Hi Folks - house is 6months old and has 3 bathrooms.

Upstairs Loos are fine, no problems.

No backing up in any other areas within the house.

Problem is the downstairs loo, only recently, has developed a slow drain in so much that when it's flushed the bowl will fill up to just below the rim and then drain away slowly. Which obviously fails to clear 100% of the waste etc.

I suspect a partially blocked pipe but just wondered what everyone else reckons?

This problem has only developed within the past few days but I had noticed that last weekend a flush up stairs in the ensuite - directly above - created a nice big bubbling in the loo below?

Look forward to your thoughts.

Regards

If its anything like mine was you will need a diving suit and an aqualung.
The smell was horrendous. I'm sure that the pros must have their sense of smell removed..

I knew I'd been working in drainage for too long when I could eat my lunch whilst looking down a manhole (or should that be inspection chamber :LOL: )

Are there any chambers you can lift to have a peek and see how far down it might be blocked. If it's new build I'd also get it officially noted now in case it turns out to be a defect in the pipe which has caused it.
