|In response to Re: Waste Line Replaced But Problems Persist|
If you're comfortable on rooftops and it's safe enough, I'd take a bright flashlight to the roof to look down your vents. You may not see anything worthwhile, but it's always worth a try. Just DO NOT drop the flashlight into the stack. You might also eventually try pouring water through from the roof stack while someone else looks/listens inside. NOTE: this may make your problem worse if something is indeed lodged. If your problem mostly occurs when it rains, I wonder if you have an improperly sloped vent "arm" somewhere, trapping water, and thus not allowing the vents to work properly.
: Thanks for your help. One more piece of information: The problem is at its worst when it rains. And sure enough it hadn't rained hard here until this weekend when I first noticed the problem again.
: I am going to check if there is a vent on the roof. I know, I should know this already but I don't.
: I really don't know if there is a problem with the drainage lines in the house....Do you mean the line between the washer and the toilet? By the way, this is a very small house - 900 square feet.
: Also, I had the option of having the line video recorded before it was replaced but didn't do it. They used a camera to look from the cleanout to the street but didn't video it.
: Thanks again.
: : It doesn't quite make sense to me that it worked fine for 2-3 weeks after the new line was put in, but is now bck to the original problem. If you did not fix the problem, it should have persisted, not gotten better for a few weeks and then returned.
