Blocked Drains


Aug 18, 2005
Every year or sometimes twice or maybe three times a year, i have to get the drain rods out and unblock our main ones. Now what really gets my goat doing this, well apart from the obvious smell and general literal **** you have to deal with, is this.

It is not my drains that are blocked!! In a row of three houses ours is the first in the line thus having the shallowest, so guess what? Any blockage hits us first. Now in their wisdom a few years back our next door but one neighbours decided to put a swimming pool in and reroute the drains around this. This constantly leads to washing powder mainly congealing on this bend and blocking said drains.

Now i know this is not my responsablilty but as i said it hits us first and i have rods! Also they have now moved to Australia (not because of the smell i hope) an a couple are renting their place and have no idea of the problems. Also in between us is an empty house so it leaves it upto me every bloody year to do it!

No reason for posting this other than just to let out some anger before i tackle this.

Oh, forgot to add my rods are in my garage, not a problem normally but i have accumilated so much junk in there over the past 9 months that i am actually going to have totally clean it out just to find them.
