everytime I flush the toilet, water from the basin squits up at least a foot
from the drain in the basin sink. the toilet and basin sink are new and
installed about six months ago but this problem just happened. I have a vessel
sink, and I don"t know if this has anything todo with it or not. please help, I
have to keep my sink drain covered with a towel to keep mywalls dry. thank you.
A partial blockage in the sewer line might cause this situation. Depending
on the layout of the plumbing, the sudden influx of water from the toilet
can cause an air bubble to radiate backwards from the partial blockage and
force water up and out of a nearby trap.
I've had roots in my sewer line that caused a partial blockage. When the
2nd floor toilet was flushed, the basement toilet (the closest trap to the
outgoing sewer pipe) would gurgle and spit water. It was not a pleasant
experience to be sitting on the toilet when this occurred.
As soon as the sewer pipe was snaked, the gurgling and spitting stopped.
