Basement Sink Overflowing


Whenever we run our kitchen sink on the main floor of our house, the water runs up from the drain in our basement bathroom sink. There is a toilet in there, as well as a laundry sink close by that we have no issues with. However, there is a basement drain in the laundry room that doesn't drain very well either. The drain is situated about halfway between the bathroom and laundry sinks. A while ago, I snaked from the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink, and the floor drain with an auger and drill with no luck, but I intend to try that again whenever I get my snake back from my brother. Any other ideas or thoughts? Thanks a lot.

Normally, a floor drain shouldn't be connected, to the sewer line. After participating, in this forum, I've seen that sometimes it does. As an alternative to a snake, I have used a wet vac, to suck out whatever might be clogging the pipe.
