I have a clogged toilet. When I plunge it the stuff starts coming up in the tub and sink in the bathroom. Any suggestions?

This happened to me once. The house had city sewer service and tree roots had plugged the main line to the sewer pipe under the street. Roto Rooter was needed to clear the roots.


When it backs up into the tub or shower that means the wastewater can't get to the sewer.

My DH is a retired plumber. Looks like you're going to need a mid- or large-sized eel or snake, and someone who knows how to use it. There's obviously something keeping the water from reaching the correct outlet, and that's going to take someone on-site with some plumbing know-how.

If that is happening, then your pipes are not right. The toilet has its own separate line leading to the sewer sysytem. You'll need to get a professional to check out the pipes in your home.
