we live in houston. we recently had a lot of rain over a period of 2 days. our toilet started to overflow when we flushed it. the water made it to the rim. we plunged. it drained the toilet, but then backed up into the bathtub. we had sewage & toilet paper in the tub! gross! we then flushed again. the toilet drained, but seemed to leak from the base clean, clear water. again the water backed up into the bathtub. the rain finally stopped & we checked once again the next day. the toilet works fine- no backup, no leaking, just like new. the bathtub on the other hand- will drain, but only very sloooowwwly. we tried liquid plumber to no avail (probably b/c of all the soggy, wet toilet paper). we tried to plunge (it sounded like the water was moving & gurgling, but no quick fix). now our bathtub is unusuable. help!! do we need to snake it?
No announcement yet.
