Is the water from the well going directly into the drain lines under my basement floor? I am sorry but I don't understand how the water coming into the house from my well is coming out of my floor drain.
How do I find the trap primer in my house?
While I was waiting for your reply I took the cover off the floor train and slowly turned the water back on and watched to see if the water was still coming back up and it did not. The pressure tank is now full and the water is not coming out of the floor drain now.
When this happened my daughter heard gurgling water in the basement toilet and the water in that toilet went down while all this was going on. That is how we noticed the water backing up. So, what are you thinking regarding the toilets? I have two sleeping grandkids in the basement right now so do not want to go raise to much hell down there. Why does this stuff happen on a holiday week-end? ;-)
the toilet upstairs did not drain water, only the basement toilet did. and when I just flushed it, it seems plugged but water did not come up the floor drain. The water only came up the floor drain when the pressure tank was being filled from the well.
