Question flush toilet and shower fills up.

i have a detatched "mother inlaw suit" the shower started to hold water. later when i tried to flush the toilet the shower filled up more. the sewr plant across the street from me had a pump burn out a few days ago and all the drains and toilets in the both buildings stoped draining. the pump has been fixed. but the back toilet still not draing. i snaked the line with 25' snake. no blockage from the toilet. i put my shop vac on the the shower drain to suck out excess water. sucked up a piece of concrete. about 1.5' in diameter and 3 inches long. could this have been sucked from the plat 150ft. away? is there anything else i can do to try to clear the line so i can use the back shower and toilet?

Welcome to the forums.

You have a clogged main line. A 25' hand snake isn't going to be enough. You'll need AT LEAST a 50' power snake to clear the line.
