all toilets in house will not drain.


My toilets will not drain, tried ridx 2 days ago, just had it pumped last year, gurgling in other bathrooms when we run water or try to flush!

sounds like your main is plugged, are all your toilets on the same floor? The gurguling you describe is air being forced thru your fixtures when it is displaced by water when you flush

You need to open a clean-out on your main line and snake the line with a heavy-duty plumber's snake to clear it.
If that doesn't do it (which it should), you may have to remove the toilets and snake from there too if things have backed up to them past the main line clean-out.
Good Luck!

By heavy duty, he means a 5/8 or 3/4" cable. Those little hand crankers you get at the home store will not do a bit of good. I'd call a plumber or drain cleaner.
