said by onebadmofo:Excellent decision on your part. In stead on spending untold more energy and attention to the brass plug you corrected your problem.
In the end I called rotorooter and they snaked the line from the street. He said (and I seen it) the trap at the street went down about 12 feet. That's 12 feet there, and then another 50, 60 feet to house...yeah, I would have been screwed doing it on my own. Cause what took him 20 to 30 minutes to do, would have taken me another day or 2 to figure out. And not having access to be able to shower, do dishes, laundry and use the toilet, just wasn't acceptable.
Yeah it cost $355.00 but, it's done. And now I can drop a log I've been holding onto for hours.
...did that sound "commercially" enough?
And thanks to everyone here for your input. If I ever have to take that plug out, I at least have this thread to go by.
And now that I seen someone do it, I may just be able to try and tackle it myself if it is to happen again. ...maybe.
