Bad Day... plumbing issues

I had an awful day. The toilets over flowed and the bathtub filled with yucky water. We have to have it fixed or we canít use any water... shower, toilet anything. Itís going to cost around $2000.

Itís one thing after another lately. I canít relax because Iím waiting for the other foot to drop.

We canít stay in the house. I didnít know how serious plumbing problems could be. How long do things like this take to fix ? I couldnít even go home after school today.

That does sound awful. I'm sorry to hear that. I'm even sorrier to hear how much it costs. Hopefully it gets fixed soon.

Oh no! That sounds awful! Iím guessing sewer problems? A clog in your line? Seems like they could send a camera down and figure out where the problem is! Do you have a septic tank?

Iím hoping itís a quick fix for you! Hang in there! <<hugs!>>

We had that happen.

Since it was during "good weather" (no wet, muddy yard, etc.), it took our plumber and his colleague 2 days, about 4 hours each day, to re-plumb, and then we had to clean.

It sucks, but hopefully, it will be finished soon. I hope once it's done, you have no more issues. :-) I'm thinking about you. Try not to keep worrying!
