    I have heard of birds perching on the edge of the vent pipe to warm up in the winter, being overcome by the fumes, and, if you are really unlucky, falling into the vent.

    Burp

    You might try running a snake down the vent pipe on the roof to see if that is blocked.
    Better aim might help. :D

    I have that about once a year, it is usually a good sign for me to have our line snaked to get some roots out. If I ignore it, usually about 2 weeks later it will back up and I get water seeping up from the basement drain

    I do get a reoccuring root ball that has to be removed about every year or so.

    Oooooh... sounds like you might have a clog somewhere. My boss had that and it was happening at random times too. He paid a lot to get it fixed (including having to dig in his neighbor across the street's driveway and getting that fixed too). Hopefully, it's not that bad for you.

    No cats and the dog was in the kennel. Water all around the seat and floor.

    Have you actually seen it burp? We thought something similar was happening to our toilet because water was inexplicably appearing on the seat and the floor. Eventually we found out that the cat was sneaking into the bathroom when no one was around and splashing in the bowl. :zbangingHead:

    Glad we never called a plumber.

    started a topic Question: For a plummer

    For a plummer

    Every once in a while my toilet "burps". By burps I mean the water in the bowl has a large amount of air come through the pipes and splashes the seat and floor. It usually happens during the day while at work. I thought it had something to do with high winds and the vent tube causing some sort of pressure bubble, but it did it yesterday and the winds were moderate at best. Any ideas and/or remedys to keep this from occuring? Lucky for me it has not happened while in use.
Working...
