Clogged and vomiting drainage

Can anyone explain to me what is happening to our sewage? Is there a problem with plumbing or something?

This is the situation: The drainage of our first floor bathroom is clogged. We cannot have a bath there without flooding the floor. We decided to use the second floor bathroom for bathing and doing out "thing". One day, the drainage on the first floor made a popping sound and suddenly "vomits" feces out. This became a regular thing. We tried doing our thing on the first floor, and bathing on the second floor. The "vomiting" stops. It became a rule in the house. Call of nature #2 should be on the 1st floor. When one of my family forgot the rule. It happens again! Really gross! Our local plumber cannot explain it either. How can we remedy that?

Yeah you are in need of some drain cleaning action. Roots or some sort of build-up or maybe even a breakage is your problem. And i agree w/ the above post about call another plumber. Just like anything else, there's all kinds of us. Good and Not-so-good .

Ok..... In short... Your main is broken or clogged

Long version

Imagine your plumbing drains are a tree. At the top you have the branches which are your upper bathrooms and kitchen the trigs are each individual part of that room and the trunk is you main line.

So if you have a broken twig it will not affect the branch so all the other twigs on that branch will still work... So a clogged sink will not stop a toilet from working

A broke branch will kill all the twigs on that branch but will not kill the tree... So a blockage in the line for the bathroom before the main line will block all the sinks, toilet and tub for that room but will not affect the kitchen

NOW a broken trunk will kill the entire tree... So if your main line is broken or blocked it will clog up the entire house. Basically what happens is as the trunk fills up it will fill up the twigs and then the branches till it finds a way out.

Get a plumber and have it snaked
