Are there any charitable companies or organizations that would assist us with a sink and toilet backup? We live in the Laurel Maryland area. My sister and I are on limited incomes due to cancer treatments.
I would contact HUD.org, Habitat for Humanity or a local church.
I was told there is a sewer lateral defect in my underground plumbing outside of my house that I'm responsible for. I don't have any money. I have tried the H.E.L.P program but was told that I am not eligible. My water has been turned off, because the defect was not fixed. I am a single mother who has been assisting my aunt who passed away in October from cervical cancer. I am just trying to get everthing back together at my house and now this. I really need help.
Lateral sewer lines are the homeowners responsibility. You could try going to HUD.org, and clicking on your state.
I am on disability and for a week I have no drainage in my home. I can't effort any plumber.
How can I get some help? It's an emergency! Where can I look?
Are you on a septic? If so, maybe it needs to be pumped out. Or, if you have trees, perhaps you have tree roots in your line. In that case, there is a product you can put into your drains that kills the roots and opens the lines back up.
