    Let's say, you come home from work and find there has been a sewer
    backup in your neighborhood and
    your home has sewage all the way up to your ceiling.
    What do you think you should do?
    Raise the ceilings; or, pump out the sewage?
    Your choice is coming this November, 2012 !!!
