What is going on? I borrowed a snake from my neighbor but he said it looks like something caught in the drain. My father (who lives in North Dakota said not to run any water what so ever. I am picking up the water with a cup.......trying to stick it into a backet but plunging isn't working. What should I do? Is there anything I can do.....these are the thingie magiggies I am using. BARF! The water stinks! The tubes are connected to my Water Softener and I think this thing.......
