"Good work, timely, and professional. I am holding back on reviewing the Beaver disposal. It is very powerful but has shaken loose from it's mounting once" and had to be reinstalled. Sounds very strong when used and is very nosy, shakes the sink. So waiting to see if it tears itself off again. For sure it does the job quick and complete.

and his son came on time and replaced the broken gate valve on my water heater. I also asked them to replace the gate valve on the main water" shut off. Both were about 12 years old. They worked clean, neat, and efficiently. The cost was also competitive. I would call them again for any plumbing issues.

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 had the kitchen sink faucet replaced. They were on time and did a good job.
The reason I gave B in price:
--------------------------------------
I purchaded the $100 for $200 big deal. If you buy this deal there is a service call fee of $59 even if you get the work done from them. So effectively the deal is only $41 off and not $100 off. If I had not used the deal they would have waived off service call fee if they did the work.
The kitchen sink faucet change is $283. This is a standard cost of this company according to the chart the person showed me. In
the end, I ended up paying a total of $242.
$283 (std faucet change charge) - $100 (for the big deal) + $59 (service call fee) = $242
I will admit they had mentioned to me before hand that there will be a service charge because I am using the big deal. When I
had asked if they had an estimate for faucet change, the person scheduling the call did not know it. Plus they wanted to see the work before deciding if the faucet was the only issue.
Regarding if I will use the provider in future:
----------------------------------------------------------
There is only yes/no answer to choose. They did professional work so I mentioned "Yes". But it is a "May Be" depending on the work and cost of the work.

The plumber arrived and checked the old pump and explained why it was no longer working. Gave us a list of different pumps to select from and called to schedule a date for the installation. The plumber was very knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. He answered all of our questions and was not trying to sell us anything we didn't need. I will certainly use them again.

I chose this company because I've used them in the past. He fixed a toilet and performed a plumbing inspection required by my homeowners insurance. He did a great job. He was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend him, and I'll use him in the future.
