In response to Re: Need advice bad!!!!! Sorry this is so long.
: My house seems like it's falling apart with plumbing problems. I have a leaky faucet in the bathtub that pours out hot water so, we started cutting the hot water off and using it only for baths, etc. Recently, when you turn on the cold water in the kitchen -- cold water pours out of the tub and stops once you cut the faucet off in the kitchen. The toilet in the main bathroom is inoperable -- it would stop up and the water would come back in the bowl almost spiling on the floor -- I have used a plunger and bought too different types of snakes but nothing works. I replaced the flapper valve system in the toile in the master bedroom and it works fine but, while I was working in the tank -- two of the screws that hold the tank to the bowl broke off (they were really rusty) -- I replaced the screws but, now we have a leak onto the floor from one of the screws -- if tha'ts not enough the skinny tube from the wall to the toilet is leaking water at the wall. I know I need to call a professional
: plumber but, I am truly scared at the what the cost will be. Also, I bought a new toilet to replace the clogged one and I need this put in!!!! How long would these jobs take to complete? Could you take a guess and let me know how much I am looking forward to spending? It seems like the longer I wait to get these things done something else breaks down.... Thanks in advance. Angela

I'm assuming that "water pouring out of the tub" when you turn on the kitchen faucet means water is running into the tub from the drain. If so, it's probably not all that bad. The toilet backing up and the tub filling is due to a backup in the drain line. Get a local plumber to snake the drains. The leaky tub faucet is minor repair, setting the toilet not hard for a pro, and probably a simple fix for the leaky toilet supply that lost its "fit" when you replaced the old toilet bolts. Have the plumber that snakes the drains take care of it all in one trip.
