I have an investment property that is 18 months old. This week the tenants noted the the showers and sink were noted draining, toilets were gurgling. An emergency plumber was called and noted concrete and building rubble blocked the pipes.
I never did any renovations after handover using concrete. There was no way that I would have thought concrete blocked the pipes. I initially suspected it was toilet paper thus I never thought to contact the builder first. The maintenance liability warranty is only 3 months and structural warranty is 7 years.
Should you have called your builder initially without knowing a concrete was the cause ?
Is plumbing issue part of structural warranty?it is hard to know at first, if you do not know the cause of blockage without inserting a camera.
In this case, can I hold the builder liable to cover my plumber's bill of $600? They argued that they should have been contacted first.
Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi The orientation of the glass is irrelevant, it has the same noise stopping power either way. Ed
