" I called on a Saturday after 2pm and was told I'd have someone out very soon Their guy arrived within a 2 hr period. He was very courteous and knowledgeable." Went right to work and cleaned up everything. Before I called Roto Rooter I had called another major company who mentioned they would call a "third" party to check out our problem. I received a call 3 hours later at the very moment the Roto Rooter service person was leaving. Excellent response and service. Thank you Roto Rooter

-Ruth R.

"Great. We will definitely use again. I think the best part was the man came out within 15 minutes of our call! This might not be typical. I will soon find out." I just called the company again with a problem at a rental house we own. Hope it goes as well as before!

What are the warning signs of a main sewer line clog?

Highly rated plumbers describe the warning signs that your main sewer line is clogged, provide tips on unclogging the line, and explain how to avoid scams.

5 ways to avoid a sewer repair or drain cleaning scam

Don't fall victim to a unnecessary service or sewer or drain cleaning scam. Here are five ways to help avoid becoming a victim.

Use a plunger as your first line of defense with a clogged toilet. It can also fix clogs in the bathtub or shower, but be sure to fill the base with an inch of water to help the plunger seal before plunging. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)
Plumbing, Plumbing - Drain Cleaning

Plumbers say the most common cause of toilet clogs is the use of multi-ply toilet paper. Other culprits are baby wipes and other allegedly "flushable" products.

Leaky plumbing messy area under the sink
Plumbing, Plumbing - Drain Cleaning

It's a good idea to get to know a good plumber before you have a plumbing emergency. Also, watch out for these red flags of possible plumbing-related scams.

Angie's List member Ronald C. of Roseville, Mich., had to install a new drain pipe after tree roots grew into the old pipe forming a clog.
Plumbing - Drain Cleaning

How often does a sewer drain need cleaning? Angie Hicks responds to a member who wants to know if sewer drain cleaning should be done regularly or as-needed.

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 Cleaning reviews in Kansas City


This is our third time in 6 years using them for our sewer line, but the first time we have had root problems.. We called around 8pm and someone was here around 8:30. The job proved to be difficult, but the plumber stayed around to finish the job. They are always timely, courteous, and give good quality work which they guarantee for 90 days, and they are right on budget with their costs. We recommend this company to anyone who has plumbing problems.
- Villanueva G.

Quickly determined source of water filling basement was from AC dehumidifier and was not coming through the drain, and that the drain was clogged by rust from the floor drain pipe. Power drilled through the clog and widened the opening to nearly the inside diameter of the pipe.

Their tech came within 45 min of calling them. We showed him what we needed. He got straight to work. Within an hour he was done. What we didn't tell him is that we had another drain cleaning service out the day before and they couldn't get it open. My wife and I are thoroughly impressed with this company and will use them again.
- Thomas W.

The person who took the initial call was very helpful in letting us know what we needed to do in order to get the workers schedule. The set up the time in a convenient fashion and came to the house just when they said they would. When they did the total time to complete the work was probably 15 minutes, as they quickly diagnosed the issue and came up with a resolution without any hassle.
We would absolutely use them again. Great job and good price.
- Michael S.

I have used the company for 3-4 years. The staff does great work. They are very responsive and come out quickly. The technicians are professional and knowledgeable.
- Roxanne S.

I had used the company in the past. One technician came out for the job and completed it in about an hour and fifteen minutes. He was professional and did a great job. I decided to use them again because they did such a good job the first time. I had no problem scheduling the service and they have been very responsive.
- Kimberly M.

1 - I had purchased a new garbage disposal, figuring mine would need to be replaced. I was initially impressed when
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
asked my wife for a hammer, stuck the handle down in the blades, and freed it up. But it went downhill from there. He commented that whomever installed the disposal (my Dad) installed it improperly. So his helper
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
took it out and
reinstalled it correctly. Only the seal around the sink flange leaked. He put another seal in and thought it was fixed. It leaked again, so we made an appointment and he came back and worked on it again. It still leaked after that, so we bought a new disposal and my son installed it. (I am handicapped, so can no longer do home repairs). Now my wife can use the
dishwasher again.
2 - Faucet repair. He installed a replacement set of O-rings, springs, etc to repair a leaking kitchen faucet. Within three weeks it was leaking again.
3 - We had a bathroom sink that was draining slowly. I told
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
about it. He went in, ran some water down it and said it looks good to him. I know it drains slowly because I use it everyday. I told him I wanted the drain cleaned, so
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
went in and 'cleaned it'. When I went in the bathroom, I saw about half a dozen black smudges in the sink, and it looked to me that all he did was adjust the stopper higher.
4 - Our washroom/kitchen drain was running slowly.
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
brought his power auger in and 'cleared the drain'. Within three days, the drain was totally clogged. I contacted their service number and set up a time for
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
to come back and re-auger it. He didn't show up when he was supposed to. He called about an hour and a half later and said he got tied up on another job. He said he could come first thing the following day. At 10:00 the next morning, he still hadn't shown up. At this point I'd had enough with this company. I called their service number and told them I didn't want them back. I called another company, R-Mech, and had them come and fix the clog. It drained perfectly after they cleared it.
So I had to pay R-Mech $99 to clear the clog. I called
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
and told him I expect him to reimburse me for the $99. He said he'd pay half of it, and I again said he should pay it all because of all the grief he caused me. He said to send him the bill. I emailed it to him. That was the last I heard from him. I left messages for him twice just this past week. No response. At least an apology and reimbursment of the $99 would have been nice.
5 - Since there was still a little time left on my two hour $140 deal, he mentioned he also did electrical work if I had the need for any. So he replaced a light on my deck.So for my $140 deal, I got a light replaced, a lot of aggravation, and a bill for $99 to fix what
Kansas City Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
messed up.
What a deal!
