The owner of this home had complained about the kitchen sink never draining properly and always being prone to clogs. You think maybe this was the problem?
The original cast iron drain pipes from the late 1940's had seen better days. Constant clogs and a backed up sink were needing constant attention, and a plumbing upgrade was sorely needed. The owner could no longer use the garbage disposal out of fear that Sunday dinner might be ruined again!
I got to work on finding the issue with a visual inspection of the situation. After a complete tear-out of the floor and wall, I was able to replace the old rotten drain pipes with brand new pipes. Plubming upgrade = problem solved!
