"Excellent. I called Mr.
at 9pm on a Saturday night about my hot water heater and he returned my call within 15mins. I told that the water" heater was leaking around the top seam (not around the pipe connections), the bottom around the seam and at the element covers. I told him the water heater was very old and needed to be replaced. He told me that if I could purchase the water heater on the next day, Sunday, let him know and he would pick it up and install on Sunday. He picked up the water heater the next day, Sunday, and installed the same day. Mr.
has provided plumbing services for my home several times and I am always pleased with his work. He is very reliable and honest. If you ask him a question, he explains what he is doing and why. He does not elevate the charges for unnecessary work, and explains why it is not needed. I recommend his services.

did an excellent job. In addition to fixing the crack, he did some extra work to straighten out the drain line that the original builder" did a bad job on. Above and beyond my expectations.

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.

Normally I always use Angies List, but this time I used the plumber that my long time handyman called to do the work,
Big Stone Gap Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and Sons. I did not realize that the $2300 charge was exorbitant. The price was quoted before doing the 6 hours of work (2 men). The work seemed fine and my handyman repaired the holes in the side of the house. The second visit on 10/31 was for an unrelated leak. They removed the toilet and replaced the ring. I didn't find out until the third visit that the plumbers used the same rotting toilet bolts when re-bolting the toilet. The plumber lied to
Big Stone Gap Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, his boss, and said that I told them to use the old bolts. Really???

We were out of town when my handyman checked the house on November 12th and found water leaking just as it was before the toilet was repaired. I felt I had no choice but to tell the same plumber to correctly find the leak. After making 3 holes in the bed rock of my house, they found that the water was coming through a cracked outside electrical outlet. The outside sprinkler water was going right through the outlet into my house. This was probably going on for several months or more. Upon my return a week later I was presented a with bill for $1980. The plumbers probably worked a total of 8 hours for that. I tried to negotiate the price for the last to visit down to $1000, accepting the price of the
Big Stone Gap Plumbers Provider Name Locked
bill of $2300. The hourly rate was astronomical.
Big Stone Gap Plumbers Provider Name Locked
would not agree .His excuse was, "Our truck says, 'We do not charge by the hour'." I gave him one week and told him I would then "tell all" on Angies List. It's been over two weeks and I haven't heard from him.
PS My handyman no longer recommends this company.

Office staff was excellent. The plumber showed up on time and immediately went to work. He installed both toilets quickly. Did a great job with calking and cleaning up and when finished removed the old toilets. The plumber was friendly and answered any questions we had. A complete professional.

It is certainly refreshing to call for service, have them contact you almost immediately, schedule an appointed time, and for them to show at said time. It is even more reassuring that

hires well-informed and honest folks. My self-diagnosed plumbing problem was incorrect and that is what the company told me. I appreciate that and will contact them again for true plumbing issues!!

I was living with slow drains for couple years,
after being ripped off by a series of underground companies previously.
I was paralyzed by fear from previous experiences.
but
Big Stone Gap Plumbers Provider Name Locked
&
Big Stone Gap Plumbers Provider Name Locked
of Clogbusters have restored my faith that good people
and good companies exist in the plumbing/building trades.
Clogbusters Big Deal via Angie's List got the camera inspection for reasonable price.
They then let me do some excavation to save money,
then came back and hydrojetted all underground lines.
They still honored the Big Deal rate,
and the savings has more than paid for Angies List membership.
Also note, the Big Deal was for sewer pipe cleaning,
but Clogbusters honored the deal for my septic drain field.
Another plus is even though they're based in Hillsboro,
and I live in Damascus, there was no issue with my location.
Cannot stress enough how impressed I am with Clogbusters.

were very positive and straight forward with what was being done. First two days had the same crew, on the third day a new crew member came with them, this person didn't want to follow instructions! While removing Tank on one toilet it somehow was damaged and

replaced it with no problem. One water line was left disconnected in the wall behind the refrigerator and when water was turned on, it was quickly realized and the issue was corrected. Crew cleaned up behind themselves each day. Very impressed and would recommend
