I had a sewer line break under my home. Travis and his crew, Adam, Bret, and Val, were so helpful, courteous, and fast! They were very careful to explain the problems, help me consider my options, and then keep me posted throughout the entire project. It ended up being a big job, and they were careful to make sure everyone stayed on task and got the job done in 5 days. We even had a few surprises that were dealt with almost seamlessly. I highly recommend All Star!
Plastic pipe is in wide use for domestic water supply and drain-waste-vent (DWV) pipe. Principal types include: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) was produced experimentally in the 19th century but did not become practical to manufacture until 1926, when Waldo Semon of BF Goodrich Co. developed a method to plasticize PVC, making it easier to process. PVC pipe began to be manufactured in the 1940s and was in wide use for Drain-Waste-Vent piping during the reconstruction of Germany and Japan following WWII. In the 1950s, plastics manufacturers in Western Europe and Japan began producing acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) pipe. The method for producing cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) was also developed in the 1950s. Plastic supply pipes have become increasingly common, with a variety of materials and fittings employed.
Sump pumps are used to re-route water away from the lowest point of your home's foundation and protect your basement and easily damaged areas from flooding. In most cases, your sump pump is hardwired to your electrical system or possibly plugged into a wall outlet. Because these power sources can often fail in a storm when water damage occurs, sump pumps are typically equipped with battery backup power.
We called Austin when we noticed water leaking from the ceiling under the upstairs bathroom. He was upfront about the cost (it was a Saturday and that meant time and half) and was able to come to the house in under an hour. He took a look and then again, gave us the option to wait until Monday to cut the cost. We asked him to stay and he was very efficient and quick in diagnosing our problem. He was straight forward and didn't try to play any games or waste our time. We are so grateful for his incredible work and putting our minds at ease. He will certainly be the plumber we call, and refer our friends to, for any plumbing needs. We are extremely satisfied with his work!
"We have found our plumber for life! Jim is awesome! We just bought a house with a leak in the foundation, and in spite of the complicated and extensive nature of the repairs needed, Jim quoted us an incredibly reasonable price. Having just closed on a house, though, we were extremely short on funds, and so to help us out, Jim did a temporary fix for much less, and even though he was going above and beyond and doing this extra work for us, he said he'd even deduct the cost of that repair from the total of the final, permanent repair, when we had that done!! I can't say enough good things about him - there's much more, but I don't have room!"
