    wife just came to me saying downstairs toilet was plugged. Way too much water for just toilet. Any recommendations for a plumbing company on a Sunday? Ffs

    Confirm it’s just the toilet. Run water in the basin and see if it comes up in the bowl. If so, you have a drainage blockage.

    If it’s just the toilet and if you have another toilet, let it go until the morning. You will pay double for a 10 minute service call.

    Main line plug somewhere between house and Main Street line. Had snake out 70’ from basement toilet and couldn’t clear it. Hydro blast tomorrow . The main lines were replaced on the street 3 or 4 years ago , front yard is 42’ long (curb to foundation following lines) so he was well off my property with 70’ of snake out.......

    Last plumber I hired was a rando off Kijiji doing evening/ weekend work on the side.
    He was top notch and saved me a few bucks, super dude.
