hi,i know nothing about technical terms, so please bear with me.We had a backflow problem last week or so that had the kitchen sink 1st floor bath sink and toliet backing up into our 1st floor tub.The basement bath and all other plumbing below worked fine.We consulted a plumber by phone and he said to access the main drain in the basement and rent a rodder from a home supply store. My husband accessed it alright... and we had the basement full of waste to prove it.
SO, we rented the machine, cleaned it out and everything worked great... that is until tonight went i smelled rotten eggs in the first floor bath and flushed the toliet, just to see it backflow into the tub.
Is it the same problem? Did we just clear enough of the drain to get by for the week?Is it a more serious problem that a professional should address? Thank you in advance for your replies.
