|In response to Re: toilet-offset flange|
The obstruction could be just in a short run in the toilet drainline. It will not neccessarily affect the other plumbing fixtures. Is that is the case. I don't have the luxury of being there unlike your plumber, so I don't want to overstep his expertise in this matter.I'm sure you can appreciate my position. Saying all that, however, why dont you run a snake through the line, or at the very least, with the toilet removed, flush water through the line. If water starts filling up the drainline and coming to the top of the toilet flange, then you know you do have a blockage in the line.

: The plumber was here again today,each time the first thing that is done is to use the snake tool,then they pull the toilet up off the floor to see under it, each time this is done my ceramic tile is damaged. When you asked "Has the plumber pulled the toilet off the flange and run a snake down the toilet drainline."? The answer is i don't think so. They use the snake only before the toilet is pulled up.Once that's done you can see paper that has piled up and will not flow out. I asked him about that and i was told that if it was in the line other problems would be happening, for example, maybe the bathtub or sink would be backing up. What do you think? Thanks for all your comments.
