I don’t know if I will ever trust a drain guy again. Last night, the bathtub which was already leaking right under the house filled up with stuff from elsewhere. We were not using the bathtub. We weren’t even using that bathroom. But just before bedtime, walking down the hall, a horrible smell drifted out of the bathroom. We looked inside and the tub was filled with several inches of solid black smelly stuff that could only be backup from the main sewer line. I don’t know what was worse…the smell, or the fact that we knew as it was going down it would be draining under the house. Sigh. So now we wait until we can talk to the landlord and hope they are able to get it all fixed today. Ick.
I hope the landlord pays for someone to come in and clean that up for you guys.
Ugh. Hope you have everything settled today 🙁
I am eating my words. I think I just might trust the guy they sent out this evening. He was the first one that seemed like he had a clue as to what was going on. Luckily, yes, the landlord is paying for everything. We’re not all fixed yet but mostly. He also said he was to give a quote to them on replacing all the pipes from the house to the street, which is our preference, but we know the owners won’t go for that. It would be about $10K due to the huge, ancient tree they would have to work around.
Oh no! I hope they fix it quickly for you.
We’re getting there. Thanks.
Can I just say EWWWW?
I know. Stinky stuff but at least the smell is gone tonight.
