Clogged drains are not uncommon. The solution for a clogged sink, toilet, and tub/shower is to snake the drain to clear the line. Although, in more rare occurrences you might encounter a main sewer stoppage in which all of your lower level drain lines clog simultaneously. Water always finds a way to exit your house at the lowest point. Therefore, when your lower drain lines clog simultaneously the sewer matter begins to enter your home through the drain pipes, it is time to get your main sewer line snaked, hydro-jetted, repaired, or replace. We highly recommend getting your line video camera inspected prior to getting extensive work performed on your sewer main line.
