    Default bathtub vent

    I am in a 3 year old house and all plumbing worked fine when I took possession. Recently (last 4 months or so) the master bath tub makes a gulping noise as if it's not properly vented when draining. We also notice that when the master bath shower is used (separate from tub) there is a banging noise coming from the drain. All the other baths and drains work fine. Is it possible to get a air lock in the drains? Anyone have any ideas of the cause and possible remedies? Thanks

    The installer might have used Studor vents for your master bath. I've had all types of problems with them and if possible try to have a plumber run a vent from master bath group to outside.
