Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help you solve your problem
You could still have a partial stoppage. Perhaps something is lodged in the bowl that the snake goes right by. The best way to snake a bowl is with a closet auger not a sink drain snake.
If this is what you used then the next step is to pull the bowl off the floor and look for the obstruction from the outlet side.
i used one. it was a 3 ft auger.
then pulling the bowl off the floor is the next step.
It is unlikely that the problem is in the drain line. It almost never clogs up unless there is a mail line stoppage
if this was the case water would probably back up into the tub
crap! i was hoping not to have to do that. what about attacking it from the plug side in the pipe in the crawl space?
That will only work if you have a main line stoppage. Unless other fixtures are backing up I doubt a main line stoppage is the problem
do you mean the toilet is bad and
it needs replacement
If you are lucky you may be able to clear the obstruction from the outlet end. But sometimes an object can get lodged in an inaccessible section of the toilet trap and it can't be cleared
Then you need a new toilet
will i use the auger at this end?
if you can't see the obstruction to pull it out then running the auger in the opposite direction sometimes works
do you have any more questions?
sorry>>thanks for the info>>i will try that
