Help with Tenant law? Is this legal?

Hi guys!

My roommate and I have shared an English Basement in Petworth for over a year now. However, our apartment recently flooded due to a drainage problem. It cost almost $3000 to clean and repair and now our landlords are trying to charge us the costs of the damage.

They are claiming that it stemmed from flushing tampons (which I seriously doubt for many reasons). And citing the abnormal usage part of our lease to justify this charge.

What do you think? Is the law on our side on this one? What steps can we take to protect ourselves?

Dear PoPville – Anyone had PEX pipes installed? Recommendation for a plumber?

Dear PoPville – We have an old Mt Pleasant row-house with a galvanized water potable system that has “rust” written all over it. I am sure this is a time bomb for many old houses in DC. We have set our mind on re-piping with PEX since we have heard predominately good things about it. Has anyone actually tried replacing galvanized pipes with PEX? Any issues? I was going to repair any damage to the walls myself to save on costs. …suggestions of plumbers with PEX experience are greatly appreciated!!
