What an Easter Sunday. My wife clogged the upstairs bathroom toilet. She didn't mention it to me until after both of us had taken showers.
I was able to unclog it with a plunger, which was not easy because the bowl was full to the top! (Yuch!) A short time later just before heading to church I went to use the downstairs bathroom to find water(I hope just water) dripping down onto the toilet through the bathroom vent. There are two other areas of the downstairs ceiling that now appear to be water damaged.
I suspect that the main drain is still clogged. Any thoughts, suggestions, prayers are accepted. I am reluctant to open up the ceiling without some thoughts on what I might be up against. The house is just under 10 years old. I've attempted to map the water damage agiast known water sites upsatirs like toilets showers and tubs. They really don't seem to line up to me- making me wonder if the drainlines between the upstairs and downstairs cracked.
