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.

A pipe in our basement snapped at nearly 8 PM, quickly giving way to a scene out of the Titanic. After figuring out how to cut the water to the house, we called one plumber who told us we were 4th on the list of emergency calls that night and the plumber was still on call #1. We called 4Fast Plumber and were told a guy would be out in 45 minutes and he was here within the hour. I'm not sure we could have gotten an ambulance to our house that fast.
The plumber (sorry, don't know his name) was straight to the point, reassuring and calm. He repaired the pipe in no time flat, told us to keep the water off for 40 more minutes and then turn it back on so we could use toilets, taps, etc. The price was steep - $450 for about 40 minutes of work - but in an emergency, we felt it was worth it. It was $200 for the emergency call and $250 for the repair, which he told us before he started the work. We so appreciated the plumber (sorry, don't know his name!) interrupting his evening to come help us out. And loved that we didn't have to

These guys are awesome. They are really friendly, and have always given exceptional service. They have a very transparent hourly rate (I think $135/hr + materials), which is much better than other plumbers I have used. I once had a large job of rerouting some pipes, and

came in at about 1/3 of the cost of my next-lowest estimate. The only complaint is that they are a very small business, so sometimes it takes some time to get an appointment. I suppose by giving this great review that will only make it worse, but so be it.

On Friday night, my friends and I smelled gas outside my house. I called

was very professional. H used a sniffer to find the leak, and even checked the gas meter next door. He found an intermittent leak in one of the fittings on my meter, and replaced it. The whole job took about 1.5 hours. They charged $675 (and I used a $25 Angie's List coupon), but it still seems steep for only 1.5 hours of work--even if it also includes the plumbing fittings cost. I'm glad to have my meter fixed and so quickly, but I think I could have found someone to fix it more cheaply.

We were referred to
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and his father from neighbors who had work done on their houses that we admired. The estimate they provided for the porch roof replacement plus some small repairs to the main slate roof and gutters was about the middle of the road, but we knew from our friends that the work was exemplary. As a small family firm they only take on as much as they can handle and clients benefit from the close attention. They worked with us at all steps of the project to ensure our vision would match the final product. This included recreating the original molding details; they worked with us to match as close as possible molding which is no longer commercially available, something that many houses on our block are now missing due to previous replacements. Where possible they also like to use reclaimed wood that matches the dimensions used during original construction. This speaks to the care with which they approach the job. All work was completed on time and without damage to existing planting beds right under the work being performed. When we notified them of a small leak that appeared several weeks after the work was completed they had someone out that very afternoon to take a look. I would not hesitate to use

What was a very big and stressful job (replacing a 100 year old sewer line in our Capitol Hill row house, while we are living abroad) was made much easier thanks to the professionalism and quality workmanship of
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and his team.
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was very hands on and gave us the confidence that this difficult and disruptive job would be done well. They offered the lowest price to do the job and did the bulk of the work in 2 days, minimizing the inconvenience to our tenants (not the mention lost rent!). He also suggested not replacing the pipe in one section of the house which had not had problems and had recently been renovated. Other plumbers had planned to do the entire thing - increasing the price and also the repair costs after the work was done.
When they got into the job and found that the sewer line wasn't where it was supposed to be, he notified me immediately but had a solution for the problem. He re-routed the sewer to avoid having to impact the kitchen cabinets and appliances, again minimising the overall cost and disruption. I would recommend this company to anyone with a plumbing problem, large or small, but for the big, complicated ones they are in a class of their own.

The guy that came out provided very little information while he was working. He cut my pipe and cut into my wall without my permission. He wasn't able to find the proper fitting. He ended up soldering and doing a lot of unnecessary things without my approval first. He finished the job, though. It was taken longer than it should have. I have to give him some credit though for finding the solution and finishing the job.
