Before I go buy a snake or hire a plumber, I want to see if I can do this myself.
I'm in the middle of a bathroom remodel. I removed the toilet and installed a new drain pipe that I haven't cut to size yet (haven't tiled yet).
I used a small rag to block the sewer gases and it seems to have been sucked into the drain line over time.
This toilet is about 20-25 feet from the other working toilet, so the line runs at least that long. In between the toilet drain line and where it meets the other toilet drain line, there is my new shower line that still needs to be connected.
I am not sure how far along down the line that the rag got...but I want to know the likelihood that this rag hasn't gotten too far down the line to retrieve. Do you think it would stop before the shower ptrap, or could it move further down the line from suction or whatever from the other toilet being flushed?
What's the best method to figure this out? I have about a 3 foot tall subfloor that I'm not afraid of going into.
I haven't had any plumbing issues yet. No overflowing toilets, etc.
Think I can find this rag? It's part of an old t-shirt - about 4 inches wide by 12 inches long...
Thanks in advance,
Fran
