It’s never fun to have a shower coming into your house other then through your bathtub shower head. The force of that water coming through the pipe was stronger then what comes through your shower head.
be careful and be on top of as much plumbing as you can in your home. Some things you can’t help but old neglected drains and pipes is something you should consider addressing before it’s too late.
