Sewer drain backed up.
What a weekend I had.....Did 2 loads of laundry Saturday morning. Went back into laundry room later that afternoon and noticed sootish looking stuff around the drain in the floor. Looked in the drain and it was completely full. Tried Drano gel 2x, rinsing out with hot water each time. I thought that may have done the trick, so I restarted washing machine (full of wet clothes), went up stairs, and came back down to find laundry floor flooded. (up and into my new laminate floor in the family room). So.....had to get a plumber at 5:30 Saturday night. (So glad my friend's husband is a plumber!) He had to snake it. Unfortunately, we have no idea where the main drain trap is. Will have to investigate.
