"I chose to
my home rather than fixing the plumbing problem because it was the better solution. It is useless to fix the problem when the" pipes are actually 50 years old. Sooner or later, another problem would appear and it would be a hassle to call another plumber again. Moreover, it would put me at ease knowing that the pipes are new and won’t burst anytime. The estimator came on time and showed a “can do” attitude. This was reassuring. The estimate came 30% less than the first company and the work was completed within 2 days instead of the 5 days the other company have promised. It was quality work. Yes, other company may match them but I
’t think they would be able to match their prices.

How to Avoid Common Plumbing Scams

Here are four of the most common plumbing scams to watch out for and how to avoid them.

Hiring a Plumber

When you need a plumber, especially for an expensive project for which you have time to plan, make sure you hire one who is fully qualified and licensed in your state. A plumber may be an apprentice, a journeyman or a highly qualified master plumber, depending on the level of training and experience.

First - NOT full septic tank - if that was the case you would be getting backup of sewage into the lowest drains in the house, and possible very slow flushing or refusal to drain out of the bowl - the opposite of your case.

Second - I assume you are the owner. If a renter or on a lease, this type of problem may be the responsibility of your landlord, depending on the terms of your lease or rental agreement.

OK - two possible situations here - low water in BOWL, or low water in TANK. I am assuming your toilet flushes OK, with adequate water to clean out the bowl, and that it is a typical type toilet with a tank sitting on the back of the bowl. If this is not the case and it is a designer toilet or looks like those at public restrooms (no tank), then the BOWL answers still apply if it is initially refilling OK, but if not enough refill water coming in at all then call a plumber.

First, low water in the toilet BOWL case. If the water in the toilet BOWL is low after flushing, I see four likely causes, in order of most likelihood -

1) the fill valve is not putting enough water into the toilet bowl. If you take the top off the tank, you will see a small hose (typically black plastic) coming from the fill valve (a vertical mechanism, usually at left side of tank, that the incoming water tube or flex hose connects to the bottom of on the bottom side of the tank). While the tank is refilling after a flush, a steady but not large flow of water flows through this fill tube and down into a vertical pipe or tube (usually brass or plastic and about 3/4 inch diameter, which stands almost full height of tank). The small tube puts water into this pipe, from where it flows into and refills the toilet bowl. This is also the overflow tube, which keeps the tank from overflowing if the fill valve fails to shut off. If the fill valve has a problem or the fill tube has a blockage, it may not be letting enough water into the bowl. Also, check the tube is actually pointed down into the overflow tube - if the clip came loose, rusted away or broke, then it may just be filling the toilet tank rather than the bowl. Check that a steady flow (will not be a real foreceful jet) of water is flowing out of this tube into the overflow pipe while the toilet tank is refilling. You should also see the bowl filling up at this time. If it come in but does not fill high enough because it does not run long enough, some fill valves have an adjustment - check fill valve manufacturer website for instructions. Others just have to be replaced - doable if you are handy at home repairs (see web videos on how to do it), or call a plumber for probably about $150-200 to replace fill valve (have him replace the flapper valve at same time if you get this done).

2) there is something like a rag or string caught in the trap (the waste passage within the toilet body itself) which is slowly wicking the bowl water down the drain - would be solved by a good snaking. If this is the case, the bowl will fill fully after flushing, but then slowly (typically many minutes to hours) drain down to just filling the start of the oval or round drain passageway where the waste passage starts to curve up into the toilet body.

3) blocked sewer vent pipe (which vents sewer gas and lets air into the sewer system so when you flush the traps in drains and toilets and such do not get sucked dry by the vacumn caused by the exiting flow. If this is the problem, then several drains in your house may have the same problem, or drain slowly. When you flush, the water will drain totally down the pipe and almost all the water in the bowl and trap will go down the drain too, typically with a gurgling sound for a few seconds at the end as the air seal is broken in the trap, then a small amount of water will flow back from the trap into the bowl, leaving you with water in the entrance curve to the trap but nowhere near normal height in the bowl - maybe not even enough to fill the entrance of the drain passage.

