Plumbing fun

There are a number of reasons that someone might have to leave early from work. There are some that are good and some that are bad. However, one of the worst ones is going home early from work because of plumbing "issues". Once I got home it turned out that the water wasn't as bad as I thought though. A couple rounds with the Shop Vac got most of it up. A big thanks to her dad for bringing over his Shop Vac and cleaning up much of it before I got home.

It didn't seem to hit the carpet/drywall/etc so there doesn't appear to be any damage. We just needed to deal with the source of the water. It turned out the floor drain was just logged and when the washing machine tried to drain empty it just ended up on the concrete floor. It would turn out that the longest amount of time was the few hours to get a plumber out, followed by another two he took to snake the drain. He apparently gave up on his initial tool and had to get another that is was a bit larger. The upside is we know have a much cleaner drain line and a much cleaner basement floor.
