Help Please Plumming Problems

I have a tub that is stop up and we went in the back of the tub and found out that it is stopped up some where between the tub and the sink. Neither sink or the toilet is stop so we think it is between the tub and the sink. When we run water in the tub it stop up immediately.

We tried to us a 25 feet snake but we couldn't get it through the T that in the P trap. We are in need of help please help.

Hard to assist without more info or pics. There should be no T in a P trap, I think you mean you are trying to go down through the sink. Look also for a clean-out behind the tub.

About 90% of the time that a tub is stopped up it is in the stopper assembly. I would suggest you watch this video http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/video/0,,20186457,00.html or the ones on the right side of this site
