Blocked/leaking waste pipe bleurgh!!

Found 19th Jan 2010
Well I feel well and truly ready to vomit!!!

Have had a nasty smell in my kitchen on and off for a while, assumed it was the bin getting a bit smelly so kept cleaning it out. Anyways Sunday it got really bad, kept using air freshener and been scrubbing kitchen today. Smell was worse when I got home from the shops so had a little investigate.

Pulled the chipboard panels off in cupboard where syou switch the water off only to find what looks like a pool of sewage and/or food around the waste pipe- TRULY GRIM!!!!!!!!!

Have just spent half an hour scooping out what I can only to find that all the concreting around the waste pipe has disintegrated so was scooping out sewage covered rubble (cue the vomiting-I sooo nearly did) My Dad coming over in bout 20 mins to have a look see if it's something he can fix. I doubt it though coz liquid looked like it was oozing up. I think there may be a blockage underground.

Someone mentioned on here the other day bout their waste water pipes freezing, could it be something like that, or am I gonna have to call Dyna-rod out or something?

God I feel sick now lol!!

Truly!!!! Cannot get rid of the smell out of my nose, went to get LO from school, and could smell it everywhere, that was before I even started clearing it, I had just found it!!
I blame women with letting their damn hair go down the sink in the shower :x

Took me a day to unblock our outside drain and poo from next door had got trapped on some weeds down there too, yuk!

She never unclogged them and when ever you pour bleach on it the chrome coating comes off. Where do you get the real metal ones from?
Could be a build up of fat? Try caustic soda and cold water...

You have to take the hair out otherwise whats the point of pouring bleach over the top lol

Mine still look like new because i take it out BEFORE puring anything down the drain.

Well i would:p
Do you live in house?, or flat?, it's possible that if the foul sewer drainpipe is blocked underground, then the stuff seeping up from the floor could just be what is backed up in the soil stack from the loo on the upperfloor if you in a house, or neighbours above if you in a flat.

Before doing anything on the internal pipe get your dad to check the manholes, see if they are clear cos there's no point in him doing anything inside if they are, all he will do is release what has backed up out through the kitchen waste if he does, as water/sewage will always take the path of least resistance, i.e. an open pipe.

Good luck :-D
i know how you feel. my front garden is covered in excrement. The nice people from anglian water are sorting out the drains and coming to clean up the mess for me.
doubt its sewage as it wouldnt back up into sink waste pipes. Probably just a block u bend so simply remove it and clean it out. Then use some sink & pipe unblocker down it when re-connected overnight

Sorted kind of without pros. My dad borrowed some rods of the plumber on our road, with the help of a hose pipe and shovel job=done. All I can smell is poo ewwww
