Strange loud slurping noise

SAG1April 28, 2002

For a half hour after I use the shower, a strange loud slurping noise comes from the pipes. It keeps getting louder and louder, then stops, then starts up again for about another hour.

I have a question, are you on a septic or city sewer system? I would also add that you should post this query on the Plumbing forum.

You waste pipe might not be vented. That causes a slurping or gurgling noise as the water does down the pipes. Common in older houses.
