Your Main Drain

First things first, if your main drain floor drain in your basement has any water or sewage backing up, this is something that is an emergency. This means that there is a breach or a major block in the main waste pipe leading away from your house. This is one of those things that only gets worse and needs a plumber right away.

Overflowing Toilet

Another big one is a blocked or overflowing toilet. Though this one is okay to wait a day or so and not a dire emergency, you really should not let this one last a long time.
