Got the cap off; got it back on
I got the cap off. I have a hand-crank snake that I've used for other drains, and I got small clumps of stuff out.
Picasso must have built the drain -- I put nearly 4 feet of the snake in, going from the trap toward the stack, and it feels as though it's all turns. The trap is about a foot from the toilet, it seems like the run from the trap to the main drain (is that called the stack?) ought to be a couple feet at most.
I also did the run from the tub to the trap, and there's no clog in that section.
I got the cap back on, and it's not leaking, but the drain is still slow. Now that I've done it once, I guess I can do it again, and work the snake some more, and see if I just didn't go far enough.
you got to ram it all the way home
you cant just assume that 4 feet is enough just cause
you think or it looks like it is ....
if it looks like 4 feet was enough, then at least go 8 feet
you want to hear that cable banging around in the stack....
you are very lucky that you were able to get that
plug back on without a leak.....
