Over at my house and over at my grandparents house we are both having problems with sewage water backing up in the shower drain, bathtub drain and commodes.

If anyone else is having this problem or have had this problem recently, please let me know. I'm trying to figure out what is causing this. I have a feeling the sewage lines are freezing in the ground due to so many days and nights of cold weather.

And if that's the case it should correct itself when the weather gets warmer and everything thaws out right? Anyway, if you all have any feedback in regards to this let me know. Thanks.

We've had so much rain the ground is saturated and the water has no where to go. If your system were new the excess water in the ground wouldn't affect it but since your system is older, and probably mostly filled, there is no place for the water to go. Even with your system being older, if we were in the middle of summer and the ground was dry, your system would still work because the water would have a place to go. Yours won't work right until the ground dries some or it's cleaned out. Once you do get it working, the key is RID-X, RID-X, RID-X. Hope this helps.

Say, doesn't rid-x only work on septic tanks? At my place, we don't have septic tanks, just a line that runs to the city sewer.

Better not wait, the solids will keep accumulating and block the pipes totally, then the thawing process wont help, if thats the problem. May be your lines on your property or it may be a utility problem.
