Sewage backup in basement from laundry
 
Our basement has water backing up from the sewage line every time we do laundry. We had a plumber clean out the line 3 months ago. They went through the house and not the larger outdoor opening. I had someone out today who cleaned out through the outdoor opening. There was a lot of root growth.

We did 3 loads of laundry tonight and the basement is flooded with sewage backup. I don't know what else we can do. Any suggestions?

do you have a septic tank or are you on a sewer system? If you had roots in the system , you also have broken pipes. If you are on septic system it may be at the end of its life. How old is the house.

Ashley, did you have the guy use a sewer camera on your sewer line. Nealtw is right, you may have broken pipes. You need to use the camera to see what you are dealing with. I used to live in Illinois, been to mackinaw a few times. Nice town. Good luck.
