About 2 months ago I had a plumber out to remedy a rocking toilet. He pulled the toilet, noted the flange was 1 -2 inches low. He replaced the toilet and left saying he had to get approval for the repair. That night my shower wouldn't drain an the toilet was bubbling air while the shower was running. It has now been blocked for over 2 months.

The next plumber (different company) pulled the toilet and found the original guy had put 4, yes... FOUR wax rings between flange and toilet. It was obvious that wax had squeezed into the pipe and down the line.

I cleared the line with a snake once but it clogged again within 2 days. I can get wax on the snake head but I have no idea how much is in there or if I can ever clear it out completely. Chemicals? Heat? Etc?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Time for a drain camera and water jet to clean the drain.

The water jet machine will have enough pressure to remove the wax, and anything else in its way
