If a blockage does occur, then having something to hand to deal with it may save you time, money and inconvenience. A medium-sized hand plunger should cope with most blocked sinks. You should also have a spanner of the correct size to remove the trap underneath the sink. A set of drain rods should be sufficient to clear most blocked private sewers. If a blocked private sewer cannot be cleared by your use of the drain rods, then you will probably need the services of a sewer cleansing specialist.

My toilet flushes, then the water in the bowl drains over 4-5 minutes resulting in sewer gas smells.

Look inside the tank under the lid, it sounds like the flapper that lets the water into the bowl is getting hung up on something when you flush. It could be the flushing lever. This would cause the flapper to stay open letting water to just pour into the open sewer line. It should be a simple fix. Just see what is binding the flapper & make an adjustment.

Toilet not filling fully and smell of sewer

This is usually caused by a partial blockage inside the toilet. Try using a plunger to clear it, if that doesn't work, get a toilet auger from your local home improvement store

Have you checked the outlet pipe that the machines pipe discharges into ? Sometimes these get filled up with sludge etc and may siphon back in smelly water at the end of a cycle. You could also see where the pipe drains into the sewer system , see if there is a local blockage.

Replaced the drain hose and now during washing water tends to back up while draning out the sewer pipe.

New hose end may be aimed into drain pipe side causing water to gush back and not straight down drain. Some hose holders are difficult to align. If old hose was restricted and new one is not, the volume of the washer pump can back up a restricted drain. Clear blockage or reduce hose output and live with it. Washer pump out time should be adequate.
