    My 2 year old used to play the game of will it flush. I had to lock down the lids on the toilets in case the older kids would forget the shut the bathroom door. I even had to remove the toilet from the floor a few times to get things out of the trap on the toilet. Funniest thing I removed was a barbie doll.

    I imagine the cucka sucker guy probably told you that dumping hot grease down the drain is not a wise habit to continue . . . just because it can cool down, harden and clump up.

    If only I had written our former fire inspector earlier I could have told you exactly what the problem was . . . or vice versa . . . turns out in an e-mail I received today he had the very same problem earlier this summer only he ended up digging up the whole system before he discovered that filter/baffle. Rinsed it out and replaced it . . . had the same type of back up and everything.
