In response to Re: Basement toilet splashes when 2nd story toilet flushes
: Please help! My house is a colonial with 1 bath upstairs and a toilet in the basement. When the upstairs toilet is flushed, air pressure backs up into the drain for the basement toilet, causing water to splash out of the bowl. I've had the house's main drain line snaked a couple of times in the last two years and replaced the basement toilet. Still have the same problem. Does anyone have an idea about what might be causing this?

Jason, A has pretty well described the problem. You have a blockage in the vent possibly caused by a stoppage in the main sewer line. Clean the sewer line to the street and if you can find a plumber with a camers have him camera the line to show you the problem. No guess work that way. But start by cleaning the main drain.Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
