The drains for the shower, toilet and sink all connect to a common line. Assuming the toilet is not backing up, the problem indicates that there may be a partial blockage, enough so that some of the toilet flow is backing up through the shower drain line.

You need Plumbing repair. The shower leak you mention should only be in the shower, or else you have a broken drain line as well.

Your toilet will gurgle and bubble when flushed due the flapper valve on your toilet, or small vent pipe and even because of a crack in the toilet. To overcome this plumbing issue try changing the toilet flapper, which does not cost much, and if the issue is a major one contact a professional plumber near at once.

once youve flushed the tolit on shrink ray island,you go back to the microscope and see if theres any more info from cj

One would hope the last person flushed when they were done or if not, you flushed before using that particular toilet. One would also assume that if there were feces on the seat you would not use it. Once flushed, the one or two possible viruses that might still be in the toilet bowl would be killed by the chlorine in the water. It takes very little to kill the virus outside of the body.

Once flushed there may be little that you can do. Obviously you need to find who flushed the tampon, it is common sense that tampons shouldn't be flushed down the tampons. In RV's or caravans this is an even bigger issue, the person may be embarrassed but they need to know not to flush tampons again. Also make sure there's a bin for them to use in the bathroom.

You don't. Once you flush it, return to the telescope for a second Morse Code message from CJ.

My g/f has this happen to her regularly and, it was only when I asked that she said she usually flushes once to get the flush working and then immediately after to make certain the toilet flushes everything away. She said that if a toilet has good pressure, it will often splash out when she flushes.

Increase your main line pipe size. When you have a small pipe installed, and while you showering the toilet is flushed it has to distribute the amount of water running in the pipes, resulting in the drop in pressure. Once you have increased the pipe size, you'll notice that the extra volume of water will accommodate for the extra water needed to fill the cystern while showering, therefore fixing the problem with a drop in pressure.

look for the leak once you find it you will know were the leak is have a great day =)

A leaking flapper is the most common reason. The toilet drains slowly down to the point where the fill float does its job to fill back up. The flapper is the plug at the bottom of the tank that, that leads to the bowl and should be changed at least once a year. You will save hundreds if not thousands of gallons a year.

If it is a new house, the plumbers hooked it up to the hot water supply--this actually happened to me once! Otherwise, it may be really hot outside and the water has been warmed before coming into the house.

Shower either once every day or every 2 days. if u cant shower at night do it in the morning. :)

Well obviously you have a leak somewhere. -If you can see water coming from any where near the back of the shower, that would be a help. If no leakage is visible, I would remove the wall panel at back of shower, to expose shower control and pipes. Once you see where the leak is, shut off main water. (most mobiles do not have a separate shut off for bath/shower.) -When you see the leak, call an experienced handyman or plumber to repair. Water leaks are very common in older mobiles with either copper or PolyB plumbing. I ALWAYS repair or replace with PEX. Usually I cut out the entire length of suspect pipe and replace it with PEXpipe and 2 'Sharkbite' couplings. Post again with the results please, or even if you need more advice.

Car transmissions should be flushed at least once every two years, that's what most car manufactures say and mechanics

I guess they shower every once in a while. like normal human beings do.

The manufacturer recommends flushing the radiator every 30,000 miles. The radiator should be flushed once every two years regardless of the miles.

That means that your toilet is clogged, or your toilet was clogged and you need to just flush once more.

Broken hose? Leak at radiator? Leak at water pump? Defective thermostat? Pressure test system to try to determine source of leak

answer the question.... once again answer the question

I had the same issue with my Cherokee Sport 4.0 until I had the heater core flushed. After a couple trips once flushed, high pitched sound discipated.

I will go once you leave it after cleaning it properly

On the thermostat side of shower remove handle by removing handle cap. Once handle is removed if there is a circlip then the thermostat pulls out otherwise will unscrew.
