ghostmaker, unfortunately I cannot tell you that information, as I am not a plumber or contractor. All I can tell you is that the house is considered a single story, with a bonus room upstairs and was built in June 2006. The bonus room gives the impression that it is a two story, but it is not. There is just a large attic and a single room upstairs with no plumbing. Two bathrooms, one on each end of the house.

bubbling and gurgling is common with clogs in a system useaully the first signs of a problem, if the problem comes and go's you may want to get a compitant plumber with a camera to check it out, we had one last WC's started gurguling then a clog, home was built in 2009 his plumber told him that he needed to check this out install a bigger main line out side to the city at a cost of 7900.00 we went out and found a huge belly in his line just before the line exited the house. if you keep having the problem get a camera in the line.

I thought you were on city. Septic could be something more serious with the septic system. .

If you fill up the lav sinks and dump them how fast do they drain... Do the same for your tub if you have one.

If they drain slow and your plumber used whats called a wet vent system you may need to get that drain snaked...

When was the last time your septic tank(s) were inspected and pumped?

Septic tank was inspected and pumped last summer. As for it being a wet vent not sure. I am trying to get a hold of my builder, but in the meantime, I found only one vent pipe coming up through the roof. I would have thought there would be at least two, but maybe one should do the trick. I am going to try and flush the vent tube this weekend and maybe run a snake down to be double sure. Ill let you all know how that goes. Thanks for all the advise/suggestions so far.

Ok, here is the latest. I checked the vent for any obvious obstructions, nothing. Just for the heck of it, I blew down into the pipe just to see what would happened and I could hear water. So, I ran the water hose down as far as I could and flushed for a 5 mins or so, but I don't think that was enough to get the job done. I think my next option is to run a snake and see what happens. BTW, I had my son go to one toilet and we flushed them both at the same time and we were able to get the bubbling action. I am thinking it may be a combination of both vent & drain line. More to come.

Do any other fixtures like a lavatory or bathtub or shower drain slow? Check by dumbing them filled. If so snake that drain to open up your wet vent.

Thanks ghostmaker. I am going to try that next week, after I verify what a scooter valve is. I was told by one contractor, that since my house only has one vent pipe thru the roof, I may have a scooter valve. Has anyone heard of this and if so, where do I find it. The guy I talked with said it would more than like be under one of my sinks, possibly. No luck finding such a critter.

I think I may have finally found my problem. It was discovered that I have two vents inside my house, one under my sink in the kitchen and one under my master bath sink. My master bath is on the opposite ends of the house, so that would possibly make the kitchen sink vent closer. A friend found them and we removed the one from the kitchen and flushed the spare bath toilet and it did not bubble. Replaced the vent and flushed again, it bubbled. We tried this several time to see if it may have been an accident, but each time we had the same results. I am going to Lowes/Home Depot to see if they see these. Is it common for them to go out? When the vent was removed, it sounded like a marble or some type of object in it that rattled. We will soon see if this is the main problem. Thanks.

Yep it is common for an AAV to fail. That is why Ohio has sort of made them expensive to use.
