As you know our bathtub was backed up 2 weeks ago. And it still is.
We have been smelling a gaggy smell in the house but we didn’t exactly know from whence it came. When the drain technician came to unclog the drain he found a much bigger problem totally unrelated to the clog.
Apparently the houses’s main drain has a major crack in it and has been spewing water and sewage into the crawl space under the house. Eeeww! YUK! Pew.
Unfortunately the cost for this job is $1100: $650 to repair the pipe and $450 to dig enough dirt out of the crawl space for the techs to get in there and replace the pipe.
My darling Charlie is doing the digging to save us the money. He’s lying on his back in nasty, smelly dirt while digging as best he can. The whole scene reminds me of the prison break in The Great Escape.
The drain service was slated to return on Monday to both clear the drain and replace the 4″ by 10 foot pipe. Unfortunately his office called and said he actually couldn’t be here until next Thursday. I called another company who will be out on Monday. I’m pretty sure we don’t want to go another week without using water in the kitchen sink.
What stinky thing makes your clogs seem small?
