  • Please help ME before I RIP my head off!!!!

    Ok, 1st, I am a busy mom of 5 little rats, um I mean kids, and I don't have money to pay a plummer. Your help will be appreciated. Two of my toilets will not flush. I don't know what is wrong.

    I tried liquid plummer, I used a toilet auger, I tried a shop vac, I lifted one toilet, I pushed a hanger all the way through, I looked in both ends with a flashlight, and I looked down the flange. I can't find anything. I am afraid to put the toilet back because I have not found any problem.

    What else can I do to diagnose my toilet problem and fix it?

    Thank you, Caryn

    You have a mainline clog and will have to find a way to "afford" a plumber/draincleaner.

        That would be when something is in your main sewer line stopping it up. It could be tree roots, a toy, heck I even pulled a golf ball back once...

          Thank you. Is there any way I could find and try to un clog the main drain myself?

            Sure you could,

            But since I notice your an 'E-Bay Seller' I was wondering if you could share ALL your secrets to making a living off E-Bay? I got some old golf clubs I would like to sell...

              Just kidding, so tell me the layout of your house plumbing wise.

              Are the toilets on the same level?

              How's everything else draining?

                If you can't afford to own a house, then you should sell it. One of the benefits of renting is that the landlord is responsible for repairs. A professional service plumber is your best bet in this situation. Even if you manage to diagnose the problem properly and fix it yourself, it will cost time and money.

                  Sure, I can share that info. If you want to sell something on eBay the more feedback you have the more money you will make. The best way to make the most money aside from that is to have good photos, good titles, a clear description, and a starting price that will attract bidders.

                  Now, back to my problem. My sewer and water company has a box outside to do something with the septic system should there be clogging. Should I call them?

                      Well if you do want to sell those golf clubs, I offered my 2 cents anyway, cause I thought you were serious.

                      My toilets are all on the same level.

                      I have another toilet that is working fine.

                      My sinks work fine.

                      One out of three of my showers only runs hot water, no cold.

                      We have a split plan, and the two clogged toilets are not on the same side of the house. There is a working toilet on the same side as one of the clogged toilets.

                        The one shower not having cold has nothing to do with the task at hand.

                        Your saying you have the toilet pulled, and flange exposed?

                            I was having a quick laugh.

                            Funny I'm helping more people out in this section than you...

                              Yes I have the toilet pulled and the flange exposed. Sorry for the delay. I was helping a kid.
