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.

Fireplaces, Chimney Sweep, Plumbing

Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

If you notice water leaking from your shower, finding the cause can take some time. Learn how to trace the source and save some cash.

So you're in the bathroom minding your own business when you notice, ahem, seepage around the base of the toilet. It's not human error, but an issue with the john. The good news: It could be a relatively simple, inexpensive fix.

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.

He was very courteous and prompt on time as scheduled. Was very respectful of my home and wore these little shoes socks to keep my floors clean.I have had a lot of service people do work for me in the past, the work that was performed by the plumber was very top notch and professional looking. After the job was complete he cleaned his work area and it actually looked better and more clean when he was done that before he started. I am very impressed. The estimate they gave me was exactly in line with the final cost of the work that needed to be done. there were no surprises. I would highly recommend their company to everyone that I know as they were honest professional and trustworthy. I will definitely use them in the future for any plumbing needs I might have.

was once again a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, courteous, and open. There was a delay in him getting to us, but that was a result of the terrible winter weather. Once we agreed when he would come, he was prompt. Pricing was very good and fair. Will definitely use him again for my plumbing needs.

The main sewer line for my entire house was blocked for 3 days and 6 gallons of drain cleaner did nothing to open it. About 10:30 AM on 2/24/2015 I called

and was put on the schedule for that afternoon and somebody would call me about 30 minutes before the technician would arrive. As promised, I received the call saying the technician was on the way.

went straight to the main line cleanout and got the auger going. After about 30 minutes or so, he said the bit was about 100 feet down the line and all of a sudden, the water that had been standing in the pipe for 3 days immediately disappeared and he asked me to turn on all of the faucets and flush all of the toilets which I did. Problem solved.

will get my business should I ever need plumbing services in the future. I thought the total price charged was very reasonable compared to what prior similar services have cost me. I had initially called another plumbing company based on their advertisements but they were closed because of a couple inches of ice we had overnight although their phone recording said they would come but there would be an additional $300 charge.
