Normally due to positive and negative air pressure mixing while the water is coming out, it means your almost vapor locked, and sounds as though the drain is not properly trapped. You should have at least 1/2 of fall per foot or run on the drain and it should be trapped with a p-trap or running trap to prevent it from a vapor lock, and to keep the air outside from mixing with you conditioned air inside by entering though the drain.

    you might not have enough return air creating negative pressure inside air handler...if this has recently occured it could be a very dirty filter also...also if you have a floor register single return air register, make sure it isnt blocked

Gurgling water noise


I would think that it is the ac evaporator unit and condensate in the ac box that is unable to get out the drain pipe from a blockage . It could be ice melting off the ac unit fins . check that the ac is operating properly

Sewer smell in house since installing the new toliet and the toliet gurgles when the washing machine is on. It started with the new toliet now the gurgling and smell is also present in another bathroom.


It sounds like a vent problem.
On top of each house is a vent stack.
There should be a vent stack above each toilet, and above kitchen sink.
Look for pipes sticking out of roof.
These pipes are open to the sewer line.
When you run a column of water down a drain, the vent stack lets air flow in front of and behind the column of water.
This air flow prevents the gurgling sound.
The gurgling sound is the drain water pushing air in front of it because of a clogged vent.
If you have a two story house, there are vents that run between floors to prevent the air flow from gurgling or bubbling sewer air into each drain as water column moves down pipe.

Look for bird nest over vent pipe on top of house.
Run a snake down into pipe from roof and see if the is a stoppage.
You many need to call plumber to track down each vent and the cause.
For example if there are quick-vents installed inside a wall and the quick vent is no longer working.

Lately after using basement shower, the toilet will gurgle and the water will drain. Also floor drain nearby will gurgle. What's up with that?


You have a blockage in you main drain for that area and will have clear it using a pipe snake,which is the quick fix but can cost about 100 bucks or you can try a drain cleaning chemical which may or may not work. you have to be careful with chemicals for many reasons such as they are poison, and smelly. the hard ware store may have a snake you can rent. hope this helps.

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.

I have started hearing a gurgling sound in my diswasher air vent when I run water in my sink. Why has this begun happening? I have an /estate dishwasher Model TUD7000Y-0


Sounds like your waste water drains could be backing up and pushing water back into the dishwasher.
Firstly try pouring Mr Muscle sink and plughole un-blocker down the sink and leave overnight next morning pour boiling water down the sink and your pipes should be squeaky clean. Hopefully this will improve the flow and prevent gurgling!
