Bubbling Toilets

SamT1512October 21, 2011

We have lived in our newly constructed house since 2007. This year our toilets started bubbling when our clothes washer empties. Now the all toilets bubble when we flush another toilet. On advice of a plumber, we had the septic tank pumped. We didn't notice the bubbling for about a month. Now it has started again. Could the problem be a blocked vent stack? If not, does anyone have another suggestion?

I'd vote for plugged vent-stack.

Suspect your emptied septic tank acted as suitably-sized air-bladder until it filled again. With tank filled, there's no longer anywhere for your system to "breathe" except via the vents....which apparently are not doing what they're supposed to.

Could be wrong...but I doubt it.
