I just have to get this out becuase I am so fed up....and I figured I could let it out and you mamas would understand.... just a warning this may be a bit long-winded...
So we just moved into this apartment (flat) at the beginning of October. The second day we were here the toliet started to back up, it was draining really slow and just generally not working correctly, we tried to buy a plunger, but it didn't work, we called the management company who sent a plumber out a few days later (yes a few days...), he used a snake to clear the clog, broke the pipe behind the toliet wall and had to smash the tiles behind the toliet to get to the leak, but eventually got the clog cleared
but, within two days it was backing up again.....after 5 desperate phones calls in one day (the last phone call yelling at them "I am 7 months pregnant and I will not go without my toliet overnight), they sent the same plumber, who in my opinion is an idiot....he came "cleared" the clog and left within 15 minutes...
Fast forward a month - the tiles in my bathroom are not repaired, although someone was supposed to show up to fix them and didn't
and now to make a long story short - it seems that the bathroom clog was pushed further into the system and is effecting the shower, sink and washer draining as well, so I can't really use those right now either. We found this out because of an electrical problem we started to have three days ago. Essentially a mouse ate through a wire in our back porch (under the flooring), and because the chewed wire was sitting in a pool of water that was backing up from the drainage system it kept blowing a fuse....oy...I can't believe it! So the electrician had to pull up the flooring in the back porch and the carpet and flooring in part of my living room in order to get to the wiring...
The same plumber is now back trying to figure out where the clog actually is (he is making a mess, it my house smells like SH*T, my back porch is a disaster, my bathroom is a disaster, my father in law is here visiting from the states for the week, I can't leave the house becuase I have been waiting for plumbers, electricians and carpenters all day, I have a major paper due in a week and I am having a major nesting instinct!
All I want to do is clean and wash diapers and baby clothes, and I can't do anything (and we are planning on having a homebirth) ARGHH...I am so aggravated!
Not expecting any replies....I just had to whine! If you actually read through all of this - Thank you! It feels better just to get it out my system!
