Best Laid Plans F@ckig Gone Astray

We've heard some gurgling from the sewer line trap the past few days. We tried root killer and the gurgling went away. Then this morning there were a number of water bugs around the trap. Moved stuff and opened the trap door.

There was no gurgling anymore because the water level was an inch from the top, submerging the pipe that drains into the trap. Obviously, the pipe that drains the trap was blocked. (old house, old sewer line - roots get into the pipe like clockwork). The plumber was called, and he needed the trap drained to the level that the pipe emptying the drain was revealed. Bucket-line in effect.

The plumber is here now.

Its a shitty day.

Catch-up may be delayed.

All hail the god of feces.



  1. Argh, I had to replace my sewer line TWICE. It's a crummy, crappy experience. Hope all goes well.

  2. Hey at least yours is accessible. Mine is 8.5 under the sidewalk and made of clay. Yay 1800s houses!

  3. Talk to your friendly otyugh to take care of these problems in the future!
