    If I could please get a quick explanation about what is going on with my toilet/tub I would really appreciate it.

    Toilet is clogged. Tried for a while to plunge it. It has resulted in nothing other than my bath tub now being backed up. Why is this happening?

    Hi and welcome,

    Perhaps the main soilstack is clogged and therefore nothing will drain but backing up. It's happening because there is a blockage which is caused perhaps due to too much use of toilet paper, woman waste,baby wipes or anything similar.

    As above reply says, - some part of your sewer pipe is totally blocked and it has backed up with water. Wipes are notorious for causing blockages.
    If you live on a ground floor/bungalow then it will back up sooner.
    It may just be a simple matter of needing some excess points on stack or the manholes opened and the underground sewer rodded by someone capable.
    Or ring a local company who clear sewer blockages and ask first their charges.

    You need a drain company to attend and clear the blockage and jet the drain run . kop
