I have researched and researched, but it doesnt seem that very many people have had this issue. my house was built late 40's. We have a home warranty plan, and they sent out a pretty lazy plumber. he gave up. we went and rented a plumbing auger which we could not for the life of us, several hours over a couple of days, get the auger to down the correct way of the sewer clean out. i suspect its a tee pipe. is there a tool to help guide it down the right way? i am trying to avoid another plumber, and i dont think my husband wants to pull the toilet up so we can try it from that point.
