    We have recently moved into an older home. The laundry is on the 2nd floor. Sometimes, when the washer machine spings, the first floor toilet (but not the second floor toilet) gurgles and bubbles.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    If you are using a hand snake, these are not very effective and do not deliver enough torque @ the end of the cable where it is needed to clear the obstruction. A rental yard will have a machine to perform the task, one with experience can unclog the drain.
