i just read about the woman with an apple in her toilet. we might have the same problem, or similar. both of our toilets are stopped up. we can get them to flush, but only using the plunger. we bought a snake, to no avail. and then today rented a professional 75 foot 1/2 inch sewer snake from home depot. after running all 75 feet of it through the upstairs toilet and then the downstairs one as well, we put the downstairs toilet back on it's base and it still isn't flushing properly. what are we doing wrong? we are "do-it-yourself'ers" and really don't want to have to call a plumber if we can get it done ourself. thank you. any help will be greatly appreciated.
