    Hey guys,

    Ran into an issue in my bathroom yesterday that isn't cool. Hoping you guys can explain what is going on. Here's the scoop:

    Recently my bath tub started to drain slow. Simultaneously while the tub is draining the toilet will bubble. Now the minute I turn on the shower the toilet will immediately start to bubble.

    Any ideas?

    Hopefully this is an easy fix. I don't need anymore projects.

    Thanks

    Tom

    bubbles

    More precisely, you have a main line stoppage and you do not have the experience or equipment to DIY.

    Is this best delt with by local plumber or a roto rooter type company?

    Last plumber I had at my place says he doesn't even snake lines anymore.

    drain

    Local plumber who snakes lines, not a national franchise such as your second choice.

    Would you elaborate on your reply? I've used the "national franchise" mentioned and they seem to do a good job. I had planned on calling them this week to clear a clogged line for me.

    Just curious...

    I would not go with that company the prices they charge around here is atleast $200.00 more than I charge :eek:

    If you call around and ask for a price over the phone you will be better off. Knowing the over all length will help to get a price before they come out.

    If you used any company before the prices have gone up sometimes alot over the years.

    I work for the other National Franchise by the way.
