I'm having some sewage backup in the basement drain of my house. Can anyone suggest any remedies or am I'm looking at hiring a plumber to come in and snake the drain.

Thanks,
Julia

The solution depends on the nature of the problem.

When you say backup, do you mean that the basement drain fills with water when you flush a toilet? Alternately, do you mean that when you are not running any water, water from the city sewer actually backs up into the basement?

If you have the first problem, you probably have a clogged main drain, and you can try drain root eater before calling a plumber to roto-clear the drain.

If you have the second problem you will likely need a plumber, and a backhoe to asses where the problem is, and if its the water/sewer companies responsibility or yours.

There are some plumbers in the news paper that will not charge you unless they unclog the drain. They have charged me $80 to unclog drains in the past.
