I did not discover this until around 6PM.
I am now living on subfloor, with new bamboo hardwood slowly going in throughout.
That kind of stinks. Sorry to hear.
We had sink backups two Thanksgivings in a row before we learned that potato peelings basically turn into concrete when run down a garbage disposal. I don't know how my wife and I both lived 40+ years without learning that.
