and his crew did an excellent job. He was very easy to work with, upfront about everything, and very knowledgable about how to waterproof" crawlspaces. we've been having issues with water in our crawlspace and I didn't know what to do about it. I had another company look at it and they just wanted to encapsulate the whole thing without actually addressing the issue of why water was coming in there in the first place.
explained the reasons why water was getting in there and gave a quote that was cheaper than the other guy (and that made more sense), which actually sounded like it was going to fix the problem. They fogged the crawl space to
mold spores, wiped down all the rafters, installed french drains around the perimeter of the crawl space, drilled holes in the lower foundational blocks to relieve water that was pooling in the blocks (which drained into the french drains). The drains were then routed to a sump pump they installed. They then sealed the entire crawls space using insulation and a heavy duty and high quality vapor
. After that they installed piping in the front of the house to route water that was pooling there around to the side.
and his crew were very nice and punctual for the 3 days that it took them to do the install. We requested that when they fogged the house, they do it at 9am to coordinate with my wife's schedule, and they did so without issue. After the job was finished he came back out to my house to ensure I was happy with it. They left my house in better condition than when they arrived and I commented to my wife that the crawl space looked clean enough to sleep in. I would definitely recommend this company to anybody who needs similar work done.

arrived on time for the appointment. He was very professional in appearance as well as behavior. The job was much more involved than I had" originally indicated. He found problems under the house and sent pictures to my phone so that I could see the work that needed to be done. The price was very fair considering the amount to time and work involved. I would certainly use this company again as well as recommend it to others.

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!
?

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

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.

I asked Mr.
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
if he could fix some problems in my small home in order for me to turn it into a rental property. (I was a single mom and had purchased a 2-bedroom house before I remarried and we moved into my husband's house.) Mr.
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
offered a free estimate that was easy to understand, thorough and reasonably priced. Mr.
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
even helped me work out an agreeable payment plan (

Mr.
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
began work in February of 2011 and the house was ready to rent mid-March. I was able to get my house rented for more than my original rent rate by April 1st! The response was overwhelming! Several couples who were interested in renting the house said it was one of the most beautiful rentals they had seen. I had 2 renters in line in case the first couple did not qualify!
Mr.
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
did a really quality job bringing out period details (the house was built in 1947) in his choices of neutral paints for the walls and moulding, painstakingly repairing and cleaning the mozaic tile floor (tiny, square tiles in an intricate black and white pattern) in the bathroom, and fine-tuning the landscaping to help the boxwoods and pre-established garden stand out along the main walk.
You always hope you can find a "service provider" that will treat your project with care and detail. I know I have a hard time choosing someone from a list in the yellow pages, internet searches, etc. that I can trust to do the whole job, a good job, not overcharge me, and someone you can count on. I have complete faith in Mr.
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
and
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
after seeing what quality work looks like. Also, knowing that Mr.

can be a resource for all things home improvement-related, I won't go searching again!

He was always prompt,approachable,knowledgeable, and honest.He told me what had to be done,what could be done and where I could improve versus defer replacements. I never felt "upsold" or pressured about a job. I have referred him to neighbors and called him for further repairs.

Getting started:
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
requires that the customer pay for all materials up front. In this case, I gave him $3.600..which I found to be odd. He came with great referral, so I went with it. The overall estimate/bid was $8,000. He bills his labor by the day...not the job. His cost is $300/day. He bids how long the job will take, approximately...& provides a timeline of the project & what he plans to complete each day.
Before starting this job, we asked about pulling permits &
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
advised us against doing so. Having never done this, & this is our first commercial space, we trusted the advice of the professional-the "expert". After all, many people do work without getting it permitted. We had no idea the repercussions, nor that our contractor would leave us high & dry with full payment & not help us once the city put a stop work order on our door. Not only were we shocked to have our job halted, but we found out that our guy was not a licensed contractor or plumber!
In general,
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
proved to be a hard worker. To an inexperienced eye, he seemed to do good work too. However when we were ordered by the city to pull everything out that
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
had done, we found that none of the work was done to code. Had it been to code, we might have been able to salvage some of it. Instead, we had to start over from step 1 & redo everything!
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
walked with the full payment of $8,700 & refused to come back to help us, & in fact turned 100% of the responsibility on us, the customer. He went as far as to say we asked him to come work for us without a permit, & to keep the job as cheap as possible (neither of which are true).
Bottom line, if you need general home improvement work done that does not require a permit, you might be fine. Keep in mind that
Greensboro Drain Pipe Installers Provider Name Locked
is not a licensed contractor, which means he is not insured. If this is not an issue for you, than you will be fine. I would NOT pay in full until you are completely satisfied. He played our heart strings & acted pitiful, so we paid him in full thinking he would still help us make things right with the city. He took our money & left town, and told us he would not come back to help us unless we paid his travel expenses AND for all work he would have to redo. Might as well have thrown our $8,700 in the dump as we had to start over & pay it all over again, including fines from the city.

Well the company he recommended did not handle the size drains I had so I was further referred to Roto-Rooter who had the size equipment necessary to help me out.
