Gurgling Shower Drain When Flushing Nearby Toilet

Postby ms1983 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 10:26 am


My upstairs shower drain has recently developed a gurgling sound when the nearby toilet is flushed. I know this can be a blockage between toilet and drain, or vent problem. With it being a recent cold and wet spell the I assume likelihood is a blocked soil stack - however if this was the case would my other upstairs toilet/shower not be experiencing similar problems?

What is the best order of troubleshooting?

Should the toilet/shower have its own vent (separate from the main stack?)
