Thread: floor drain stopper

  1. #1

    Default floor drain stopper

    I Have A Basement Floor Drain That Backs Up When The Washer Drains. I Had A Plumber Put In A Stopper That Lets The Drain Work But Will Not Let The Washer Discharge Come Back Up The Drain.
    It Was Clogged, We Cleaned It And Placed It In The Drain. It No Longer Works. Are There Different Types Of Drain Stoppers.

    If your drain is backing up I would suggest you call a plumber oir drain cleaning company and have it professionally cleaned.

    As Cass Mentioned, I Would Hire Someone To Clean The Drain So That You Address The Problem, Not The Symptoms Of The Bigger Problem.

    When You Cap the Drain Your Problems Will Get Worse As The Water Has No Place To Displace To.