4) a crack in the toilet, letting water gradually leak out of the bowl onto the floor or into the subfloor. If this has been going on for long at all you should see water on the floor, or water coming out in the ceiling downstairs, or in the basement or crawl space under the toilet.

Case 2 - the problem is low water in the toilet TANK - since this is a sudden problem, two likely causes:

1)  the float arm has corroded or the float setting has moved. Look in tank for any broken part. You may have a black ball on the end of a metal or plastic arm connected to the fill valve (which is the part, normally at the left side of the tank, that the flexible or copper tubing comes into at the bottom of the tank), or it may be a sliding cylindrical float that slides up and down on the fill valve (typically all plastic) - see if it is broken or loose or alll corroded up (for the arm type). When you flush, this float hangs down (if lever type) or slides down the fill valve (cylinder type), opening the fill valve so fresh water comes in to fill the tank and bowl. As the tank fills it lifts this float, till at the proper elevation the bouyancy of the float shuts off the fill valve. If the setting on this float has changed then it will either cause the toilet to "run" continually because it is trying to overfill the tank (float shuts off at too high a level, so water is continuously flowing down into the overflow tube and into the bowl); or it will shut off too soon, causing only a partial tank fill. There are adjustments to adjust the float shutoff setting - typically an adjustment xxxx on the arm-type, and a slider stop clip on a small rod for the sliding type. See web videos on how to adjust this, or call a plumber.

2) your flapper valve (in bottom of tank, the part a chain or cord or rod connects to the flush handle, which opens it when you flush the toilet, leaks. If it leaks AND the fill valve is working, the tank level drops till the fill valve opens, then the tank refills. This repeats at intervals, with the tank refilling periodically even though it has not been flushed. May need new flapper valve or just a good wiping of the sealing surface to remove grit that is causin it to leak. If this is the problem you will have a slight flow of water into the bowl continually, and will probably see a slight ripple in the toilet bowl.

3) water is leaking out of the fittings or bolt holes on the bottom of the tank. If this is happening enough to make you notice low takn water level, the tank will refill periodically the same as if the flapper valve is leaking, plus you will have water on the floor and dripping off the bottom of the tank.

 

Fill valve and flapper valves each cost around $15 if you do it yourself (you can buy just replacement flapper for less if that is the problem and the matching seal is good, but that is rarely the case). A plumber call to replace both probably $150-200, ASSUMING your water shutoff valve (at the wall, under the tank, with a flex or copper tube coming fromit up to the toilet tank) will work.. If it will not shut off the flow of water, then add another $50-150 to replace that, depending on how it is plumbed and whether he has to cut into the wall to replace it (rarely required). If you do go and have a plumber do it, have both the fill valve and flapper valve (and flush handle, if aluminum or brass and corroded) replaced at the same time, as all tend to go out with age - every 10 years or so. You don't want to have to call the plumber to replace another part in just a year or two.

?

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!

Well , you've certainly started a debate that will endure forever , but personally , having worked with both products , PEX is a better product . Now granted , the 1st time i used it

I was not impressed , cause it leaked.......NOT because the product was at fault, it was because I did not understand how to use the product !

The trick to using Pex , is to make certain that the fittings seat, they MUST be pushed together with force, and if you do not push with force to get the seat to seal, it leaks .

Therefore , when using PEX , you have constantly to be aware of leaving room to make your connections -Properly !

The beauty of PEX is that it bends , it is flexible and decreases the labor factor ,although the connection costs are often 100-300 % higher than copper , but again , it can cut labor costs in half  and it is safer to work with,  NO FLAMEs!

Immediate and courteous communication; contacted me the moment I purchased an Angie's List deal. Very professional staff. I was pleased with how soon they could come out to my rental property. Technician did a great job and communicated with me and the tenants about arrival time. We will use this contractor again.

