Mother-In-Law Enroute and. Guest Rm toilet leaking!
OF COURSE this is the day my mother in law is arriving in town - I went in to do one last check on the guest room and bathroom and two things: the edge of the carpet by the bathroom was wet. I felt around the toilet base and it is wet. All clean water.
Then I looked in the tub shower and there were the remains of a slight back up that looked like DIRT. Horrified I went to the other downstairs bathroom and found the shower there had dirt remnants.
We're on a septic, but I had it pumped in August. We do have a LOT of houseguests and do a lot of laundry nearly every day, run a dishwasher etc etc but YIKES.
I already called for another pumping just in case but the water at the base of the toilet has me befuddled. I will call a plumber but what should I know???? THANKS!
