Does anyone know about this problem my husband and I are having? A plumber is coming tomorrow to check it out, but I would like others' opinions, experience, or stories!
We had a small slab poured and our finisher pulled the duct tape from the drain in the floor to let out an inch of watery cement on top of slab (don't know for sure how much liquid cement went down the drain) (pvc p-trap and piping for a shower drain).
This is my first experience with cement pour, but as soon as he did it, I knew it wasn't a good idea! The exit pipe cap was already broken from previous work (the plumber failed inspection and had to let water out from pressure test so he could redo plumbing)
The next day after pour, the finisher there for an hour without us, started taking more form boards off and then when we came we saw standing water and was told about the blockage.
We tried everything ourselves, muriactic acid, plumbing and electrical snakes, forced water. Bits of cement came up and also little pieces of plastic (with a purplish, plumbing glue color) NOT rigid like the pvc caps--just like the 6ml vapor barrier we put down!:confused:
Do we have to resort to a jackhammer to our new beautiful slab??
