"I called at 7 a.m. to request emergency service for a leaking pipe under my sink. I spoke to an employee who took my name and address and said that she would send the call out to the" dispatcher and I would receive a call from the technician when he was on his way. After waiting 5 hours for a call I called back to ensure someone would be coming that day. The gentleman who answered the phone said he was the dispatcher and that no one would be coming because they were too busy with other work. I was told that MAYBE they could get to me tomorrow but most likely not until two days later. I would have at least appreciated a call from them advising that they would not be able to provide emergency services...that way I could have searched for another plumber earlier in the day. They advertise emergency services but apparently they do not actually provide them. Thanks for nothing.

"The company representative came onsite and looked at the job at hand and was very professional and honest and advised they could not begin the task for the allotted funds ($125). They" were very punctual and professional, I would not hesitate to call on them again. I was able to utilize a referral from a friend to get the repairs done.

The Angie's List Guide to Winter Maintenance

It's the time of year when the winter weather can take a toll. Follow this winter maintenance checklist to protect your home, your car and your health.

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.

Pipes in attics and outside walls are especially vulnerable to freezing. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Bret S.)
Plumbing

Winter officially has arrived in Washington so this Christmas you may want to consider something slightly less festive — your water pipes.

It’s usually not a jolly or merry topic, but if your pipes freeze and burst you could have a real mess for the holiday.

radiator
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.

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.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for knowledgeable, affordable, and great help around the house.
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
now only knows exactly what she is doing, but goes the extra mile to explain it to you and to make sure that her work is suitable for the problem. Example: we have an odd-sized drain right outside our basement door that kept becoming clogged. She cut and perfectly fit two drain covers and attached them together so that it was unlikely that a blockage would ever happen again. She installed a better-than-we-had-before garage door lock and fit weatherproofing to our basement door, which is also irregular sized. She is also extremely personable! Great value for great work. Of double bonus, she didn't charge the several-hour-minimum that other handymen charged. Also, love the fact that she's a woman - great for stay-at-home moms!

I called them on a Friday and I told them I had multiple tubs that I wanted to have snaked. The woman I talked to that answered the phone said that she wasn't sure what the total price would be, but the $150 credit would be applied to the total charge. I told her that my understanding of the Angie's list coupon was that it was for one hour of work, not $150 credit. She said she would check and get back to me, but we went ahead and made an appointment for the following Thursday. I called back again on Tuesday since I still had not heard back from her, but didn't get an answer so I left a message. On Wednesday she returned my call, but I was not aware since she didn't leave a message. So Thursday morning I called and once again got voicemail saying that I would not be home in the afternoon for my scheduled appointment since I had not received a resolution to my question.
The woman finally called me back and we had a
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
to discuss my issue. She said the $150 would cover whatever work could be completed in an hour, but any additional time past that would be an additional charge (which makes sense). However she tried to make excuses saying it is hard to determine how long an hour is because the worker has to go back and forth to the truck to get parts, etc. I have plenty of clocks in my home, the time wasn't a concern of mine. She then said there would be a $69 service charge that is applied to all calls. I told her the coupon clearly states this is included, she argued that it wasn't. She said she would call Angie's list to talk to them about the discrepancy. I asked her whether she was going to honor the coupon or not, and again she said she needed to call Angie's list first. So I concluded that she had no intention of honoring it, and informed her that I would be calling them to request a refund.

I'm very happy and relieved with how smoothly the water heater installation went. Our very old water heater sprung a leak through its rusted out bottom at about 11:30pm on a Monday night. First thing Tuesday morning I called another plumber I've used before with good results and he was booked all week and couldn't come to install a new water heater until next week. On top of that, he doesn't stock water heaters--so I would have to deal with purchasing a replacement water heater. We have a 6-week old infant and are doing cloth diapers, so going a week without hot water wasn't an option. (I'm not slamming this other plumber because he's a small family business operation. I don't blame him for being booked for the week.) Soooooo I went to Angie's list, found that Jiffy has great reviews and gave them a call. They were able to send a plumber to our home within 2 hours or so to assess the situation. The Jiffy plumber arrived at our home early Tuesday afternoon, gave my wife a quote of $2,000 to upgrade our now out-of-code gas water heater vent system and install a new 40

heater. He told her he thought that Jiffy might have a heater in stock in their shop and, if so, that he'd be able to install it that day. The plumber went back to the Jiffy shop, found that they had a heater in stock and was back at our home by 4pm to begin the install. He finished the install by about 8pm and we had hot water again less than 24 hours after our old water heater had died. He applied our Angies List member 10% discount and the total bill was a little under $1750--not cheap . . . but I am fine with the price given the very, very prompt service on a pretty major plumbing job. I'm not familiar with the brand of the water heater that was installed--

--so I'm going to hold off on giving a rating for "quality." But all in all I couldn't be happier with my experience hiring Jiffy for this job.

I noticed a small leak in a downstairs pipe on Saturday evening, and called
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
first thing on Monday morning. I had tried to patch the leak myself, but noticed that it was still dripping, and so wanted to get it taken care of before it got worse. I was a new customer, and they were able to fit me on Wednesday morning. They were extremely prompt, and gave me a call to let me know when

would be arriving.
The leak was at a joint, and so
Washington Plumbers Provider Name Locked
replaced the joint where it was leaking, and also gave me some tips on how I could have done a better job on the patch so that it would hold next time. He also walked me through how to properly drain the pipes. We had also been noticing some banging sounds coming from the pipes when water was draining - he helped me to isolate the noise, assured me it wasn't a major issue, and helped to alleviate the noise.
He was also very conscientious about cleaning up any water that got on the floor.

They are courteous and prompt and I
really like that they can give you the cost of the repair up-front. I've
used them twice to do address minor plumbing issues but if I had something big
come up, they would be the first plumbers I'd get an estimate from!
