I think Mar is in for a lot of re-plumbing.
naw this is just hooked up to a couple of sinks... which makes this worse... There is no **** in there, but there was a kitchen sink for 60 years, so I suspect grease build up (after a plumber friend said so). Will replace everything tomorrow if all goes well. Or maybe my kid has been shltting in the sink and pushing it down the drain with his fingers...

My toilet stack is 6 inch cast iron IIRC, it's big anyhow (not that I think 6 inches is big or anything)

Switched to a different tie in, all new abs, sink still backs up? Use plunger and my son runs upstairs to tell me about a leak



The back pressure blew by kitchen sink basket pipe apart. Plundering on second floor caused this in first. I installed it in 2004. Corroded right through.

Oops, I meant most sink drainpipes, toilets usually have a much larger drain pipe.

Glad to hear you only need to replace some, not all... older houses can be a nightmare for plumbing and electrical.

“But Lord,” asked Gabriel, “Is this not too generous to these Canadians?”

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”
