All of the drains in my house have been flowing slowly since I bought the place 5 years ago, it recently became worse. This is more evident when a lot of water is dumped, such as when flushing more than one toilet at once, taking a shower or running the washing machine. The toilets would gurgle and the bathtub would often backwash from the drain and fill the tub with sopay water from the washer.
This was frustrating, but it turns out the rooftop drain vent was clogged. Maybe a squirrel went down in there, or the excessive pine needles that always fall on my roof fell into there clogging up the vent.
A simple garden hose filling water from the rooftop vent was enough to push the clog through and allow the drains to perform normally again! This won’t necessarily work for everyone, but give it a try and be careful!
MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING BEFORE ATTMEPTING THIS!
If you flood your home or fall off the roof and land on your pet duck I AM ABSOLUTELY NOT RESPONSIBLE!
