    Does the dirty toilet water that came up in the tub affect the rest of the house?
    I had to unclog my toilet, the dirty toilet water came up in the tub... Does this affect any of the other water in the house?

    No, the water supply is a separate system from the sewer system.

    I agree. If you have cleared the clog you're good to go.
