" prepared the most comprehensive and understandable bid we have every seen. We knew exactly what was going to do." (we've done several remodeling jobs in this and earlier homes; so we have a fair idea of what constitutes a good bid specification.) The crew was great: prompt, hard working, and personable. (If you were in a crawl space working for many days, could you say the same.) The crew took great care to minimize any damage or dirt coming into the house. This was really important, since they had to access the crawl space through a fairly long run from the garage, thru the laundry room, a hallway, the master bedroom, the master bath, and finally to the crawl space entrance in the master closet. The only nit was the 7th day of work when the crew only had four hours of work left. management called the crew away to handle an "emergency", and they really mystified us -- still does. Aside from that and their employees provided excellent service at a very fair price, especially considering everything they had to do. I highly recommend this company to anyone who has a home with drainage issues.

"Without him, we would have had no idea what was needed or how to do it, but it turned out the task was something we could easily do ourselves with his clear instructions." We will definitely contact him again when we have a larger job.

Find solutions to various household sewer problems including drain pipe replacement, using chemical drain cleaners and how to fix a clogged drain.

Few kitchen appliances get as much use as the garbage disposal. And over the years, common issues such as jamming and leaking can occur. However, a disposal not operating properly or maintained can break down and cause plumbing issues - leading to costly repairs.

You'll need this if you install a basement bathroom.

Take off the lid to the tank and check inside.  There should be a small hose going into a larger pipe near the middle of the tank right next to the flapper.  When you flush the toilet water squirts from that hose into the pipe.  If it isn't in place put it back so that water goes down that pipe once again.  This is what refills your bowl.  If water does not come out of the little hose check to see if it is kinked or blocked.  You can take it off and blow air through it.  Don't worry, it's only clean water that goes through the hose.  If it is clear and water does not come out of the short pipe where it attaches on the flush valve then there is a clog in that valve and it will probably need to be replaced.  These are $10-20 at any home improvement store and even Wal-Mart.  The instructions are simple and you can do it yourself in about 15 minutes.  Check the washer on the supply hose to the toilet while it is off to replace the flush valve.  If it is old or worn replace the hose as well.  It is cheap insurance of only a few dollars which is a lot cheaper than a failed hose or washer causing water to leak.


If you don't feel comfortable replacing the fill valve, if it is needed, a handyman can do it fairly cheap.  Whereas a plumber or other contractor will have a minimum charge of $100-200 a handyman might do it for about $50.

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!

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.

Drain Pipe Installation reviews in West Allis


scheduled an appointment for the estimate and was here promptly. The estimate was reasonable. He's a busy guy (a good sign), so there was some time before the work started. The crew completed the project within the time expected and according to plan. I have recommended his service to others.
- Charles S.

The job was more difficult for them than they anticipated it to be. The drain pipe was 4 inches away from our line.
So they couldn't use the machine that goes in through the drain pipe itself. Yet, they were prepaired, had to do more labor- but kept me in the know and was verry nice about it! I liked the fact they ...More were a family business.
- Mark F.

This is the third time we have used this company for basement leaks. Previously they had worked on the crack in the walls with resultant leaks with heavy rains. the owner inspected the job and submitted a fair offer. He was also willing to redue previous work they had done five years earlier. We were scheduled out about 2 ...More months and a check for 1/2 the job was written. At about the time of the proposed start of the job, I spoke with who was responsible for scheduling. He stated that he wanted to keep the guys working outside and that he would schedule us for a rainy day. A month passed and no rainy days at least when we were available. Meanwhile, everything had been moved around the basement making room for their work. Finally after speaking with and insisting on a definite date, he came through and the date was set 5 days later. To 's credit, he apologized for the delay and stated that he would not be scheduling again for any rainy days for inside jobs. Everyone would be given a specific start date. The job was completed in a little over a day. Excellent work, cleanup and punctuality.
- Larry M.

i needed advice for a few concerns around my house. called and spoke to scheduler who was very helpful and said they could fit me in that same day. technician arrived on time and we discussed my potential projects. he said although he could do what i was asking for, it wasn't really necessary and he didn't want me waste money. i really ...More appreciate that! he gave me several options for another project and wrote down the estimate and brand (which i knew to be the best brand available) he would provide. advised me about upgrading a problematic faucet. company has been around for a long time and i can see why :)
- sharon H.

was great about coming out (twice) to consult with me about the scope of the work. He kept me updated a few weeks out from the project, then called a few times before the work started to let me know that we were still on schedule. He would tell me when he was going to call me, then he would actually do it! Wow, how often does ...More that happen? We had a little communication gap the morning he came but in fairness he did try to call me that morning and my phone is programmed to not ring that early. It turned out to be fine and everyone was very polite (with the exception of some grumpiness on my part initially).
The two men that were working this job were very polite and conscientious and seemed very knowledgable. They cared about what they were doing and wanted to do it right. They added the new window well at my request once they got on the job and then decided that it needed to be a larger one than the one they brought out and came back the next day to put that in.
Having foundation work done is never fun and can be stressful when you have water coming in your basement. These guys made it about as good an experience as it could be. Not a fun way to spend money but at least I felt like I was in good hands.
I gave them a B on the price but I'm not sure if it is a good price or not. The reality is that no one wants to spend money on stuff like foundation work and maybe the price rating should have been an "A". I got one other bid and it was a tad lower but the other guy was so abrasive that I decided that I didn't want him in my home. Both companies had a good reputation but If I am going to give someone my hard-earned money, I want it to be to someone nice! I would highly recommend !

Owner is very knowledgeable.
Trenching and installation of French drains went well as did cutting through , replacing valves and installing additional heads.
A few issues were communication with owner following above listed work as he had a gutter company come and install downspout (they did a great job) but never ...More knew when (or if) they would come. Other issue was their placement of sod over the trenches. Yard is pretty bumpy, but next summer will tell if it smooths out after grass grows. Also not sure if basins are at the correct level. grandkids would probably have a problem running around yard due to high and low spots.
All in all I think they did what I wanted. Time will tell. Pretty sure draining issue is fixed.
- Alden H.

Excellent quality work - very pleased! The project manager was very good and the workers did a fine job! Price was at the top end, but the outcome of the job supported the cost for us.

Getting to contract was much more difficult than we've experienced with all other services. We had to speak directly with the owner about getting to ...More acceptable contract terms - a target start date, target completion date, agreement of completion criteria - as the initial contract was too open-ended and provider-favorable at the start. We did get to contract, but came close to walking away Recommend that the owner take a look at the contracts that other services provide and to not treat customers like they are going to cheat him from the start.

We would let them bid on more work for us, but would definitely look around for a provider that is easier to do business with.
- Gary S.

came out and assessed my situation. He took the time to listen to my needs and asked questions to help make a recommendation. He proposed an idea that I had not considered for my sewer tie in. Several years earlier I waterproofed the foundation and I really did not want to disturb that work. I also had landscaping around ...More the house that would be ruined. suggested that he could drill (horizontal bore) under the house. This would keep the about 10 feet away from the house. This method cost a little more, but was well worth it. After the drilling, he popped a hole in the basement floor and slid in the pipe. Very professional, prompt and courteous. They also cleaned up very well.
