Re: Gurgling sound from washing machine drain pipe

Well our neighbors 2 doors down are having the same problems with their septic backing up so that has to be on the cities side.
Did find out yesterday they were doing some repairs on the main septic lines.
Have to confirm more on our problems.

Re: Gurgling sound from washing machine drain pipe

Not a vacuum but a vent. Kind of like having your finger over the end of a straw, if no air can get in no water can get out. Hot water won't melt a frozen sewer. The only thing that works is a torpedo heater aimed down the length of the sewer or getting the underside of the home above freezing for ...

No need to now DaleM!
Furnace is working fine right after I get up on the roof & move the black plastic away from the flue pipe.
Thanks! :wink:

The front bath room toylette drain has been leaking for a long time untill I shut the water off at it a while back & don't use the front bathroom for now till I fix the opening under the toylette. Some one on here a long while back told me an opening in the drains can cause it not...

Re: Gurgling sound from washing machine drain pipe

Drain water will flow out of the system at it's lowest point. Normally when a sewer is frozen, when the toilet is flushed things back up into the bath tub. That is the lowest open point in the drainage system of the home. Anything that goes down the sinks also backs up into the bathtub, again becau...

Re: Gurgling sound from washing machine drain pipe

You may have a point DaleM! This morning it was running overflowing out the front bathroom toylette Badly. Confusing since at the front of the sewage & not way down towards the washer & kitchen sink. The washer was draining when it did it. Gosh I wish I could get rid of this old 1988 trlr. Wife was ...

Re: Gurgling sound from washing machine drain pipe

God Bless and sending prayers and I hope you get to feeling better soon. Chemo is very hard on a person, had several family members go through it. It only took the plumber about 15 minutes to snake my drain and he had an industrial size snake. Once he did that I have not had a problem since. He is ...

Re: Snapit elec box replacement idea

Do yourself a favor and replace them with standard boxes & switches/receptacles. My opinion is that the snap type should be banned, All it takes is one bad connection creating an arc to get a fire started. Why risk it? Greg Thanks Greg, :wink: but I am replacing it with the standard type. They are ...
