"I needed grading, landscaping, a path made in concrete.
was very honest, professional, and helpful with his suggestions. I did not use him for the work because" his company does not do concrete work or some of the landscaping I needed done. I will definitely contact
for grading and drainage work if needed in the future.

"A neighbor of ours with whom we are on very friendly terms mentioned that water was running off from our property directly into their crawlspace. Upon studying the issue, we realized" that the old drainage system installed by previous owners was no longer functioning, and the runoff was not being managed in any sensible way. We had a landscaping company try to solve the problem, but it was too much for them to handle. We got a handful of other estimates, but people were unable to do the work because of the large number of older trees in our property.
said they would be able to handle the work and would also be able to tie in the output of all our sump pumps (we have three) into the new system. They were also able to carry the exit point of the pipes all the way out to the near the street where it would no longer go anywhere near our neighbor's crawlspace. When the came to do the work, they completed it quickly and neatly. Burying the new pipes involved digging up quite a bit of the yard, but they were very careful with the grass and either replaced all the grass they had pulled up or put sod down. It had been my intention to take a bunch of pictures of where they had put the pipes so we would know where they were for future reference, but they repaired the yard so well that within less than a week I was no longer able to find the places where they had worked. They had actually also put some sod down in an area near where they worked that had been damaged from unrelated work, thus actually leaving our yard in better shape than they found it in! Since the work was completed, we have had several major storms, and our neighbor happily reports that they are no longer getting runoff from our property in our crawlspace. We are also no longer getting water pooled up near our downspouts. All in all, our drainage problems have been virtually eliminated, which is quite a challenge since we are the top of a hill. There was really only one problem. On the day the work was originally scheduled to begin, we noticed that there were no "Miss Utility"
on the property. When we called them, we talked to an owner of the company who said something like, "I was really hoping you were going to call." They were very apologetic and explained that they had had an email system problem and had completely lost our order and had no way to contact us to tell us that there was a problem. They said this had never happened before in their business and were committed to making it right. I was understanding with them and rescheduled the work for one week later (we had originally had a longer lead time), and without my asking, they offered us a 5% discount. While losing our order completely and not having a way to contact us is pretty bad, I believe them when they say this was an anomaly, and I think they did ultimately make it right for us. If it weren't for that, I'd have rated them A's in all categories. But when all is said and done, they did the work very well, took great care in making sure it was done right, and left the yard in better shape than they found it in. I would have no hesitation to recommend their work to anyone, and I suspect they will not be likely to have that email mistake again. In fact, the neighbor who was suffering from our previous runoff problems may hire them to do some work on their property as well.

"Went great. From start to finish, they did what they said they were going to do,
up a plan, came on time, carried out the plan, went above and beyond to finish" out a little roof over a well, and did a high quality job. The owner has a strong work ethic and integrity. If everyone operated like this, we wouldn't need Angie's List! They returned later to deliver dirt that they had promised.

Experts warn of environmental crisis as water supplies shrink and usage rises. Conservation is key to avoiding widespread drought.

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.

Because this was an emergency (leaking water heater in our attic) and

The supervisor,
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
, is obnoxious, unconcerned and unreasonable.
Here's what happened: I have a slopsink in the basement that for unknown reasons, keeps backing up with sewage every couple days. Unable to troubleshoot the issue on my own, I called
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
. I was attracted by the price (which is misleading, by the way).
1: A guy arrives and tells me that he needs access to pipes behind a wall, and there should have been an access panel. He was right, there should have been. He heads to another job, while I cut an access panel. He was supposed to return within 30-40 minutes, but after nearly two hours, it got late and I had to reschedule.
2: A couple days later, a new guy arrives, and makes use of the new access panel I cut. He snakes my main drain in one direction, then the other direction. This, in their opinion, counts as two pipes and thus doubles the prices, with tax, to 110.60. Fine. Just so long as he fixed my problem, which he assures me he did.
3: Over the next two days, sewage is backing up into the sink again. I call them and they send out the same plumber. He runs the water, nothing backs up in that moment, and he says the issue must have taken care of itself, and leaves.
4: The issue had NOT taken care of itself, as more sewage continued to back up into the sink over the next few days.
5: I call them back again, and a new plumber arrives. He has a new idea for how to fix the issue, but says the company intends to charge me again for their services. I object. I had called them for one problem: a sink that was backing up, and that problem was never solved. I'm told to call the office. I do. I speak with
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
. He was very rude, cutting me off multiple times and shouting at me. He was very obnoxious, repeating the same sentence over and over again. He kept saying that they fixed the problem. I kept asking, "If you fixed the problem, why would I keep calling you, and why do I have sewage in my sink?" To which, he would respond, "We fixed the problem."
6. I asked his name (
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
) but he refused to identify himself further, and then hung up on me.
I will obviously never use this company again. And I strongly urge anyone reading this not to use them either. Find someone else to handle your issue... ANYONE else! They don't deserve your business. And there's a strong likelihood that you will be charged more than you expect for work that may or MAY NOT actually have solved anything!
I'm left agitated, 110 dollar poorer, and I STILL have sewage in my sink!

