Thanks for all of your help thus far. We will call a plumber to auger the main line first.

Some questions about basement floor drains for my understanding...

- What is the purpose of having basement floor drains if they can potentially back up and flood the basement?

- Do basement floor drains have traps, or are they straight pipes to the main sewer line? The floor drain the City was trying to snake was practically full - you could see and smell the murky liquid splashing all over the place.

- Can they be used to auger the main line like a clean-out?
