Evidently you didn't take the last sentence in reply #9 very seriously since you are putting cabinet refinishing a priority . When your roof lands in the neighbor's yard from a gas explosion neither you, the fire department nor the insurance company will be concerned about the appearance of those cabinets . It doesn't happen often but the possibility is there .

Sorry I must have missed that one #9 didn't realize all that. I'll call one and see what I can do.

Toilet


I never heard of a house blowing up because of sewer gas----There are some things I just don't know.

However, fixing it promptly is a good plan---exploding or just leaking--the fix should cost very little and will not take long---going to the store for parts will take as long as the fix.

I have heard of outhouses exploding, but never a plumbing waste line, but given the right circumstances, anything can happen. You want to address the toilet first at any rate, as noxious gas in your home cant be good for you. I dont think its going to be a day at the beach to fix, but it might not be too hard either. We need pictures to make a call. The cabinets can wait.
