"Very professional. Provided a prompt, accurate assessment of the problem and completed the repairs in a timely manner. This was the second time we used their services" and would highly recommend the company.

"Arrived home Thursday evening to a leaking water heater. Reviewed service providers on Angie's List and identified
as a top choice." Concerned that I could have a major problem if the water heater wasn't replaced before the weekend, I called
at ~7:15 AM Friday morning. The phone was answered by
(owner). I explained my situation to
and asked if he would be able to fit in a water heater installation that day.
took down my name and address, the type and size of water heater that was required and indicated that he would be at my house between 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM. He pulled in the driveway at ~11:00 AM, accompanied by his assistant
and a new water heater. By 12:30 PM the job was complete and the old water heater had been removed from the house.
took the time to show me how to adjust the thermostat settings and how to properly flush the system to maximize the service life of the water heater. He also gave me some ideas on a future bathroom remodling project. This was an absolutely exceptional level of service. I wouldn't hesitate to use
again and would highly recommend
to anyone requiring plumbing services.

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.

Winter has arrived in Washington along with Christmas and New Year's. When you're thinking about staying warm and cozy consider the same for your water pipes.

Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

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.

is an absolute life saver! I am not kidding. We feel so blessed to have found
Gaithersburg Plumbers Provider Name Locked
. We originally contacted him in 2014 to hang some ceiling fans in our house and he went above and beyond when we found out the wiring was not quite what we expected behind the walls. A couple of months later we called him on a Saturday freaking out when our radiator froze and exploded and he was here within an hour. Then we called him back two days later when our drain pipe was leaking. Next we called him when our clean out was overflowing. I mean at this point we've just offered him our spare bedroom! Seriously though,

Technician arrived on schedule. He diagnosed the problem and fixed it. To do so, he replaced a key part that he had on hand but not with him. He left to get the new part and returned promptly. I especially appreciated his cleaning up water from melted ice on refrigerator coils. He was courteous and professional. It is a relief to know that

There was a gurgling noise coming from the basement toilet and floor drain. From past experience I knew the main line in the house was clogged. I got online and scheduled an appointment with

, 3825 Paragon Drive, Columbus Ohio. Within a reasonable amount of time on a Friday night the dispatcher called and told me they were on the way. They arrived at my house in Columbus Ohio to assess the situation,they listened to my description of previous issues and solutions, explained what they would do and how much it would cost and asked for my go ahead. The entire process took a little more than 45 minutes. They were very helpful in explaining what they were doing and what I could do to prevent it from happening again in the future. Thanks to Angie's list I was able to save $40 and thanks to

This was great. I purchased a special on outside faucet replacement (which I have needed for years). Everything was top notch starting with the delightful woman who answered the phone and finalized my appointment. The appointment offered was in two hour increments, 11am-1pm for me, not just am or pm and I was called just to let me know the serviceman was on his way. The serviceman was polite and courteous in addition to knowing his profession well and is an asset to

Everything went well no fuss and no mess. He was in and out in a matter of 30 minutes. He didn't make any messes and was professional. We appreciate the fact that he suggested a repair on the faucet rather spending $200 more. We
