  • A saturday gone to shi.....

    Well we didnt do our typical saturday dig.... a few months ago, my son was playing in the tub with his matchbox cars. The good guys were ramming the bad guys.. one of the bad guys went flying, and had a wet landing....not in the tub. ( its an old house with a small bathroom and the tub and toilet are close) he then did what any kid would do and jiggled the silver handle... he confessed to his mother, after it backed up. Of course it didnt have a problem until we had a house full of company.... i plunged it like a madman and it looked like the crisis was over,,, for about a week. The drain in the shower started sounding like it was possessed. Then it backed up, again, into the shower... after carefully studying the situation i determined it couldnt be the little car.. it was past the toilet out to the 90 after shower, how else could it back up in there. A little car cant clog a three inch pipe.
    So, i pulled the toilet and tried snaking the line... nothing. Water flowed easy...i then put a bunch of baby wipes in and poured more water while everyone else watch the cleanout in the basement to see what showed. Nothing showed up. Nothing i could do at this point but cut the pipe..... luckily its easy to get to... here is what i found... sorry no insitu..
    A crappy convertible...

            And guess what ??? The new places in Hawaii have a toilet next to the tub .
            Space over here is valuable .
            The most important thing to me is the space outside and you guys rock that .

              Ah Yes - The Ole toys down the toilet trick. Once that happens - the solution is never easy. But - you saved the day and wouldn't you know it was when ya had company. Glad you got it fixed.
