In response to Re: Annoying Toilet Flushing
: I recently replaced a toilet on my main floor (a basement is below). When I flush it, a pocket of air is released and blurps water about 2 inches up in the toilet (like a water cooler blurp). I figure air is getting into the pipe somwehere but can not identify the source (especially since there is no leaks from the base of the toilet or below the toilet). I used a wax ring with a horn/flange on the end. Its been about 3 weeks and I see no damage to the floor or ceiling below but want to stop the toilet from from blurping water up. Can you help?

Reply:
If the old toilet didn't "blurp", the new toilet may be defective or possibly the wax shifted slightly to partially block the opening at the closet flange although that should not cause a blurp.
Contact the manufacturer or the distributor, yours may not be the only complaint about this particular toilet malfunction.
Good Luck. e-plumber
