: MY MOMS HOUSE HAS A SERIOUS NOTHING, I DO NOT KNOW ANY THING ABOUT PLUMBING SO LET ME START WITH MY STORY, MY MOM HAD A FLOOD FORMING IN HER BASEMENT , SHE HAS A BATHROOM DOWN THERE AS WELL. A FRIEND CAME OVER AND TOLD US THERE WAS A BUSTED PIPE, HE TOOK THE SHOWER WALL DOWN AND FIXED THE PIPE. TWO DAYS LATER WE HAD ANOTHER PROBLEM, WHEN THE TOILET WOULD GET FLUSHED FROM THE UPSTAIRS BATHROOM THE WASTE AND WATER WOULD COME UP THROUGH THE DRAIN IN THE WASH ROOM, WE HAD THE GUY WHO FIXED THE PIPES TELL US THAT IT APPEARS THE SUMP PUMP ISNT WORKING, CAN ANYONE CONFIRM THIS OR GIVE ME ANY ADVICE BEFORE I SPEND MORE MONEY AND FIX ONE PROBLEM BUT CREATE ANOTHER.
It sounds like your main sewer line is plugged up fill up your washing machine if it comes up in the floor drain more then likely it is your main sewer line that is plugged. Any plumber can open the line up. Good luck Jason
