Toilet bubbling


Whenever the tub gets drained, bubbles come out of the "stem" in the tank of toilet. Why is that?

Toilet bubbling


Sounds like you have a clog developing in your main drain line out of the house, possibly roots growing into the line or some sort of debris that has built up. If you are a DIY'r you can buy or rent a "snake" or auger and try to clean out the line from your "cleanout" opening. This clean out is usually located against or near the exterior foundation of your house. Otherwise call your friendly local reliable plumber.

The tub is slow to drain, i will try to unclog the tub and see if the bubbles go away.

Thanks for the help!

If your toilet bubbles when you drain the tub it is more than likely a main line partial stoppage. My suggestion if you have never run a sewer snake before call a plumber. Those snakes are very powerful and if you get it caught it can cause serious injury. It could also be a vent stoppage which means you might have to go on the roof to clear it depending on the design of your system. If you decide to do this yourself be very careful.
