This is a duplex about 10 years old with a shower in a finnished basement. About once every 3 months tennent will notice a brown scum around shower drain which looks like drain has backed up but then goes down. No matter how much water I run down the drains I can't get it to repeat. I ran snake down bsmt. drain to road and I know it is clear. However there is a toilet 5ft. from shower drain and toilet always flushes with no problem. I ran all the water in the house at the same time and flushed the toilet but water in shower drain which is down about one ft. would not move up at all. Does it pay to pull toilet and snake that 5 ft. ? or is something else going on ? Thanks for any help.
