|In response to Re: Glug-glug sound in shower drain|
: Anyway, the only factor that's persisted is a "glug-glug" sound from the shower drain immediately after each shower. Until recently, the water drained at a reasonable speed, but after each shower, I'd hear a "glug-glug-glug" for the better part of a minute or two. A few days ago, the drainage speed dropped considerably, and we just had a plumber over to fix it. I haven't been home yet, but I gather that while the clog was fixed, the noise remains.
: The plumber suggested that one possible cause has something to do with the vent-pipe that exits through our rooftop, and fixing such a clog (if that is, in fact, the problem) might cost us about $450(US). My wife tells me there was another possible cause... She forgot the details, but I gather that fixing it would require completely ripping up the bathroom.
: Does anyone have any idea what can cause this, and whether a novice can do anything to fix it? Or even diagnose it?
