Clogged Basement Drain?
Water is coming up through your basement floor drain. What does that mean?
When water is coming up through your basement floor drain it could mean one of two things. You either have a clog in your 4” main sewer line between the house and the city main or there is a clog in the 2” drain inside the house (under the floor).
It can be confusing.
We’ve seen many homeowners attempt to clear the wrong line. The basement floor drain is the lowest drain in the house. A clogged sewer line will expose itself through water backing-up through the basement floor drain. Same for a laundry line/floor drain, it will also expose itself through water coming up through the basement floor drain. Again, it can be confusing.
Q. Ok, how do I determine which line is actually clogged? Is it my basement floor drain or is it my main sewer line?
A. Flush any toilet in the house. What happened? Did the water continue to rise, spread more? If so, It’s safe to say that your main sewer line is clogged. Are there tiny bits of toilet paper around the floor drain? That’s also a clue that it could be the main sewer line that’s clogged.
Q. It only happens when I do laundry.
A. It could still mean that you have a blockage in the main sewer line. You might only have a 90% blockage which means it will slowly drain but only “backup” when you run a large amount of water such as laundry or when you drain the bathtub.Read More...

A. That’s easy, call Discount Rooter and Plumbing.
