In response to Re: Toilet bubbles when washer drains
: When the washer drains, my toilet bubbles and bubbles loudly then drains. I can hear the kitchen sink and a small amount of water will come up into my tub. About 18 months ago I had the same problem, so I had the main line snaked and blasted with a high pressure truck. What could possibly be causing this. Could it be a main line clog or is it possible for the air vent to be blocked. When they snaked the line all they found was that black gooy sludge.

Reply:
It appears that the main drain line is partially restricted causing the problem. Why did they need to water jet the line last time? Usually a good cleaning with the right equipment does the job. It may be worth having the line camera inspected if the problem becomes persistent, you can request a tape copy for your records.
Good Luck. e-plumber
