Sump Pump


Anyone out there ever have your toilet gurgle everytime the sump
pump runs. This just started happening yesterday. My opinion is there is air backed up. Is there a way to burp the system?

Ayuh,... I'd sooner think the Vent is plugged or frozen/ plugged at the roof...

A sump pump should not even be connected to the sewer line.
In some countys it's againt the law to do that.

Sump Pump


Is the toilet located in the basement? If so, is it possible that it is the sewage pump kicking on and not the sump pump?
