Actually, an update on the plumbing. Roto-rooter came out earlier this week and did a "temporary" fix, so we were able to return to some semblance of normalcy. The owner gave permission to do a permanent fix and they came out to dig after PG&E 811 service marked the dig area. They sent out two guiys who dug a 10' x 5' hole. I took a s**t by then remembered that they were digging, so (after I pulled up my pants) I walked outside and asked if I could flush and they said, yeah it's OK to flush. We couldn't find the pipe. We dug down 5 ft. and couldn't find it. "I think that you need to call your office, because (after I noticed the logo on his shirt indicating that he was from the plumbing company that ran the camera) one of your managers ran the camera.". Couldn't find the pipe . . . .Couldn't find the PIPE????? Well, at least we can do clothes (for the time being) and there's a spot for my car in the driveway.
