You have a blockage in your main sewerline.

You have a problem with your venting system. This is why some codes now require a vent within 6" of the toilet. If you will add a vvent to your main line at the toilet you will stop this. Check to make sure your vents are not clogged by a bird or bees nest first.

The gurgling in your kitchen sink drain trap is because your drain system from you upstairs toilet is not vented properly. As the flow drops down the vertical drain pipe from the upstairs it sucks the water out of your kitchen sink drain trap and causes it to gurgle. It could drain the kitchen sink trap and allow sewer gas to flow into your kitchen. The fix is to either install an Air Admittance Valve (AAV) in your kitchen sink drain plumbing or properly vent the upstairs toilet drain.

Your drain line is plugged somewhere after your shower and toilet line are connected. The reason for the gurgle in your toilet is because air is trapped in the drain and your toilet is the closest place for air to flow to. If you had a vent on your toilet trap arm then it would gurgle in the vent rather in your toilet but your drain is still plugged and needs to be snaked out and maybe your drain line needs to be examined for right grade or broken.

What you probably need to do is snake out the vents. You probably have debris in them.1- you may have a slight blockage2- Poor venting and water Jetting will scour the piping rather then rodding

In the end, yes. ANS 2 - By "the toilet pipe" -I'm going to assume you mean the drain . -The toilet drain in a small house is generally the main drain. All other drains are connected to it.

First thing you should do is call a plumber. Drain lines are not supposed to leak. Your drain line is clogged and needs to be snaked out and the leaking pipe repaired.

You dont. A tub drain is too small for a toilet drain. You need to hire a professional to find a main line 3" or bigger to tie into for a toilet drain.

As water drains, it displaces air in the pipes. If the vent or vents in your house are clogged up, the air must find another way out, which could be another drain in your house.

No, a tub drain is too small for toilet plumbing. Toilet drains needs at least a 3" drain line and vented.

Usually toilet flange is glued down onto plastic drain pipe. There is a toilet flange that can be glued inside of plastic drain pipe also.

When a basin drains and causes gurgling sounds in other basins -- or the toilet, in this case -- it is usually a sign that a vent pipe is clogged or obstructed. The air being displaced in the drain pipe of the bathtub has nowhere to go if the vent is clogged and is being forced up through other drain pipes.

The toilet flange sits on the floor and connects the toilet to the drain. It should connect to both.

Yes, as long as drain line is sized properly for toilet. 3" drain line would be minimum pipe size for toilet drain line to tie into.

That often happens if they both drain into the same pipe. Main thing to watch is that you DON'T dump food scraps down the sink, or it may plug the pipe and then prevent the washer from draining.

If you are asking how far the drain is from the wall behind the toilet, it is 12 inches from the center of the drain to the wall behind the toilet.

On a standard toilet in America the drain is 12 inches from the back wall to the center of the drain.

There is something stuck in the drain.

Yes as long as the drain has a trap and is vented

A toilet will overflow when there is a blockage in the drain.

Yes. It is how the toilet is attached to the drain line.

The drain from the toilet to the main drain is plugged and the branch to the shower is not. If the main floor toilet flushes, it is between the two toilets and not between the house and the sewer.

The toilet itself is plugged or the pipe from the toilet to the drain is plugged. It may be that the tub and sink have their own drain pipe that may connect to the main away from the toilet drain. Plunge the toilet or sometimes if you fill a 5 gallon bucket with water and pour it into the toilet as fast as it will take it, that will flush out the line. It is a greater amount of water all at once an forces out what the clog is.

This can be a complicated job as the toilet drain ranges from 3" -4" and a variety of materials from Plastic to cast iron to galvanized. Then there is the venting to consider and NO a shower drain CANNOT be used for a toilet discharge as the shower drain is normally 2" diameter

One way to open a slow kitchen drain is by using a plunger on the drain. If the drain is still slow put some baking soda and vinegar in the drain to loosen any debris that remain in the drain.
