"excellent service, with no problems. cleaned up daily and left no debris. Very happy with the work. really glad we had it installed. In addition to the Gas boiler" they also ran lines to a fire place and replaced the connection on our gas
. I feel very safe with them doing th work.

"I wish I could recall the guy's name because he was AWESOME. He was prompt, neat, courteous and above all knowledgeable. He tried multiple times to snake the" drain before it actually worked. He tested his work several times to make sure the sink drained properly. He answered all my questions and provided additional insight as to how to minimize grease build up. From my perspective he went the extra mile. I bought the $99 service because from all indications it should have been a
solution, snake the drain, but the build up of grease made it more complicated yet he honored the $99 and didn't try to charge more. I would highly recommend this plumber. Last year I used a different plumbing company on Angie's List and the difference in service was night and day.
and Sewer Contractor is by far the best.

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.

I called that morning because our kitchen sink had been leaking on and off for a couple months, and we could not tighten the loose connectors any longer. PlumbIt had me purchase a new faucet at a local plumbing supply company, and the plumber came out a couple of hours later. So far, so good.

This is a late review. But wanted to give
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
from
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
a good review. He was prompt and even went out his way to stop by my tenants house to see if they were at the house, since the tenant was not answering the phone. He explained to me the problem I was having with my tub faucets leaking, went to the store and bought new faucets. and even recommended things i may want to have done in the future. I appreciate the work he did for me. I would recommend and use them in the future.

The plumber arrived exactly when he said he would. He was extremely polite making suggestions regarding replacing the toilet. He kept us well informed as to the progress of the work and worked well side by side with Disaster Plus.
I chose a step up in the quality of the new toilet but felt the final bill for the work provided was a little high. I don't know much about plumbing, so maybe these are the usual and customary fees. I was just happy to have such a nice gentleman come out and fix the pipe so we could dry out our home.

Carbon Monoxide inspection was fine, the cleaning was not very good. We had to clean the glass ourselves again as it was still very streaky and dirty. Glad we didn't pay any more than we did for the service.

Routine check went very well. However, it was a big surprise that we needed a lot of additional work to be done: A new kitchen faucet and also some gadget to control water pressure. The additional work, to be done on 01/30/2015, cost almost $1,800.00.

Mr.
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
came out as soon as he could leave the job he was working on when I called; he arrived quickly to deal with this emergency. The failed main water valve was leaking profusely. This was the main shut off valve into the house at the house not at the street. He arrived with the necessary copper pipe, and necessary valves and did the job expeditiously. The original water main valve was a gate valve; he replaced it with a lever-operated ball valve. He replace several small lengths of related copper pipe as well as the hose bib.
Prior jobs Mr.
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
has done in the last 5 or so years:
My house was built in 2005; I purchased it in fall of 2009. Mr.
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
has done several emergency jobs and installation jobs including: installing a filter system for a restaurant-quality espresso machine, replaced the drinking water system in the kitchen, and reseated a toilet which our flooring tile installer seated incorrectly. The very first job he did was an emergency. The baseboard installer accidentally drove a nail into a high-pressure water pipe servicing the air conditioner. Of course we turned the water main
off immediately. Mr.
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
arrived at this first call just as soon as he could. He looked at the special type of plastic composition pipe and stated that he was certified/qualified to repair it and did so immediately. He had the replacement materials and special tools to work on this sort of pipe.
Mr.

is the only plumber I use. He is smart, quick, reliable and friendly. His pricing has been reasonable.

One thing
Benton Plumbers Provider Name Locked
to another as in every old house---but the work was done well and right. the repairman was attentive and thorough. He took each step at a time, and found each piece that needed repairs. He was clean, creative in finding solutions, and pretty laid back and philosophical about the time it would take to get it right.
