Hi my name isXXXXX will do my best to solve your problem
You have a partial stoppage in the line, this is why its backing up into the other fixtures. |You will need to clean the stoppage with a powered sewer ma\chine in order to clear this out, and the backup will not happen.
The washer puts out alot of water while in drain cycle |(its pumped) and thats why you notice the backup then (its a partial clog)
and the hard water at your place is not the cause
Do you have anymore questions on this?
wher is the stoppage located?
somewhere past the washer
can we snake out the clog?
its not possiable to tell you an exact spot just that its past the washer in the line
yes with a\ powered sewer machine
if trying to do this yourself you can rent a\ machine for around ||$50 at a rental center
or pay a sewer company around $100 to do it for you
if doing it yourself, pull the toilet thats backing up and run the snake through there, it will open the clog
Where can I rent a machine?
look in your local phone book, and look under tool rental
most are open on sat
thanks a lot . this will help.
no problem good luck have a nice night
my husband is trying to open the main preventer which is very hard to open, is that the stoppage you are talking about? he said the problem is the backflow.What do you think
he opened the two small plug which he did again last week.he took out lot of tissue nad feces. the big one is the one he cannot opened. he said its the backflow that is failing. is that big one will create a flood when opened? How can that backflow be replaced if its the problem.
he said backflow preventer
So you mean if the valve is not failing , it could be the sewer is back up. I check the neighbor but they said they dont have a problem. Is that valve can be replaced by us or I need to call a plumber.
If you said sewer is backup , you meant there is a clog somewhere in the house pipes?
