    If you had as much money to SPARE, as the amount of posts you have made.
    What would you spend it on?

    I so hope it doesn't end up costing you a lot of money.
    Try pouring some caustic soda(powder) down the man hole. You can buy caustic soda from Poundland.

The snake thing goes fine down the sink but I can't get it far down the toilet (although I don't know if it has hit the blockage or if it has got caught on a bend). I think it's time to call in the pros, after having spent the afternoon with plungers and mops and buckets, and got nowhere.

    This happened to my friend. Somehow the roots of a neighbours tree, penetrated the manhole Major expense.
    If it is inside, then hopefully it wont be so costly. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    Was it Red Adair who said if you think it's expensive to call a professional, just wait till you hire an amateur?

    I hope you get your khazi fixed soon, anyway. Sounds pretty grim.

    You know, I don't even swim in the sea for that reason. I'm sure there must be turds floating around in there. And my friend won't swim in the pool as he doesn't like the chlorine. I haven't been swimming for ages now.

    Flick that was So honest. I would opt for the new laptop, at least that is less intrusive.
    Vegas eh? I hope the exchange rate is better by then.
