It is a vent pipe. It will be the one on the roof, closest to the problem. Sometimes, squirrels will drop nuts in it and stop it up. If that is the case, you may need a plumber. It could be partially blocked. You should have a trap on the shower but if there is not enough air for it to vent, it could cause what you're saying. If you don't want a plumber, you can figure out where the vent connects to the pipe, cut in the wall or cabinet, and check it there by cutting into it. Most plumbers have a cleanout that will clean this pipe out though. Hope this helps.

Toilet burps when tub drains


More than likely the shower drain is not vented to air.

My toto neorest 500 "burps" when I flush but the water does not go down


The problem may be in the venting of the toilet. If the vent for the toilet is plugged or in the northern climates frosted shut the air in the toilet drain has nowhere to go when displaced by the flushing water so it backs up through the toilet and causes the "burping" you mentioned. Hope this helps.

Sewage backs into the shower when the toilet is flushed


Obviously the drain line from your toilet to main drain out of the house ( used by upstairs ) has a blockage from your toilet line to "Y" in to main drain line. Depending on how it has been plumbed, there may be a clean-out between the 2 that can be used to remove the blockage. Your drain for shower is piped in to same line as toilet, thus when blocked at other end, overflows to shower. You can try some drain cleaner down shower drain if it will go. You might get lucky and release the blockage before plumber shows up .

I have a saniflo and the shower doesnt drain straight away and when u flush the toilet it bubbles up the shower !


This sounds like a HOUSE plumbing issue. Is the line porperly vented? Bubbling sounds like the line needs venting. If you cannot go through the roof, they now make local vents that work.

Toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times or more to flush solids. i at first thought this was related to heavy rains we had been receiving in the area over a period of about 4 months. 2 days...


there is no air release. the vent must be clogged somewhere. you can take a hose up there and see if it drains all the way or floods over. since the tub drain has a trap and the toilet itself is a trap, there has to bee a good amount of air pressure coming up without a release. i would say an obstruction. possibly at the junction of the main and the vent.

Sounds like a restriction in the outlet pipe, the 2 galls from a flush are OK but the bath or shower is more, especiallly if you have flushed before you shower, try drain unblocking chemicals or flushing the outlet pipe with mains water from a hose
