    Basement grease trap to main drain blockage corrosion

    My home is from the early 1900's and I have a large main drain that is cast iron. The drains that run to that main one are the kitchen sink, the basement shower, upstairs shower, laundry and upstairs bathroom. The picture is of the grease trap drain that the kitchen sink runs to. Now I moved...

    Help with retrieval: Dropped 3” PVC flat clean out cover into a 4" sanitary sewer clean out

    So, a 3" PVC flat clean out cover fell into a 4" sanitary sewer clean out pipe. I can see it at the bottom, but it’s exactly 10 feet down the vertical pipe, sitting at the bottom and I can’t figure out how to get it out. Tried a shop vac but the 3” cover always drops about a foot off the bottom...

    Toilet "gives back" what was flushed several hours before (Kohler 2-pc)

    Kohler 2-pc toilet was installed 20 years ago in a MIL unit over my garage and worked fine. Now I'm using that area as a home office, so using the toilet from time to time. I will use and flush the toilet, and the next day--there is stuff in the toilet bowl. It's almost like I haven't...

    Bathroom Sink Won't Drain

    We have only been living in this house a few months but have began to notice our bathroom sink won't drain (water sits in the sink and drains very very slowly). I have taken the trap off, it wasn't blocked but gave it a clean anyway. Still the same issue, all other drains in the house seem to...

    Something stuck inside Moentrol

    Hi from DIY frustrationland. Glad this forum showed up in a search...looks like you've seen it all! In our little-used tub/shower, hot was fine, cold was very low flow. After replacing the balancing spool and cartridge, and checking the stop check valve, I took a pic today down the barrel of...

    Upstairs bathroom doesn't drain, downstairs is fine.

    Strange call yesterday. All I got on the phone was the upstairs toilet wasn't flushing well and they needed it unclogged. So grabbing my closet auger I headed over. I had previously installed a Cadet 3 for them in that bathroom upstairs, a nice home from the 40's on Lake Washington. Yep...
