    Hello everyone, I have a mystery I can't seem to solve. My bathtub is stuck, nothing goes down, even tried pouring Drano and it's just sitting in the tub. I removed the water stopper and ran a 25ft snake with no results. But what's even weirder is that when I use the bathroom sink, the water...

    I don't have a problem to solve but would love to figure out how my problem solved itself. I have shoulder length hair and use Pureology hair products (which seem to clog drains more than others). For 10 years I've had to periodically use the Zip-It to pull out hair and use baking...

    Hello, I've been working in the crawlspace lately and have noticed that when the AC turns on, water begins leaking from below the furnace. I'm not experienced with HVAC systems but from what I understand this is probably a clogged AC condensate line. The problem I'm running into is when I...

    Hi there - I have a sump pit with perimeter drain tile in the northeast in the basement. House is about 30 years old and the drain tile is the black corrugated tile. We bought the house about a year ago. I noticed that the sump barely ever ran and the drain tile was dry even on a rainy day so I...

    I'm just wondering how much plumbers normally charge to unclog a clogged bathtub in Chicago. I guess he will have to do the whole shebang with snake machine to get it fixed because using plunger and Draino did not work. Thanks,

    Hello I'm new here and new to plumbing so go easy on me... I just moved into a trailer for no-rent as long as I do the work on it myself. I am doubtful most of the plumbing is up to code. My kitchen sink will not drain. After several hours the standing water in the sink will eventually go...

    This is a bit of a saga so sorry if there's information overload but I tend to figure better too much info than too little. My husband & I bought our first home, a HUD foreclosure, just after Christmas. We are in South Dakota, btw. It's a modular on a semi-finished basement. It has 3 toilets...

    Hi, we live on the 2nd floor of an apartment building and have a nice outdoor terrace. There are two drains on either side of the terrace (see pics). The drains work fine but when it rains eventually the drain covers become clogged with dirt and leaves, and stop working. (see pics) As a result...

    I had a leak in my bedroom ceiling b/c condensation pipe was clogged and it did no leak into the pan below it. Instead it leaked out of the EZ Trap opening that did not have switch installed; at least that is what I think. How should I go about fixing this issue? Seal the second opening or...

    My kitchen sink was back up after the trap and had a professional come out and snake the drain. He pulled out some nasty stuff and after that the flow was fine and no more clogged/slow drain. 3 hours later I went into my laundry/mud room where our HVAC unit is and the floor drain was...

    Hope this is in the right thread. Been working around the ranch and found an old well. Talked to the family and they stated that it once had great water back in the 60's but hasn't been used since the oil company left. Anyways, I measured down to 60 feet with a rope and chain to hear solid...

    We have been having an issue with our water pressure. Starts out fine eventually trickles off to a very very slow stream. Flush a toilet while a fixture is running and it falls off completely. Showers are impossible! I will attempt to attach photos to assist in understanding my set up. Well...
