What to do with my clogged toilet/shower?
posted by Bulgaroktonos to Home & Garden (6 answers total)
My wife and I just moved into a new rental house, which has been great, except for toilet/shower. When we first used the toilet, it started to overflow and there was clearly some toilet water coming out of the drain in the shower.
We called the landlord who called a plumber, and everything seemed like it was fine for about half a day, when it started again. We called again, and the plumbers came out again, and everything seemed like it was fine for about a week, until this morning when I was showering and started hearing air bubbles coming out of the toilet. Sure enough, the shower was clogged and flushing the toilet led to air bubbles out of the shower drain.
Is there anything we can do? Should we just call the plumber again? This early in the lease they haven't been charging us for the plumbers, but I think they might decide to blame it on us pretty soon and charge us for them. Any idea what the plumbers have missed on two trips?
