Response from Schuelke Plumbing Inland Empire:
They were courteous and hard working people .
We had a leak in our kitchen, and Schuelke Plumbing came out fairly immediate to begin the remediation and repair services. Very happy with them, and really appreciative that it's a local, family owned and operated company.

Customers waste and overflow is leaking down into units ceiling below them. Recommended replacement of waste and overflow as well as P trap in order to remove clog as well as fixing the leak Performed repair to waste over flow by opening ceiling of unit A in order to gain access to drains for the bathtub of unit C. Removed old waste and overflow as well as galvanized P trap. Installed new P trap and waste and overflow. Ran water for several minutes and everything was draining properly with no leaks
Snaked customers tub drain and pulled back large amounts of hair. Could not get snake past approximately 3’ before hitting an obstruction in drain that I could not get passed. Opened access panel behind tub and inspect drains and noticed customers waste and overflow was leaking. Highly recommend replacing water and overlfow as well as old P trap.
Replaced customers fill valve for hallway toilet as well as angle stop and supply line. After removing old angle stop I noticed that customer had large amounts of debris and build up in water lines which is most likely the result of the original fill valve failing. Explained to customer that there is a chance that this could be an ongoing issue util galvanized water lines are replaced
Snaked customers shower drain. Found a bunch of hair and after running water the shower is draining well. Recommend that customer always uses strainer while showering.
Performed inspection of customers plumbing. Ran water on all fixtures to make sure they had hot and cold water and where working properly inspected under sinks for leaks and inspected water heater everything appeared to be in good working order. Only issues I noticed was the hot handle for the Roman tub valve would leak from base when turned on all the way. And the down stairs toilet had a kink in the supply line. Recommended replacing cartridge for Roman tub valve as well as replacing supply line for the downstairs toilet.
Customer has burst water line causing water damage to several rooms and carpet. Recommended performing proper mitigation in order to prevent mold growth
Customer had a soft clog. Was able to clear clog via mainline cleanout on side of house. Performed camera inspection and did not see any major issues with sewer line.
Snaked customers kitchen line via cleanout on outside wall of kitchen sink performed camera inspection and noticed customer has orangeburg piping that is beginning to fail. If customer continues to have clogs, then we recommend replacing orangeburg piping to prevent future issues.
Attempted to snake customers laundry line from roof and pulled back large amounts of roots. Followed up with camera inspection of laundry line and right where customers laundry and sink drain go down into the ground there was a large root intrusion that was causing the clog. Was not able to get my camera past this point to see what kind of condition the rest of the line was In. Highly recommend jackhammering flooring and digging down to this section of pipe and performing spot repair to remove roots. Once section is removed we will be able to perform a camera inspection of the rest of the line. Drains under sink where also in properly plumbed in. Performed spot repair on laundry drain as recommended. Removed a cracked section of cast iron pipe that was allowing roots to enter. Performed camera inspection and saw that the rest of the customers 30’ section of laundry drain had several root intrusions. Recommended replacing rest of drain via pipe bursting.

Customers old gate valve at water meter was leaking. Removed and replaced with new 3/4 brass ball valve
Performed leak detection and did not see any evidence that there was a pressurized leak on customers water lines. Checked meter and meter was not moving. Indicating there was no leak. Performed camera inspection of customers sewer line from kitchen cleanout and all drains looked to be In good shape. I do not believe the moisture in the front living room is due to a water or sewer leak. After further inspection I noticed almost the surround of the drop in room had elevated moisture as well as around the perimeter of the back door leading to the garage. I believe moisture is entering from outside of the home and causing the damage. Customer had large portions of stucco that was flaking off where stucco and concrete met.
Arrived and found that the detached apartment had a mainline sewer clog. The only available clean outs were blocked by other pipes that appeared to have been shoved inside the vertical portion of the clean out. Attempted to clear the drain by removing the toilet however the angle stop for the toilet would not shut off. Attempted to clear the line through the rooftop vent line but unable to access the line. Shut the water off to the property and removed the toilet. I was unable to clear the line from the removed toilet. I located the clog using the camera’s locator and completed a spot repair at that location. The spot repair was approximately 3.5ft deep in the rear yard. I discovered the orangeburg line had partially collapsed in a 2 ft section. I removed the collapse line and and replaced it with ABS pipe. A two way clean out was also installed. A camera inspection revealed that the rest of the sewer line had extreme delamination and was close to fully closing or collapsing. I was
