Toilet back up - plunger won't work
I've tried using bleach, Dawn, hot hot water and a plunger - nothing goes through quickly - but the water eventually goes through if it sits for a hour or more. When flushed again/refilled it stops up again so the stopage is past the toilet somewhere.
When we run water elsewhere in the house - the water level rises quickly in the toilet. VERY DISCONCERTING
I just tried a snake and couldn't get it down the toilet any further than 3 feet or so. It was marking up the bottom of the toilet too. I also tried a little liquid drain cleaner down the bathroom sink (can't use it in toilets). Maybe I'll try that in other sinks too.
Any other ideas? I have no idea where or how to use a clean out - or even if there is one. Taking the toilet off is not something I want to do - so it would have to be a plumber or handyman. Meanwhile I can't run much water anywhere in the house. :-(
