My toilet is not flushing and water is backing up into my shower/tub, what is wrong?
You either have a clogged drain or sewer line. We usually use a drain cleaning machine or a rooting machine. This is a cable type drain machine that sends a long cable down your drain usually attached with some sort of cutting head at the end. This cutting head will cut through roots or will clean out what ever is blocking the sewer and drain pipes. The cable comes in different sizes to fit different fixtures from tubs to small sinks and large sewer lines. What should I avoid flushing down the toilet to prevent stoppage. Technically you shouldnt flush anything down the toilet, other than human waste and toilet paper.
