Absolutely Heroic Plumber Takes On "Volcano Of Poo" Argyle Drains/ Facebook

An absolute hero of a plumber has gone viral after posting photos of the "volcano of poo" he had to take on at work recently.

Steven, who works for Argyle Drains in the UK, was called out to what anyone would figure to be a routine job in a woman's basement bathroom.

Instead he rocked up to what can only be described as a poo-nami, with the room totally and utterly covered in shit.


"One of my guys was gagging and retching when we first showed up to the job," Steven later told The Daily Star, explaining that the owner had returned home from a trip to find her bathroom in the above state.

It was apparently caused by a blockage in the drains from the apartments above, causing the fluid to bypass the appropriate pipes and flood into the poor woman's toilet.

"[It] took three hours of rubber gloves and hard work," Steve admitted. "The poo was under the carpet and absolutely everywhere.

"It was the worst job I've ever had, but I was very satisfied at the state I left the flat in.

"I couldn't believe how well I'd done. Everything was salvageable apart from underneath the floor."

And what a job it was; check out the after pictures.


Which is extremely impressive in itself but what about the smell?

"I was a cleaner 30 years ago so the smell doesn't faze me," Steve added. "But when I got home my wife wasn't happy.

"It smelt so awful she made me sit naked in the porch, she wouldn't let me in the house."

Get that man a beer.
