Rice was put into the garbage disposal and the next day the drain was blocked. We tried everything short of cutting the pvc pipes in the basement; with no luck

This is one of the many reasons I detest PVC for drainage other then possibly clear water condensate.

Try filling the sink with clear water about 2" or 3" from the top and trying the disposal.

PVC known for very short radius fittings and air guns should not be used as it can cause this crap to explode and snaking around tight bends is difficult.

Hopefully the installer had the common decency to install clean outs at every change of direction greater then 45 deg or at the base of this waste line.

If not then you going to have to cut the line do the right thing and install an accessible clean out so the next stoppage will be easier to clear.

Got to love builders and plumbers who look to bottom line products and labor to keep costs low for installations and screw the poor buyer.
