I certainly hope it's just tree roots causing your back-ups. However, based on prior experience, I'm dreading what you're going to find when the first guy comes back.

Missed a few of these while on vacation, but have got back into the habit of watching each morning.

Sorry about your plumbing issues. That's just "shitty".

So what constitutes a "really fancy restroom"? And what restaurant would one have to go to in order to find one?

Have you watched the NCAAs? Any interest or reaction?

Do you have to let it linger? Do you have to. Do you have to.

Epic cursing, potty mouth. You need a jar to put a quarter in every time you curse. Start it next week and see how much you end up with at the end of the month. You might be surprised how much you save up that way.

I usually don't poop at home. Once a week, at most. I'll do it elsewhere cause it stinks up the place and I don't want to smell it later. The thing they clear out the pipes with is called a Snake.

I assume a fancy restaurant is one with a dude sitting at the sink who hands you paper towels to dry with and offers cologne to cover the restroom stink. Then they expect you to give them money because their job is to sit in the restroom all night. I don't give them any money.

You are forgetting the flashing lights.

Only just now did I figure out that perhaps when you said "potty mouth" you meant something different. OR I'm ascribing a level of subtlety to your remarks which you have not intended. As you were.

Word to the wise.
Back when we were experiencing the flooding issue that I mentioned over on the tube, after repeat occurrences they sent out a dude to run a camera through the sewer branch.

Chatting with him and he talked about how grinding out tree roots with the snake is a lot like pruning a normal tree. I.e. it can promote other root growth and you end up with a blocked drain again, a little bit quicker each time.

This is exactly what happened to us. Blocked drain, snake, OK. Time passes. Blocked drain again, wash, rinse, repeat. And each iteration got shorter and shorter. I think the last one was 3 weeks from a grind out to being blocked again. So I'm recommending you keep a bit of an eye on it.

There are techniques for dealing with roots more permanently (and expensively) should they keep growing back and blocking. There's one where they pump some foam based herbicide down there under pressure which is supposed to buy you about 10 years. They're only new here but I think the idea came from the US so they might be more available / cost effective. The other way is where the push a PVC slug down there and blow it out which effectively gives you a brand new poly sewer pipe. This is what we got done.

Or if you know what tree is causing the problems, you could get rid of it.

Hopefully you get no regrowth though!

Tillamook cheese is delicious, as is their ice cream. The LAST time I was driving through Tillamook I looked for a bushy bearded dude in a Scion but no such luck.

To elaborate - My prior experience pertains to at least 5 couples we know, all of whom had sewage back-ups in the basement sinks/showers/etc. in their 60-100year old houses. In each of their cases they just assumed it was tree roots, but then the plumber came out and discovered it was a collapsed main sewer line.

$10-$15,000, most of which was digging up the sewer line to replace it. It's become so common that when my local water company started selling sewer/main water line replacement insurance I jumped on it.

I'm also a little shocked the first guy couldn't put a clean-out in for you. When we had our main line rooted a couple of years ago our clean-out had to be replaced because it was a) lead and b) sealed shut from non-use. Mr. Rooter had no problem doing it.

My co-worker's son worked on replacing the (huge) natural gas lines that run along the bridge. I'll have to see if I can find those pics. He said just the scale of that job, nevermind the whole bridge, was mind boggling.
