    My downstairs washroom backed up. The toilet, the sink, and the shower. I don't even use that shower 'cause it wasn't built correctly...my brother had his stuff stored in it (HA HA!), but it backed up 2 inches. It also came up through the drain in the floor, which (brilliantly) has wood flooring over it.

    Am I correct to assume that this is grey water, and I'm going to have to cut out walls and replace the entire floor?

    Check the toilet drain for jerkoff socks.
    I saw that on Weeds.

    No idea.
    I end up doing everything myself.

    I am a good woman...but this is the shower in the basement. I have a shower upstairs.

    The guy who thought he knew what he was doing when he "finished" the basement before I bought the house was a moron. GREAT looking shower...with the center drain elevated - so it works...but it doesn't drain. I've never used that shower since I realized it's shortcoming. It's more decorative than anything.

    Do you live in a model home?

    Maybe PP is shoving the body parts of the hookers he kills down your drains. Something to consider. :coffee:

    I don't think it was a model. Why would that make a difference?

    A model home is not designed to be lived in. :fil:

    My house is one of the smaller ones in this subdivision. I highly doubt it was a model. That being said, I was only 17 when it was built, so I really wouldn't know.

    The basement was "finished" by the previous homeowner, just before I bought it 5 years ago. He was an idiot. One of those guys who clearly considered himself a "jack of all trades"...but fucked up pretty much every aspect of the project.

    :wtf:

    I ain't checking shit. I shut off the water downstairs, and I am simply hiring a plumber first thing in the morning, and deciding if I need to go through insurance from there.

    PP tried to snake the sink and toilet. (yes, he's back)

    To no avail.

    I have no "plumber" friends. Besides...if it's covered through insurance, why would I waste a buddy's time anyways? :dontknow:

    New floors for free? giddyup
