"
came back and replaced all the parts in the tank of the toilet [ using parts I had previously purchased]. He said there would be no charge" as he felt bad about having to come back. Although I had originally thought the price was high, it goes to show that you get what you pay for! Where can you find a plumber who returns at no charge, and does professional work with a smile! I highly recommend
and Son!
was also very knowledgeable regarding my
equipment. Thanks again

"I had tried making the repairs myself, but was unable to fix problem. Several high water bills later I decided to check Angie 's List for plumbers. After reviewing" CDS comments and their special deal on the labor I decided to give them a try. I was very impressed with the quick call back. The young man arrived on time and was very professional. He explained what was wrong and made repairs by replacing the supply tube, fill valve and flapper. Job took approx 30 mins to complete. Great job! !!

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.

Technician was prompt and very professional. He let me know what he was doing and why. RotoRooter is substantially more expensive (3x) than other other local services but can come same day. This is our 4th time with RotoRooter over a 20 year period and have complete confidence in their service.

I live in a new construction town-home. My neighbors (in the same building) had a problem with their toilet drain getting clogged and the waste water backing up and leaking under the toilet and into the bathroom floors. Roto-Rooter (who diagnosed their problem) told me that it was because of a construction error. Not wanting to have to completely tear out my bathrooms like they did, I called

to give me an estimate on checking to see if my home suffered from the same construction error.
When

(I'm so bad with names - I think his name was
Johnstown Plumbers Provider Name Locked
) arrived, I explained what I wanted. He told me that the "construction error" I described was not actually a construction error and that checking for that situation would not accomplish anything. He gave me helpful advice on what might cause the problem the neighbors had and told me what to look out for.
He was at my house for maybe 10 minutes, got along well with my dogs, was polite and kind (and not condescending), gave advice that made sense, and charged me nothing. It was a very positive experience and I will definitely call them next time I need a plumber.

The install took about 4 hours, which was about 2 hours longer than expected. Was very thorough and made sure that everything was working properly before leaving the job site.

His service was prompt and friendly. He showed up on time and his work was professionally done. He cleaned up after the job. I found his prices very reasonable. I have hired him many times to make plumbing repairs in my present and previous home. I have had some difficult and unique plumbing problems and he always was able to fix them properly--even the mistakes made by another plumber. I trust him and his crew and will call him again for any plumbing issues that I have.

originally quoted me to replace my AC unit and/or furnace in May when the evaporator coil started to leak. At that time,
Johnstown Plumbers Provider Name Locked
refilled the unit with freon and told me it could last all summer since the leak was small. He also told me that his quote was reasonable and he encouraged me to get competing bids. He also offered to just replace the evaporator with a new coil that could later be upgraded to the new refrigerant if I wanted to save money. He really did map out all the options for me. The AC did last another 5 months unit the end of October. During that time, I got quotes from at least 4 other HVAC companies.

original price quote was about $1000 cheaper than the next best quote for identical equipment. Due to the way my house is insulated, I needed a high efficiency furnace. Unlike the other contractors,

price premium for the 95% unit was very reasonable. Also, they included the upgraded communicating thermostat where others had that as a $400 upgrade. They arrived on time and did a professional installation. Their installers were very nice people who have worked for

for many years. The new unit (a

Well, he was here for almost 2 hours and charged us for 2 hours @ $150 and $25 for materials for a total of $325. It might just be a little Midwest mentality, however, I know our plumber from back in Indiana would have been able to do this leak for probably under $100. A bit too expensive we thought. He was very responsive to my wife's call however. I was out of town but returned before the work was completed. Did offer us some advice on a couple other issues which he needed to get parts for and said he would call before he returned. Well, figured it was worth my time to run to Home Depot and do the fixes myself. Wrote a check then left him a message and pretty much wrote it off as a learning experience.

Fantastic. We woke up the morning of the service with no hot water. Called
Johnstown Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and they had a serviceman at our door within an hour to see what the problem was. Our water heater was shot. I also asked him to check out our sump pump as I had a suspicion is wasn't functioning. Both the water heater and sump pump were replaced by early afternoon of the same day we called. The technician also showed me exactly what was wrong with both units so there was no question in my mind what was needed.
Early this evening we had a problem with our gas heater. Called
Johnstown Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, a serviceman called back within a half hour and we made arrangements for him to perform a check up on our heater tomorrow morning.
Maybe we've been lucky with the quick and efficient service, but I don't think it's luck, I think these guys know what great service means.
By the way, they do great work as well.

The management was responsive and quick to offer the service call. They gave me a window as to when the plumber would be available and called as soon as they knew when he would be arriving. The service person was very courteous and professional. I didn't get any other estimates- although their price was a little higher than I expected, but I did like the fact that they were quick to respond and completed the job within an hour.
