 Gurgling sound in the guest bathroom sink
Author: Reen-M (TX)

When I turn on my heater, and I noticed that my bathroom sink started gurgling. It is not clogged and the water is going down fast.

This was the recommendation made by the builder because I was told that the ac system drain is connected to the sink drains and the sink in their homes tends to make noise and might have bacteria or debris inside that causes the noise:

"You can go up to attic and pur some bleach in your pea trap. First make sure AC is off. Below is a picture of the pea trap. remove tape or red lid if there is one and pour bleach down it. I hope this help. I will now be closing your case"

Does that make sense?

What should I do?

Sound like air pressure from the blower, make sure the drain line is vented
