A little kitchen update...S did the plumbing himself (after all he is a mechanical engineer). We'll start there. We've got a 70 year old lead (not sure, but probably) waste line that drains from the house to the sewer that has some really awesome 90 degree bends in it. S put in the new plumbing...the drain was sluggish. He thought it was an easy fix, just a little venting problem. Then the drain plugged completely. Not a venting problem, probably plugged somewhere. S borrowed an electric snake from work on Friday and tried to snake the waste line. After lots of wiggling the stupid thing around to get it out of the afore-mentioned 90 degree bend he hooked everything back up again. No dice. Yesterday he snaked it again. Nada. Drano was applied. Nothing. One more time with the snake, advancing it as far as he could and it broke. Off. Inside the pipe.
I have no sink.
I can't cook.
Back to eating out.
We have to replace a 70 year old pipe.
He says he can do it.
