The washer's drain pipe is backing up and flooding our garage whenever we do a load of wash. I believe this is an issue with our main drainage pipe/ system, since this also happens when the upstairs shower drains.

1.90 Shower membrane installation before tile?

Q. I cut a chase in sub-floor to change plumbing from a tub to a shower, i covered sub-floor with 1/4 durarock,then cement for a solid base,morter mix to slope floor towards drain i was then going to install a membrane when customers tile installer said it had to be removed and replaced that i installed it incorrectly. It was my understanding that after the membrane he was to install thinset over membrane and then tile ? can someone please help answer my questions i still am not sure if i made any mistakes i was trying to ensure a good base for durable longevity

A. The membrane goes behind the durock, and under the mortar bed, the idea is that the membrane holds all the water in and is the last defense between the wood and durock/mortar bed, thinset wont bond to the membrane, it is meant to be attached to concrete of some form whether durock or the mortar bed...putting a membrane in between will keep the the thinset from attaching properly and in turn would cause a horrible tile job, you will need to rip out everything you did and start over from the frame work, dont be surprised if this customer doesn't call you back for anymore work. i would suggest hiring a sub-contractor who knows how to do the job properly and eat the cost if you want to maintain any kind of reputation. and dont take jobs that you aren't 100% sure you know how to do. i dont suggest shoving the membrane under the mortar bed or making an attempt to "make" it work...if its not done right and it leaks you can face a law suit for future water damage because of poor installation of membrane. It has to be done right.

1.20 Is hot water plumbing connected to the toilet plumbing?

Q. I have a problem. I always flush my cig butts down the toilet and now there is a plumbing problem in my apt building. They will be turning off the hot water for repairs. Will It get traced back to me?

A. Only cold water it routed to the toilet. Flushing drains the water to the sewage pipe. Hot or cold bears nothing to this, its all sewage.

1.20 Is it possible to open your own one man plumbing company?

Q. My father in law in the union for plumbers and has to work two more years before he can retire but because the union has jobs that only last for a few months at a time it wouldn't benefit him because it has to be a consistent two years of work. So, what i want to know is, is it possible for him to open his own union plumbing business. not a shop where you buy plumbing parts, etc. but he would be the plumber himself, with out breaking any union rules and where he could retire in two years with his union benefits?

A. Sure,just don't get flushed with excitement !

1.20 Legal Advice or plumbing advice?

Q. OK. I purchased my house in 2006 (Maryland) AS IS. I have been working on updating the home and appliances since then andI purchased a home warranty. Last year, my daughter's bathroom had a leak. I called the home warranty company and they sent out a plumber from a local plumbing company. The plumbers came (2 of them) and came up with my daughter's tub needed to be caulked. I knew that was not the issue since the tub was not in use at the time of the leak. So they left and informed the warranty company. Two weeks later my home flooded because of the same issue in my daughter's bathroom and again the tub was not in use. So I called the warranty place and they call the same plumbers out. This time they said she had a fracture in the bowl and replaced the toilet. This weekend, my home flooded again 10 times worst than before. I called a local plumbing company who came out and told me the toilet (which was a $40 Mancessa toilet was sub par and had a crack in the toilet tank, which caused the flood. I paid $700 for the plumber to install a Gerber Viper. My home, furniture and hard wood floors are all ruined (3 levels). I called the insurance company who sent out a team to manage the water damage. Each day we are conducting meter readings and my home is still wet. The water damage compaby said they will need to pull up all the flooring, My insurance company told me the $700 spent for a new toilet does not reduce my $1000 deductible. My insurance company cleaned the 1st flood and I made them aware of what the plumber I haired wrote on the invoice regarding why the flood happened. I called the home warranty compnay who told me to contact the plumbers who is licensed with their own insurance. The woman who answere the phone at the plumbing company contracted by the warranty company immediatley took offense and was very rude. She would not transfer the call to anyone else for me to talk to. So far, I have not been able to pay my mortgage (1st time late) dealing with this issue. I am missing time from work coming out every day for moisture readings. vistis from the adjuster, and constant calls to the warranty place. I have missed a lot of time and gas dealing with this problem not to mention the thousands of dollars of damage, late fees and stress What should my next steps be? Who is responsible (plumbers or warranty company? What type of attorney do I need? Any other advice you can give? Thanks

A. File a complaint with the State Plumbing Board $700 for a toilet , wow , it better have a heated seat the macessas are horrible

1.20 What kind of contractor to repair fungus on subfloor?

Q. I was told I have water damage to the subfloor under my toilet. I assume that means pipes and/or toilet fixtures that are leaking, which once located will need repairing, plus replacing the wood subfloor where damaged. Do I need a water damage specialist, plumbing contractor, wood floor contractor? I have no idea, but can't handle too many different contractors....

A. Get yourself a handy man that can do many jobs instead of paying 2 sometimes 3 diff contractors i suggest you do that but if your talking about fungus please be careful with that depending on the issue you have and depends on what Chems get into that fungus you might have to get an inspector to check that out... please don't keep inhaling that stuff it's no good.
