Little black worms are coming out of my sink!

Our bathroom sink has been getting clogged up off and on for about a month now. Usually the water goes back down but not this time. For the last two days the water in the sink hasn't went down. My father has been trying to plung it out but it doesn't work.

Today he plunged the sink and LITTLE BLACK WORMS started coming out of the drain! WHAT THE FUCK?!

Now, we have to wait until tommorow for the plummer to come. These fucking things keep swiming around clinging to the sink and trying to climb out!

I fucking brush my teeth at that sink!

I blame DC's lead filled water.

I don't have a camera and if I did I wouldn't go back in there. I haven't been in there for awhile now and they might have a formed a government or some shit to take me down.

The plummer is going to be fucking pissed when he has to work with those little things around him.

You realize if you don't go in and keep tabs on them they could overflow the sink overnight and completely run around the house while you sleep, and if you sleep with your mouth open . . .

From a quick google search:

quote:
Today, our tubs and toilets stopped up after my daughter flushed an empty toilet and it overflowed. We have plunged and used an auger down the toilets and the tub drains (the bathrooms are back to back). We got mold and some sort of alien worm up into our tubs! They are about 1/2 inch long and ALIVE. We are now using Liquid Plumber and the drains are very slowly going down.

Any ideas on what the "worms" are. We have a ten-year-old house with a septic tank. This problem happened about a year ago except without the worms! That time everything started draining while auguring and we never felt the clog.

The worms are about the size of an inchworm and black. They have circular ridges around them. The worms went the tubs this morning but everything is still clogged. The kitchen sink is fine except the commodes gurgle if the kitchen sink is left running for a minute.

I have a book with pictures of various living creatures. The only thing I can find that might resemble what you have (it might fit the bill) is a millipede. They are from 1 to 5 inches long, black, with bands (ridges). If you were to look closely, do they have many tiny, tiny legs?


If so, this is what you have. They live in damp, dark places with the rocks, wood, leaves, and soil. They have to be millipedes. I can't see a worm (no legs) crawling up a slimy drain pipe. You must have a break in a line somewhere and they are getting in by way of the ground outside.


We had a plumber come this afternoon and he got roots out of the line. We are ok now. They were worms, not millipedes. They didn't climb up the pipes, They basically backwashed up. The plumber said they were nothing to worry about! They were just eating "crap"! Sorry about that. Thanks again!

Black Worms can grow 10 to 12 inches in length, nest deep into the impacted colon wall, and leave the colon wrapped in 'yellow acid water'.

Sleep well.

A long time ago at camp I saw those worms coming out of the shower drain and I absolutely refused to take a shower for the rest of the camp week.

I know what you are talking about and the worms are fucking gross.

This reminds me of that one X-Files episode which scared the shit out of me when I was 8.

And that thing in the Tremors poster is definitely not a Graboid.

I thought for a second that this thread said Little black worms are coming out of my stink!

That would have been unfortunate.

I already put some bleach in there. That just made them wiggle out of the water faster. It must have burned them or something to make them move that fast.

Well don't stop, saturate what little water is in there until it is mostly bleach, then block the drain. They'll either die or mutate into bleach breathing monstrosities. I don't think the latter is gonna happen though...

Cover the small hole in the front of the sink when you plung it, if you don't all the air pressure is lost through the hole instead of forcing the drain open.

I had to learn this the hard way a few years ago.

Those bastard worm things in RE0? Yeah, in your sink. They're gonna fuse together to form one of those freaky gooey zombies that are hard as fuck. I hope you have a hunting rifle.

At hardware stores, they sell some really awesome drain cleaner -- the kind with a huge warning sticker and an outer plastic bag wrapping. Buy a jug of that stuff and use it... the worms won't come back...

We had a clog in our tub, looked like there was miles of composting cardboard down in those pipes... used that stuff... bam, clear pipes. We probably killed half the eco system too.

Mouth, ears, nose, anus, pee hole, etc. Those worms have a habit of making a home where ever it looks comfortable.

Sweet dreams emmerdale.
