"I was extremely pleased to find Mr.
who could provide quality services at a tremendous value compared to other contractors. I received 3" bids that ranged from 50 to over 100% the bid by Mr.
. Now, there is a reason why he can do this at such a reasonable price, and Mr.
ensured from the beginning that we have reasonable expectations. First and foremost, he has another full time job as a school teacher and does this on the afternoons and weekends (save Sundays). Therefore, he has a wait at times and larger jobs (like mine) can stretch out over a week. However, he has been doing this work for over 20 years and owns most of his own equipment. Second, starting the work is very much dependent on the weather (can't do when ground is sopping wet or frozen), so if there is a long string of rain, it can delay jobs. So we saw this as a desirable trade off. We had no trouble being flexible around the work start date or how long it took, and therefore we were able to get this quality work done at a tremendous value. There are a number of other advantages of working with Mr.
. First, he essentially does all the work himself - that way you know there are no subs or temporary laborers that might cut corners. Second, he is meticulous and takes pride in getting it down right - analyzing the grading multiple times along each run, using the proper quality PVC pipe, gluing all the connections thoroughly, and making sure the connections to the downspout all appear clean and straight. Third, he is clearly an honest, ethical, friendly guy who is a pleasure to have around the house. My house was a really big job to handle the drainage around a 3000 sf ranch home (a lot of roof) requiring four long runs of PVC. There was a little delay getting started due to rain, but his wife who runs the office of the business was very communicative. The job took longer than he expected I think and to make sure he completed it within the week he started, he worked into the night on a Saturday with large spot lights. Prior to getting this work done, our basement sump pump ran constantly, even when it hadn't rained in weeks. Now we only hear it go off only occasionally - which is incredibly reassuring. In summary, I highly recommend Mr.
if you can be flexible with your start date, and don't mind it taking a little longer. In the end, the job will be done right or better at a much lower price than many competitors.

"
used a directional boring machine to bore under the driveway and garage slab to bring a new waterline into utility room in the basement." The crew also had to hand dig around the water meter and around electrical service and cable utilities crossing the front yard. The job was completed in less than 5 hours and use of directional boring machine required no breaking of the concrete garage slab or portions of the driveway that would have been necessary in competitor's estimates. Competing estimates were about $500 less but required two days to complete and required breaking concrete garage slab in two areas as well as breaking a portion of the driveway. In this case I think it was well worth the extra $500 for the less intrusive repair method and the timeliness of completing the job.
's crew back filled the hand dug areas in the front yard and carefully replaced the sod and cleaned up the interior and exterior areas of the home. Overall outstanding work by
and his crew.

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.

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.

This has taken me a bit of time to express what I felt about this plumber. We arrived home to our house after two weeks and our heat had shut down and pipes frozen. We were so upset. Did not have a plumber and picked up our weekly town Money Saver booklet and called two plumbers. The first plumber gave us outrageous costs for a weekend and also said he did not know when he could get there. My husband is almost 90 with

's disease and heart disease and the situation was terrible. I called the second plumber who was

and Heating and talked with a very nice man. After explaining the situation, he assured me that they would be there as soon as possible. They not only came, but were so courteous and good at what they do. Promptly had us up and running to get us through the day and headed back on Sunday to finish the job. They were so nice to my husband and explained every thing to us as they went along and did the repairs. The following is what has earned them an A rating. 1. They came when promised. 2. They did an outstanding job with the repairs. 3. They were extremely trustworthy in our home. 4. They were so patient and kind to our 8 little dogs! 5. They did the job and made sure that everything was to our liking before leaving the last time. 6. They were extremely fair to us with the price. 7. The plumber was so nice that he fixed a few things in our house that we needed. 8. Fantastic with seniors. Very patient with repeated questions and answers. I am sure that I missed a few things. We were blown away by the comfort he gave us in feeling that we were in good hands. We are going to have him come back in several weeks to put in new toilets. I cannot say enough. We now have a new plumber to call our own and will enjoy them for years. It's so nice to have someone you can trust and we deeply thank them for helping us with our emergency. ,

This is one of the best local companies with which I have dealt over the years. They adhered to all specifications in the contract and completed the work in a timely manner.

I purchased a $39 for $100 worth of plumbing coupon. I wanted to replace the
Munford Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
tub plumbing fixture. Did that two years ago on an identical tub with the identical fixture, and the licensed plumber charged around $100 to do it, including valve install. I recently had another quote to do the same job for $150 (again, licensed plumber). So I was flabbergasted when
Munford Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
came in, whipped out an iPad without comment, and then told me it will be $579 (yes, five HUNDRED ) to do it. When I expressed surprise, he said well, that's just our price. I commented that they were three--almost four times--the price of others. So, rather than
Munford Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
the the value of the $39, I asked if he would just install the drain outlet on the tub (that means, unscrew existing, add plumbers' putty, and rescrew in the new one). I had two of them so I thought, well, at least I will get some value for the angle's list cost. He informed me that he could charge that as a minor adjustment---$119 minimum. I asked if they have ANY service that is $100..he told me no. I just read another person's review of this company, and I could have written it! Same experience. I was aghast at these prices. I did write to them yesterday, but as of this afternoon, did not hear back. Angie's List has escalated as a requested refund. With a name like
