hello, please help.....from time to time when we flush our toilet it just fills the bowl without going down, this also happens our bath tub drain after a shower it is very slow to drain, but if you let it sit 30 min to an hour it will drain on its own( toilet and tub) and then flush fine for the next few times we flush the toilet, we also noticed a bubbleing sound coming from the tolit bowl once in a while like air bubbles gurggling, also when the toilet wont go down we use a plunger, the standing water in our tub will react with each plunge??? we live in northern michigan im wondering if maye its the vent stack somehow maybe do to snow or does this sound like blockage? it only does this in the winter months any help would be great our sinks dish washer and washing machine all drain fine and dont back up
Can I install peel and stick stone look vinyl tiles to my flat surface bath tub acrylic surround? The surround is old and ugly. The foor turned out so great! I would love to continue the look to the wall behind the tub to mimic real stone but I am wondering if they will come off or if I will have mildew problems or is this just considered something you shouldn't do. I want a more luxury look of marble but can't do the cost.
The tile I have, you can do with or without grout. I don't want to do something that would later cause a problem or hurt the resale of my house. Can anyone advise?
