|In response to Re: sewer line question|
The plumbers could not tell exactly where the stoppage was occuring, although it's occured at least 4 times this summer...twice necessitating a plumber call. It's definitely affecting the pipe where those 2 bathrooms come in only--there's another upstairs bathroom that is not affected. Another possibility is that the plumbers have said one toilet is old, and not working efficiently--that we might consider replacing at some point. Terry Love also suggested that replumbing might not be called for--that a first option might be a power-assisted toilet.
: Where is the stoppage occurring? It would be unusual for it to plug up in the overhead piping.
: : We have 2 upstairs bathrooms whose drains go into one sewer line that exits the house. We've had 5-6 clogged drain backups since we bought this 35 year old house 2 years ago. The 3" drain is copper, runs horizontally for a couple of feet to a 90 degree horizontal turn continuing to the edge of the wall; at that edge is a second 90 degree connect to a cast iron pipe, which goes down the wall of the house.
