    i've been having a number of plumbing problems:

    my bathtub drain has been spitting up a viscous black, sulfuric substance, grease and whatever has accidently gone down the kitchen sink, whenever i turn the water on in the kitchen. i know my drain is clogged, maybe not fully, but it is very very slow draining. i've tried to declog the drain as best as i can with home remedies. but what other advice do you have?

    First, quit dumping chemicals into it. Then call a plumber to properly auger the drain.

    I agree with Gary Swart. You should call a plumber and have him take care of it.

    Actually, an idle spactator along a canal, watching the canal boats. Not many of those in most parts of the U.S.A.

    i actually haven't dumped any chemicals into it. i've only tried to remove what is immediately clogging the drain, but does anyone know if the problem is greater than just a clogged drain?

    A canal is full of water and plumbers deal with water and in some cases the water in a house may come from a canal so I am bending the definition a bit but I think it fits and it is a good name for customers that watch. :)
