Recently a relatively minor flood was experienced in the 175 building due to a severely clogged common drain coming from the kitchen area plumbing stack.
The blockage was quite significant and required disassembly of some common plumbing lines. The cause of the blockage appeared to be due to someone regularly disposing of what appeared to be coffee grounds, down the drain.
Please never dispose of grounds, grains, nor any form of grease down the drains, including the garbage disposal. Such disposal, whether using the drain directly or using a garbage disposal unit,virtually guarantees that a blockage will eventually occur and worse, may result in physical damage to another unit and much disruption to occupants. Further, this can give rise, in a severe case, to tens of thousands of $ of damage and insurance claims, for which we can all end up paying for if fault cannot be attributed. In a clear and known at fault situation, substantial to all costs will be for the account of the owner of the offending unit.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Your volunteer Board of Directors,
David, Lawrence, Rob, Ron D. and Ron S.
