  • If you live in a house, get yourself a snake. When I lived in a house, I could usually unclog in minutes. The house did have a bad root problem. I needed a rooter every two years. Now I live in an apartment. We rarely get a clog but when we do, if I can't clear it quickly with the plunger, I call maintenance to bring a snake.

      No, I don't get mad. If it's someone I know well enough, I explain how easily these pipes will clog. Otherwise, I just deal with it.

  • As an electrician I don't work on toilets. Id be mad at the plumbers bill but shut up and pay it. I once left a job over they expected me to change 2 sewage pumps. plumbers change pumps. The last turn out at factory that put the paper in the tiolet and blocked the toilet the cleaner put his head in the toilet before he cleaned it.

  • I helped some friends move to Missouri years ago and stayed with them for a couple of months. The husband's dad (affectionately known as "Pop") lived with them also (until he died). Pop had an advanced case of dementia and we noticed that often after he went to the bathroom, the toilet would get clogged. Plungers and snakes did no good. We removed the toilet and found that he had been cleaning himself with wash rags and flushing them down the toilet. ΒΆ If you have to spend two hours unclogging the toilet, I'd say you have a serious problem.
