Do you ever wonder why toilet bubbles seem to come out of nowhere?
There are two main reasons for this phenomenon.
Firstly, there is a small amount of air trapped inside the water pipe.
This air gets released into the bowl when the water level rises.
Secondly, the pressure of the water pushes the air out through the overflow hole.
In this blog post, I will explain you how to stop toilet bubbles coming out of nowhere.
Why Toilet burps big bubble when flushed
Toilets flush using pressurized water from the tank. This pressurized water is usually around 120 psi 7 bar. It is this pressure that pushes the waste down into the sewer system. However, if the toilet is not working correctly, the pressure could drop below 100 psi 5 bar and the water level in the bowl will decrease. In this case, the water level will fall below the trap door and air will enter the bowl causing the toilet to ‘burp’.
If the toilet is not working properly, the pressure inside the tank will drop below 100 psi 5bar and the water level in bowl will decrease. In such cases, the water level will go below the trap door and the air will enter the bowl resulting in the toilet to ‘Burp’.
The Toilet Drain
Toilets have two main parts – the bowl and the tank. The bowl is where we flush our waste down while the tank holds the water supply. The tank is connected to the bowl via a pipe called the drainpipe. When the toilet is flushed, the water from the tank flows into the bowl via the drainpipe. The water level in the bowl is controlled by a float ball mechanism. This float ball mechanism is attached to the top of the tank and moves up and down depending on how much water is stored in the tank. As soon as the water level reaches the top of the float ball, the float ball drops down and opens the overflow hole located near the bottom of the tank. Once the water overflows out of the overflow hole, it drains down into the sewer line.
A sewer drain is a pipe that connects the toilet to the sewage system. It usually runs under the ground and empties directly into the septic tank. A sewer drain is installed during construction of a new house or remodeling of an existing house. The sewer drain is connected to the septic tank using a pipe called the vent pipe. The vent pipe is usually buried underground and extends from the sewer drain to the septic tank. The vent pipe allows air to enter the septic tank. This prevents the buildup of gases in the septic tank.
