".I had a very stubborn backyard that would hold water after every rain.
came over to evaluate the yard and provide an estimate. Other drainage companies I had" contacted wanted to do much larger/complex/more expensive work that I couldn't afford. Lucky for me,
came over on a day where it was actually raining pretty hard and he was able to see exactly how and where the water was flowing and pooling in the yard. Because of the unique grade of my yard,
was able to save me money by coming up with a custom plan for draining the yard. He also used the excess dirt from digging the new drainage system to re-landscape parts of the yard, including mulching and re-shaping the earth around my trees to look much nicer -- at no extra charge. The river rocks used to assist in drainage in the low part of the yard added a nice aesthetic. Quick turnaround time, especially impressive as they continued to work in inclimate weather (snow storm!) to get the job done. The Angie's List 10% coupon was also very helpful in staying within my budget.

"I can't recommend
enough. I had attempted to have this work done by another company and that company left me high and wet.
" came in providing a complete review of our drainage needs, as well as a review of the work done by the other company.
provided me with an excellent recommendation for correcting our drainage problems and even gave me a credit for some of the unfinished work from the earlier contractor. Our job was a three to four day job and was very fairly priced. The typical problem for outside work this time of year was the weather. Unfortunately for
the weather just kept pushing them back. However something very unexpected occurred during these delays;
kept showing up and doing anything that they could do that would keep the job moving forward without damaging my yard or diminishing the quality of the work. I really have not worked with a company that was this determined to do the job right with the least amount of delay possible. I am sure this job ended up costing
more than they bid but there was never a complaint or a question about the proposed cost. They were very clear that a bid is a bid and they would do whatever it takes to delivery a quality product and at the proposed price. I am now looking for other drainage issues that I may have just to have these guys take care of it for me. It is rare to find a company that does such good work and rarer still to find one you can trust completely. I highly recommend
for any drainage solutions that you need.

"When the HVAC men came to check the unit he found it to be in perfect conditions, only checked the unit outside and said it would email the bill, that never came. Once I called the" company they sent it by email with a list of things that were done, while he was in the attic I was also there and I did not see him doing anything to the unit. I called
and Son to express my concern and the supervisor told me he would call back after talking to the employee, he did call back and said his employee remembered exactly our unit and he was very impressed how good it looked. I told him I was not satisfied with the way they operated and he finally decided to send another technician the following day. The second technician found everything wrong, the unit is so bad that needs to be replaced, he found even the fuses in the condenser were the wrong type. $897 for new lever water valve, new washer machine faucets including the $236 for replacing the the hoses for the washer machine, the ones I had were brand new from Home Depo, flood safe but after he replaced the faucets the hoses did not work (?) and I did not have any other choice than to replace them for the ones he had in his truck. When he left we noticed that there was a leaking from the hose he said had the wrong extension, came back the following day to fix it. For the prices they charge, they should have an impeccable service, which was not our experience.

Angie's Answers


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.

Drain Pipe Installation reviews in Washington


Everything looks great! Initially a small portion of the original plastic drainage tube was left half-buried, but we called and
Washington Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
came out to remove just a few days later. The buried drainage tubing is fantastic -- they had to cut into our existing retaining wall at the front of the house to create an outlet, and did a very nice job smoothing the surface so it was in line with the rest of the wall. The window wells allow light into our basement, and the grading slopes nicely away from the house. They even removed the stump of another overgrown shrub my husband removed when they were removing the azaleas.

The project went very well. The drainage problem I've been having had been getting progressively worse over the years, and it was time to deal with it as my basement has flooded several times during heavy storms.

showed up right on time on the day of the estimate. He was thorough, and unlike most of the other estimators that came out (I got 5 estimates total), he was willing to listen to what I had to say about the problem. Everyone seemed to have a different idea of how to fix the problem, but I think

came up with the most logical solution at a fair price. I even cancelled a sixth estimate I had scheduled because I was so comfortable in choosing

was also quick to write up another estimate when I asked for pricing about a replacement sump pump and battery backup.
The workers arrived on time and completed the work neatly and efficiently. The project foreman,

When the plumber arrived, he stated the special should have said $100 off the specific function performed. He stated they charged by the job, not by the hour. The quote was $720, but he took $100 off because I purchased the deal from Angie's List. He then knocked another $100 off for some reason. So, the final quote was $520. I declined service at that time, but will call them back to get clarity on the voucher I purchased. I'm not sure why it was advertised 100 for 1 of 7 services, but then changed when the plumber arrived.

Despite digging up the wrong side of the yard at first, he and his crew did an excellent job. Because of the

The person who answered the phone started out very professional, but then started to ask inappropriate questions. Are you singe or married? He said its their policy for the husband to be at the initial consultation as well as the wife (I'm the wife, i.e. both home homeowners) and did not want to make an appointment unless my husband was available. I told him i would find another service provider that didn't discriminate against women. What is this 1950? Amazingly insulting policy!
- Kelly C.

Their estimate for backyard drainage work was five times higher than the next highest bid. The man who did the estimate was erratic. He would recommend one way and then immediately change to something totally different. At one point, he suggested above-the-ground exposed drains with holes to let the water out. (I have a small backyard.)

? I had asked for a landscaping quote also, but by the time he got back to me a month later, he had apparently forgotten that part of the job. Just as well. I would never do business with

The job was done quickly and professionally. They came out one day to give an estimate and when I called him back we scheduled a date in December to do the work. About 3 men came out about 9 a.m. and dug around perimenter of basement awall, removing bushes carefully along with grass. They put a plastic

around wall and returned the dirt and bushes carefully. Also they installed a downspout to carry water away from the wall to a popout where water escapes in the lawn. The whole job took about 6 hours.
