"These guys are the best. We use them frequently for all plumbing-related work, and we recommend them highly and frequently to people in need of a plumber. They are one of the few" contractors that we will recommend enthusiastically and without reservation. Everything is always done right. They've probably done work on our house over 30 times over the last 5 years -- drains, sump pumps, water heaters, exterior drainage, etc. -- and rarely if ever have we had to call them back out. Fast to respond. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Can't recommend them enough.

"I signed up for a $29 Big Deal for a Toilet Tune-up, knowing I had small toilet water tank supply valve leak and 5 year old plumbing that needed a look at. I asked the service rep (I" called first) if the special could work for all five toilets at $29 each, and she called me back and said maybe, that the technician would talk with me when he showed up. I said ok, and an appointment for a convenient time for me was made. The crew-- Mr.
and an apprentice, showed up on time. We had an initial discussion of what I wanted done and a walk around, which rapidly progressed from a $29 tune-up to 3 "major" internal part replacement "rebuilds" at $250 each, and, what I thought was an agreement to fix two water shut off valves (one confirmed leaking shut off valve and one possibly leaking shutoff valve), and minor tune-up on a 4th toilet tank (I had already paid for a BIG DEAL for one toilet, which was the fifth toilet). My main concern was the leaks, so I agreed to the $750 dollar estimate ($779 total bill with the $29 BIG DEAL), and commented several times I thought the estimate was pretty expensive but I was "assured" that the going rates were about $375 per toilet. The one obvious leaking valve was repaired, the other was not, even though I had asked for it be replaced and thought it was part of the deal. The three toilets did receive all new plumbing parts. For the most part, their mess was minimal (they used a drop cloth) and it was cleaned up, except for the Master Bathroom toilet closet where there are black
all over the wall either from a boot or from "old" toilet parts that may have been "tossed into a box" during disassembly and missed the box. Given the price available at the nearest hardware chain in for good quality kit systems to replace the same hardware (which was not yet showing catastrophic wear), I can deal with a little water in the tank and changed out the rigging myself, which I have done in other houses I lived in, for the price I was charged. Admittedly, I agreed to the price, but my focus was on getting the two valves replaced. But, only one valve was replaced, and the walls in one bathroom were blackened by something or someone other than me. So, that works out to be about $160 per toilet versus the $29 "tune-up" BIG DEAL, or about twice the cost of a good quality replacement kit. BUT, I did get one leak fixed!

"A very good experience. Called them and estimator came by around noon - I said I really wanted to get the job done ASAP and they were able to have
come around" 2 o'clock.
did excellent work throughout and was very efficient with his time, including about a 1/2 hour trip to pick up needed supplies. He made sure everything was finished well (all caulking, touchup painting) and was very courteous too, and asked me to come answer a couple of questions about how I wanted things to look when I finished. A very positive experience here and a very good deal with the price Angie's list offered.

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.

Heating & A/C, Plumbing

Most homes and apartments used to have steam heat radiators, but they can be noisy. Tired of the whistling, clanging and banging? Here’s how to make it stop.

frozen water, frozen faucet, bad water valve
Plumbing

One of the most common winter home problems is frozen pipes. Warming up the pipes is the easy part, but actually finding where the pipe is frozen can be hard.

copper piping
Plumbing

When temperatures dip below freezing, there's a chance your plumbing pipes could freeze. See if copper or PEX pipes stand up best to winter weather.

If you plan to leave a house vacant for the winter months, it's important to make sure your home is ready for the winter. Here's how to winterize a vacant home.

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.

There was a known problem in our sewer line that needed pipe lining. I called in June to request a quote. They said I had to schedule a video and clean out of the sewer first, which I did. This was scheduled quickly and the cleaning/video seemed to go fine. Then I called back to get the quote, and I was told it would be emailed to me. Over the next THREE MONTHS I repeatedly called back to get a quote. The person on the phone would say that they had given the request to the person who does the quotes, and that they would remind him again, but I never received anything. Eventually I had to go through another company. They were unable to use the video that had been done by

because it was taken from only one direction and didn't show the problem area well, so I had to pay *again* for another video. Furthermore the second company subcontracted to

didn't have a problem with the job/manpower, but whoever does the quotes/scheduling just couldn't be bothered to schedule it, or maybe they get paid more as subcontractors. Overall, it was a very frustrating ordeal.

came out promptly and gave us an estimate. He wasn't the low bidder, but was competitive, and we were impressed by his professionalism. He helped out with suggestions on how we could upgrade the rental property without spending more than rentals would recover. He agreed to pick up all materials (vanities, tile etc) from Home Depot for us.

did not nickel and dime us. He found and took care of several things that he/we hadn't expected with little, if any, additional charge. The work for the most part was well done, and if we were dissatisfied with something, he got his people to take care of it to our satisfaction. The apartment showed beautifully, afterward, and rented immediately. Overall we were very happy. There were some missed dates that meant we could not show as early as we wanted, therefore, the slightly lower rating on punctuality. We are doing another apartment now and have ask
