In response to Re: 3 cloged bathrooms
: Hello and Merry Christmas to all,

: Nothing ruins a good Christmas like three cloged bathrooms. On the day before Christmas all of our
: shower drains and toilets were cloged. We tried almost everything ourself except for calling the
: plumber and this is what we have done so far to try to solve the problem. First, we use drano / liquid plumber
: chemicals but it didn't help much. Second, we tried using a 25 feet snake on the shower drains but it
: didn't help much either. Third, we tried a 50 feet snake from the outside of the house (there are 2 pipe
: openings on the side of the house, one is right next to the kitchen and on is next to one of the bathroom).
: We suspect there is a blockage somewhere in the main waste line, but using the snake didn't help
: at all so is there something we can do ourself? or it is time to call the plumer?

Tim, rent an electric sewer machine. clean from the line by the bathroom to the main city sewer line. You may need to call the city in to tell you where your city main is. Use at least a 3" bit if you can on this cable to clean your sewer line. Dale Peck LMP
