It started as a small drip

under the sink

which an incompetent “plumber” sent by the Village maintenance head turned to a warzone slash swimming-pool

always get a certified plumber

good thing my wife knows some good plumber sub-contracting for their company. The plumber was able to figure out that it was the Malunggay tree roots in front of the house that blocked the drainage pipe

so the tree had to go

bye-bye tree

And now our indoor sink is back to normal. Well it still needs a coat of paint but at least the sink is now usable. 🙂

Morals of the story:

  • Always get a certified plumber to diagnose and fix leaks and blockages.
  • Always get commitment that the plumber can put back whatever they demolish.
  • Dont plant a shrub or tree on top of your drainage pipe.
