super fast.
We chose this company to do the sewer lateral since they were the ones who did the initial estimate provided in our (recently bought) house. We did not look for other estimates. It took 2 or 3 phone/email exchanges to set up a date to work on the sewer lateral. Once that was set, everything went smoothly.
The crew came on time and started work as soon as they parked the truck. I went to work and got an email from EBMUD that afternoon telling me the sewer line passed. I came home and the front yard, sidewalk and street looked great. The only evidence that work had happened was a 4x4 square of cement had been replaced (and had a board and orange cone on it).

- MariAnne R.

I contacted
Salem Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
to ask for a quote on sewer repair for my
home. After describing the problem, giving my name, address, and phone
number, I was put on hold for several minutes, and then was told there
would be a $50 service fee just to get an estimate. Many other plumbers
(not to mention contractors in general) give free estimates for their
work. Frankly, I'm a bit surprised, but if that's the way they want to
run their business, that's their choice, I guess.
- Aaron O.

He showed up promptly for the estimate but showed up late to do the work, both days. The second day, he did not come at all, he had some other guy come. He said my husband shorted him $40, which he did not, but since my husband did not count the cash out to him he could not prove it. NOW we are having to have his work repaired because he did not install P traps under the commodes and we get a horrible sewer stench from the toilets when we use the washing machine or dishwasher. The faucets also do not stopper properly.
- charles W.

It went great! He and his helper were here 20 minutes after my husband called him - on a Saturday late afternoon/night - to unclog our 30' long storm drain pipe along the side of our home, which was clogged up with palm tree roots and what-not. The clog prevented rain water from flowing down to the street and away from our home.
$169 for about 45 minutes of work might sound high but on a Saturday night -- right before another big rain storm -- I'd call them again!!
Thank you

It has been about 2 years now, so I don't remember all the details. They did an excellent job in all respects, and it has held up well in the past two years.
- Adrian R.

It's not that his work was all that deficient but the costs were astronomical. He charged us $2,000 just to bring his back loader in to get to the pipe. And then later on, another $600 to bring in a truck to blow out the well pipe. None of this was discussed with us in terms of pricing. I expected a bill of $2,000 - maybe up to $3,000. . I'll pay the bill but will never call him again. He was here all of 13 hours over two days and I still can't get over the $5,000 bill.

and his crew,

, arrived on schedule and started the trenching required to

the new drain. In the process of the work they found several problems with the old cast iron drain, including a hole in the back of the interior section of the drain. They replaced everything and after seven hours of hard work, they finished up by spreading new grass seed and straw over the work area of the lawn. They left the work site neat and clean as well. They were a very competent and professional crew and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone with a similar problem. H.