The project went very well.

, the salesperson, was very knowledgable and took a consultant's approach to the house. He noticed every detail about the slope of the yard, the gutter system, the existing flow of water and the surrounding trees and plants. He devised a very good and efficient way to move water away from the house and eliminate the
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
of indoor flooding and foundation damage. The company also built a stone retaining wall which is not only functional, but actually enhances the look of the house from the front! His workers worked hard to dig 4 foot deep trenches and put the dug-up portions back so as not to disturb the grass growth. Overall, they did an excellent job and I would hire them again for any complex landscaping or drainage projects.

Everything went great. Ed was able to do exactly what was needed in order to get all the upstairs plumbing rerouted to the basement. As we were shopping for a couple hours that day, Ed did all the work needed and that was asked for. We could not have asked for better service and price.

A gentleman came out to my property and was very knowledgeable about my issue with the landscaping and drainage and how it is being effected.
He came up with a great solution by proposing to build a retaining wall and yard drainage around my front and side yard.
They crew came out earlier than expected and started right away.
They were very kind and helpful.
Despite my plants and garden in the side yard, they were very neat and careful.
They cleaned up very well and it looked amazing.
The solution seems to be working great and I have had no problems with anything.
The best bang for the buck by far. I had 2 other estimates and
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
impressed me with the expertise. They also beat out the other contractors by quite a bit.
I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to have drainage, retaining walls, or foundation repair done.

I contracted

of
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
to come do a few landscaping jobs around my house. At first I was immediately impressed. I
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
up a contract and we both agree to the sub-projects and a price of $1,600. I thought the price was high but thought that he work would align to the cost.
The first 2 days seemed to go well although
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
was sick and he left most of the work up to his two employees.
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
would leave for significant periods to time and then return to provide additional direction. On day 3 he was unable to come so he asked for add'l time which I was happy to accommodate. They returned later in the week and continued. Towards the end of the job I performed a few inspections and had to point out obvious flaws such as throwing mulch over-top of weeks on my side yard. I started to get the sense that the work was less than stellar.
A few days after they finished we had a hard rain and I was able to see the expanse of how poor the job really was. In most cases they barely de-weeded my landscaping and simply threw mulch over-top of weeds. In one area they put down less than 1/2" of mulch so that a door would clear rather than remove the existing mulch and granite to get the appropriate depth of mulch.
One project was to deal with the weeds underneath my play-scape. I had roughly 4" of pea gravel they they were supposed to remove, place down plastic/weed
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
and then replace the rocks. Instead, his team removed about 1/2" of rocks, threw down plastic and called it a day. Needlesstosay weeds were growing back literally within 5 days.
Finally he and his team installed a french drain with crushed granite. I warned him that the water flow was extreme but he insisted that he knew what he was doing. Nevertheless the next hard rain washed the drain and ALL of the gravel away. I also discovered that they didn't completely put down plastic to serve as a weed
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
. Again, spotty work.
This is Landscaping 101 and hardly appropriate for the fees they charged me.
I called
West Allis Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
with my issues and to my surprise he agreed to fix them. He came out and review the work and agreed that it wasn't done right. He even said he would personally do the work to get it fixed. He then missed 2 scheduled appointments and stopped returning my phone calls altogether. To make matters worse I rearranged my schedule to match his which ended up costing me more time and money.
