Clogged House Trap w/ floaters ewwwwh!
 
Yeah forgot to check the old house trap was working properly and the plumber didnt say a word. Tenant let me in today and looks like the house trap is completely clogged couldnt get my snake down it maybe corrosion too. House is from 1920's. Friend said I should take it out and put a straight piece in with a clean out. Is there any hope for getting it flowing so the poo will exit the floor drains in the basement, it stinks and I need to clear this out the plumber didnt say anything so looks like they didnt want to bother with it....jeeez

Power auger. You got nothing to loose. Worst that happens is you go through the pipe if it really is that corroded.