This was one of my biggest mistakes of my life (buying $200 worth of service by
Montross Plumbers Provider Name Locked
for $89 through Angie's List). I had purchased this "great deal" a week ago and had asked
Montross Plumbers Provider Name Locked
to install a recessed water box where my new refrigerator was going to be installed later the same day. I asked them for an approximate estimate over the phone and they told me they couldn't give me one until they showed up at my house. When the technician arrived at my house, he told me it would cost me $623. I told him that was very high for just installing a recessed water box. I then asked him what the breakdown for the parts and labor are going to be. He then told me he couldn't give me the breakdown and he had got the price from the price book that he was carrying with him and it is a fixed price that his company charges (he showed me his price book). I can't understand if the price is fixed, why they couldn't tell me the price when I had called them a week ago. When I told the technician I was going to leave my feed back on Angie's List about their high prices, he told me he did not want to do the job for me. I told him I really needed the work done that day before the installers for my new refrigerator showed up. I reminded him that I had partially paid for and arranged for this service a week ago and I did not think I could find another plumber within such a short notice for the same day. He refused to the work even when I told him I was going to pay for their unfairly high price (I called the Angie's List customer service while the technician was at my house and told them about the fact the technician was refusing to do the work. The Angie's List representative even heard the technician saying he was not going to do the work). The Angie's List customer care representative then gave me the name of several other Plumbing companies that were all "A" rated (
Montross Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was "B" rated before my rating). I called one of those companies and they were very professional and showed up at my house within an hour and they quoted a price of $368 for the same job that
Montross Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was going to do for $623. They completed the job to my total satisfaction and just in time before the installers for my refrigerator showed up. I am leaving an "A" rating for the other company who were so professional and with a much more reasonable price (they even waived their $49 service call fee!!). I WOULD NEVER DO ANY KIND OF BUSINESS WITH
Montross Plumbers Provider Name Locked
AGAIN. I guess there is a reason why their overall rating was "B" and not "A". From now on I am going to only use companies with an "A" rating on Angi's List.

Hessil answered the phone and said he would be out later in the afternoon around 4:00 or so.
Montross Plumbers Provider Name Locked
called at 3:50 PM stating he was on his way. He arrived at my house around 4:30. I showed him where the leak was and he got right to work. By around 5:10 he was finished. He replaced both the outer water outlet and the indoor shut-off valve. He showed me how it worked and he finished up. The work quality was very good. He was very professional and did a decent job. The cost of $230.00 less a $30.00 coupon I feel was excessive considering he was only here about 40 minutes. If the charge would have been around $125.00 I still think he would have made good money. That being said if the need came around I would call for his services in the future.

Appointment was scheduled for 8:30 so I told work I would be late. Plumber called around 8:30 to say he was almost there but showed up after 9:00. Not a big deal. He showed up looking like he had been on a bender and was not happy to be working. Reeked of cigarette smoke and constantly left for cigarette breaks. Had to get a utility sink put in which didn't seem like that big of a job so I surprised it cost over $400!! He had to reinstall water lines to the washing machine but somehow that got messed up. I called and left a message after 5PM and got a call back same day. Very good except whoever I talked to wasn't happy I asked to have someone else out but said he could have someone I have worked with in the past out. Next day wife gets a call saying someone is on the way and it is the same guy. She was told only he was in the area and the person on the phone had an attitude about it. Like we were out of line asking for another person. Seriously. Why is that an issue?? We had to get the work done quick so he did come and fix the problem although he wasn't very happy to be there. I have had work done by them many times in the past and they always did a great job and I always felt the prices were fair when done by other plumbers. I referred friends to

. This time we felt like we were treated like we were the problem and probably won't be using them again or making any referrals. My reviews reflect past experiences too so I gave them better reviews than if I just did it based on this one experience.
