Toilet Gurgles when shower drains
Posted by John on November 22, 1999 at 21:10:46:
My house is four years old. Six months after it was built, a second septic system was installed because the original was inadequate. I have used this newer system exclusively since then. The newer system has a pump which pumps sewage uphill to the second drainfield. Until recently, it has functioned without any sign of trouble. Recently, our toilets have begun to gurgle occasionally for less than a second at a time. The water level in the bowl does not seem to rise when this happens. It happens sometimes when taking a shower. Is this a cause for concern? Do I need to have my septic tank pumped out?
