Basement floor drain?

<< < (2/2)

BrntToast:
do NOT use drain cleaner if you have used bleach in the washer lately
certain drain cleaners mixed with chlorine bleach make chlorine gas (mustard gas)

The snake got the job done. No more backed up floor drain.  O0

Leonard707:
Most likely your drain has buildup in it and needs to have a snake ran down it. If you have recently bought a new washer like a front load or high Efficiency model they drain with a lot faster and sometimes you have to upsize your drain from 1 1/2" to 2"
