In response to Re: frozen drainage line?
: Hi,
: I'm about at my wits end. My house was built in 1985-86 and is on a slab. At least three times since Nov, I've had backup into my tub/toilet(and this time bathroom sink) never kitchen sink. Now as the last time it was extremely cold temps. I'm suspecting that something freezes as those two times after a day or two the tub/toilet drained and was ok. This time its not moving but its still freezing outside. What can I do as I've never had these kind of problems during previous winters?
: Thanks,

The line will only freeze if you have something wrong with your drainage line in the first place. A properly operting drainage system never has anything in it to freeze. So, it may or may not be frozen. You should have it augered by a pro. Large power augers can be dangerous and it takes experience and skill to operate them.
