Unhappy lovely.... sewage backup

noticed water coming up from the floor drain around 4:45 today.... anytime we use any water it comes up.

called Mattamy emerg # and they called back and said they couldn't get anyone to help tonight. when i talked to the guy it didn't seem to be happening anymore so it seemed ok.

then it started again and this time it smelled "unpleasant" we tried the Vitulo Bros # (can't recall the actual name at the moment..) and just got voice mail. we now have a plumber coming to check it out on our own.

we can keep it from happening so it's not like it's a disaster but it would be nice to be able to use the water... and the smell isn't too fun either...

hoping someone just left a rag in a pipe or something... this was the first time we used our washer/dryer so thinking that might be the culprit.

Default Crappy!

That sucks. Makes me kind of worried that Mattamy doesn't have anyone for that sort of thing avl tonight. But it is a sat. night, last thing I'd want to do is unclog that. Hopefully it works out ok for you guys!

That is very unfortunate and I hope you get it under control, have you heard about this sort of thing happening in the general area at all? I guess we should all ensure we have sewer back up insurance coverage.

it was just our drain clogged. Mr Rooter fixed it in about 10 minutes... he says from the house to the street he hit 3 "tight spots" which could have been construction rubble, or they may have damaged the pipe when they backfilled.

soon as he hit the third spot the drain cleared and has been fine since...

i would have been more worried if it was backing up when we WERE NOT using water!

but of course it happened just as we turned the new tv on for the first time.... and the first time i have had a chance to relax in three days

oh well, off to get some bleach and a throw away mop.....

Just a note for future (temporary) drain odors.

Place a rag over the drain and pour bleach on it. This will kill any odors from coming up (unfortunately we speak from experience on this one).

I am happy that the problem was rectified. One question though. Who paid for your plumbing service fee? Did Mattany do anything for you about this problem?

Wow! That's very generous of them! (seeing as any builder can easily say tough) But we KNOW how GREAT Mattamy always is! =D
