"Went very well. We always use
. They are always prompt, quick, and do the job right. They are friendly and describe what needs to be done before doing it. And" they clean up nice as well. For the work they do, I believe they charge fair rates. Once they leave, I rest assured. We have had
come out several times over the years, but never for the same problem twice.

"technician spent approx. 40 minutes on site. 15 minutes doing his job, 25 min. looking at his I-phone or in his truck. The checklist of maint. procedures on the receipt that I signed" had things checked off that he did not perform. I called office and told them and they said that they would schedule another tune up if I liked. Got a call from the dispatcher at approx. 5:30 the day of the second scheduled appt. saying that the tech. was running late due to an emergency and would be late (scheduled appt. time was after noon). Another scheduled appt. was for a week from that day in the AM ! This tech was great. As originally suspected this tech performed many more req"d tasks and was surprised when I told him that the original tech didn't perform half the tasks he did!

"
and his crew are always fun to have working on my yard. They work hard and clean up after themselves.
brings good listensing skills and" great ideas to the table which make him an unusal contractor. This is the third of five projects he is doing for me. Next spring he will complete the front yard and then in two years he will be putting in a soaking tub and deck for me. His work has always been superb and reliable. I would recommend him to anyone who needs work done.

The Angie's List Guide to Winter Maintenance

It's the time of year when the winter weather can take a toll. Follow this winter maintenance checklist to protect your home, your car and your health.

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.

radiator
Heating & A/C, Plumbing

Most homes and apartments used to have steam heat radiators, but they can be noisy. Tired of the whistling, clanging and banging? Here’s how to make it stop.

frozen water, frozen faucet, bad water valve
Plumbing

One of the most common winter home problems is frozen pipes. Warming up the pipes is the easy part, but actually finding where the pipe is frozen can be hard.

copper piping
Plumbing

When temperatures dip below freezing, there's a chance your plumbing pipes could freeze. See if copper or PEX pipes stand up best to winter weather.

If you plan to leave a house vacant for the winter months, it's important to make sure your home is ready for the winter. Here's how to winterize a vacant home.

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 plumber was prompt and did what he was supposed to do. He also gave me a quote for work he thought we may need in the future. Our water heater is over twenty years old and will need to be replaced very soon. I feel very satisfied with this experience.

Made an appointment, technician came to my house on time, he kept a stop watch in his hand and repeatedly asked us for money for the consultation, very unprofessional. When making the appointment over the phone, we were never informed that there would be a charge for having someone come to the house to give an assessment and price to install an overhead sewer. After about 35 minutes we finished up talking with the technician to get him to leave because we felt uncomfortable with the way he kept asking us for money, very strange and unprofessional.

Everything was done when they said it would be done and for the price they quoted. I am really impressed with the knowledge. I thought it would be a nightmare and have a lot of problems. It was great. These guys know what they are doing. No problems at all. The system works great.

The gentleman that came out was prompt, and professional. I showed him the broken flange, and after examining it, he said the pipe was at an angle so one side of the flange was higher than the other, and this

to the cracking. We went down to the basement, where he was able to find the pipe in question, and sure enough, it was (visible to the naked eye) not straight. He recommended replacing the pipe before the elbow so that he could ensure it was straight, rather than trying to fix an angled pipe under the floor of the bathroom. That solution seemed to make sense to me. He was done in about an hour and a half to two hours.
I would have no reservations using

It was a Big Deal purchase. They did a very good job. I was pleased with their service. There was no extra charge. There was only one individual. He was honest and truthful regarding our A/C unit. He recommended some services but was honest in stating that it would not probably change our cost and it probably would not be a good return on investment although that would be the next step that would be required and he suggested that we maintain what we have because this is more cost-effective to us at this time. We were very appreciative that he relayed to us what was actual and what was required as a suggestion. He was just very, very pleasant and personable. I would absolutely use them again.
