Always got 2+ projects on my plate. I fix one thing. Something else breaks. Never fails. Guess it's like that for many folks.
Little brick bungalow in midwest US, built in 1954.
The bath sink drain stopped up very abruptly last nite. It's always run slow, has what looks like 1.25 " pipe running into the wall. All original plumbing in bathroom.
I put bakg soda, Drano crystal, and a pot of boiling water down it. Plungered it. No help. Got out my $6 snake, no help. Bought a $30 Ridgid auger, worked and worked it, no help.
There's 2 little closets between the bathroom and a bedroom. The big stack runs right by the toilet, and is maybe 4' from where the drain enters the wall. I got an easy 4' of snake thru there at least twice unless I miss my guess. Snake feels like it bottoms, but I figger it just ran into the far side of the big drain pipe.
What am I missing here? How could it still be stopped up? There's no perceptible change in the restricted (maybe a teaspoon/minute) flow.
Any/all help much appreciated.
