We need help troubleshooting our plumbing problem before we spend any more money on this house. We just spent quite a bit of money finishing our basement, where we added two bedrooms and a new full bathroom with two sinks and a shower for our children. We have never had plumbing issues before. We have a septic system. The plumber had to jackhammer floor and change out pipes for this addition. Our upstairs has 2 full baths, but only the hall bath toilet is clogged. Sink drains fine. Then downstairs the toilet is also clogged. The sinks drain fine down there too,but the toilet gurgles when the water in sink is run and the pipe in shower drain has standing water in it! We have just our master bath toilet in working order! Any help and insight would be great. Ive looked up several things to try, but think this could be an issue caused by the new plumbing installed
Sounds like a clogged drain pipe or vent stack to me. Some toilet paper doesn't break down as well; such as charmin. I would switch to Scotts which breaks down rapidly.
