If anyone could give some advise..please? Live in a co-op and having an issue with our toilet backing up. It starts off making gurgling sounds when neighbor upstairs flushes his toilet then all this water comes spewing up..just great..we call to tell management. They send the plumber...Plumber snakes the pipe...2 weeks not even ...later gurgling noises again and water spewing ...tell the plumber..comes back snakes it again...not quite 2 weeks and its making same noises etc..I contacted management...their girl in the office starts yelling at me (shareholder) that i the plumber was here twice already and I can't keep calling them to have plumber here to unclog my toilet! What??? Excuse me but first we can't just call the plumber unless it goes through management and the toilet getting clogged is not of my doing?? There is a problem clearly in the sewer pipes is my understanding if when the neighbor flushes my toilet gets backed up.
Management is trying to put the responsibility on me to pay to have this done?? I need to "maintain" my toilet. What?? If the toilet is 7 years old and the toilet isn't the problem its the plumbing.
How do go about getting them to get this resolved? The plumber has been working this property for 30 years and I honestly think he's been just milking this place. He never went upstairs to check neighbors toilet, never went under building to check pipes. My memory plumbers are all over the place checking to see whats going on..
