The Best Way to Avoid Costly Repairs is to Look For Signs of a Clogged Drain Or Sewer Line

Multiple Fixtures Are Clogged

The most common sign of a problem is when one or more drains or plumbing fixtures back up simultaneously. This typically includes the toilet, bathtub, or shower. 

The Spruce Explains The Unusual Reactions When Using Fixtures

Toilets: Toilets have the most direct path to the main drain and use the biggest drain pipes of all of the fixtures, so this is often where problems appear first. You may notice that a toilet doesn't flush properly, or that it gurgles when water is running down a sink, tub, or washing machine drain. This is a telltale sign of the main drain problem.

Tub and shower: Other drains typically affected by the mainline stoppage are those in the tub and shower. This is due to the fact that they sit at a lower level than sink drains. Check to see whether the tub and shower drains are blocked. Showers and tubs may also fill with wastewater when there's a significant backup.

Run the sink: Another strange reaction to look for is trapped air in the plumbing system. If you run water in a sink—especially a sink closest to the toilet—you may hear the toilet gurgle or see the water level in the toilet rises.    

Washing machine: An unexpected sign of a sewer drain clog can happen when you run the washing machine. If the water draining out of the washing machine causes the toilet to overflow or backs up into the tub or shower, it's a good sign the sewer drain is clogged. Note: This symptom can just be a washing machine and shower problem and not a sewer drain clog. If the toilets are still flushing fine while this occurs, the problem is likely due to a washing machine stoppage and not the main drain.
