comment What could be causing drainage issues in our new bathroom?
That just means it took a couple flushes before the rag got caught up, and/or enough "stuff" built up to clog the drain.

comment What could be causing drainage issues in our new bathroom?
When you (or whoever did the work) were working on the bathroom, did you (they) happen to plug any of the drains with a rag or something to prevent sewer gases from escaping? If so, it's possible that you (they) forgot to remove it. A plumber should be able to snake the drain, and clear the blockage.

In that case, I think this image more accurately describes your situation.

comment trying to wire a light fixture in a 1923 house with knob and tube wiring
It's strange to have two "hots". Even stranger in a light box that's switched. How many wires total are in the box?

comment Three-way switch problem, potentially faulty
There seems to be a problem with your diagram. At the end near the light, you have two white wires. One attached to common, and one carrying through from the first switch.

Are the two "hots" connected when the voltage tester lights up, or is everything disconnected?

Some photos might be helpful. How are you determining the wires are "hot"? How was the old fixture wired?

comment All toilets in my house flush slowly, afraid that there is a clog in the main line
You could pay much more, and get your own thing to shove down the tube, or to fix the tube (and clean up all the junk that comes out of the tube).

Are any other fixtures draining slowly?

Call a plumber, they'll be able to snake the line. Unless you happen to know somebody with an industrial sized auger, in which case you can have them snake the line for you. It's much cheaper to have a plumber snake the line, then to fix a burst pipe.
