"Incident happened during the morning. Contacted them about 8:30 and
said he would call me around noon after his current appointment, which" he did. They arrived around 12:30 and were able to snake about 64 feet down the line (well outside our house). Probable root and cloth clog based on what came back. We're very happy with the result. Saved $10 with an Angie's coupon, so total with tax was $300.

"The major issue with
is their schedule/punctuality. They were initially scheduled to come between 8am-12pm one day but missed that window" (and I couldn't wait until after that window), so we rescheduled for the next day for them to arrive sometime between 8am-4pm. After a number of calls to customer service reps (who were very nice/apologetic/helpful), the technicians finally arrived around 8pm. This was fairly inconvenient for us given we have 3 small children who were in bed (near where the work needed to be done). I should note that given this horrific winter with what has certainly caused a litany of plumbing emergencies, the scheduling issue/punctuality is somewhat understandable - however, we did not have an emergency/did not request an appt right away, so why create an unattainable/unmanageable schedule where your technicians are constantly running behind? I would have happily had our appointment scheduled for a week out or whatever it needed to be so that I didn't waste 1.5 days waiting for a technician. The technicians were friendly and gave us options for what are very old pipes, and did not charge us for the pipes they were unable to clear, which was appreciated. They clearly work hard, showing up for a job at 8pm having worked all day and stayed until almost 10pm. One final thing though is that when the lead technician finished, he told my husband that if we went on Angie's List/Yelp/etc and gave an "A" rating (or the equivalent on other sites) we would be eligible to
a
contest where you have the opportunity to
back the cost of service. He gave my husband the
flyer that described the promotion, which of course, did not reqiure that you provide an "A" rating or equivalent. We didn't (and were never intending to) enter that contest, but it struck me that this "direct encouragement" is fairly unethical and may drive some of the positive ratings
achieves on this site.

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.

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

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.

He was very fast indeed however he did get the job done right. My concern was that the water inside the toilet bowl would no longer be moving out causing a continuation of water flow and a huge water bill to go with it. So he stop that just by changing everything inside the toilet tank. Now he quoted me over the phone 75.00 but charged me 135.00. I thought that was a little steep but I guess for todays prices it was ok. Last plumbing done over quite a number of years ago it may have cost me only 50.00 with same similar issue. So I guess I am the one with the problem. Everything is going up including gas prices so I really can not complain. He is good at his job. Yes I will call him again if I need a plumber.

The service went fine. I was not home while they did the service. My husband worked with the technician who was out. I assume everything went fine. When they did the video they did not speak clear or loud enough. I had no problem scheduling the deal.

I was told by plumber
New Britain Drain Plumbers Provider Name Locked
that it would cost 148 to clear both drains; however, he could not drain the shower drain because it was blocked by dirt or cement.
He only charged me for the successful cleared drain and offered free advice on how to complete the install. He was also correct and explaining to me how the drains were setup. They had not been used since I bought the old house.
Very pleased with his professionalism and price.

The first technician came out and neither of us could find the drain clean-out. This is my deceased mother's house and I am not familiar with that. We opted to go through the toilet with a smaller rooting unit. The unit would not run so he left and we called for another available technician. He started the clean-out through the toilet and hid some strong roots. He kept trying and also sent the inspection camera down to verify the cause. There were roots in the sewer drain and needed the larger rooter to extract. We finally located the drain clean-out and started cleaning out the roots. The tiles are bad, so he had trouble getting through the entire run due to the disconnects. The inspection camera indicated this. The technician
