Help: Possible Clog in the main drain?

abou202July 5, 2012

Our problem started couple months ago but my wife said over a year ago. We are in a two story house. When you flush the toilet down stairs, you hear a gurgle sound/noise in the kitchen sink and sometimes when you use the kitchen sink, this same toilet gurgles. Now the past day, the toilet backed up and when you flush, the water will not go down. It's gotten worst, when you use the sink in the toilet and kitchen, the toilet backs up and the water slowly goes down in the kitchen sink.

Please help

Yes, there appears to be a clog in the drain. A call to a plumber or rooter service is in order.

You may have roots in your main drain that need to be cleared away. As Homebound said, call a company that does this sort of work. I used a company called Zoom and they have franchises in many places. They did a much better and longlasting job than the rotorooter types. (I have no interest in the company).

Here is a link that might be useful: Zoom
