We recently stayed in a house in Atlanta (as corporate housing) and two day after we left, the property owner sent us this in an email:
"Some one in your party stopped up the comode and caused it to overflow and thus damaging the sheetrock in my ceilings."
The toilet was fine when we left and it was even fine a couple of hours later when the property manager checked it. It wasn't until the next night that the property manager found the overflow and damage to the ceiling (which was pretty extensive!). What could have happened?
The owner said that we left the toilet running, but I've never known a running toilet to overflow. He also swears that the manager didn't flush the toilet the night we left. So how does an untouched toilet suddenly overflow?
