I live on the lower floor of a condo building. From time to time soap suds flow out of a toilet and a sink. My upstairs neighbors all disclaim using any washing machines when this is happening. What could cause this?

Certain localities have very poor plumbing designs and have no idea what a suds pressure zone is.

As the suds rise from the piping on the lower floors it starts coming up in sinks tubs and causes drainage problems as the soap scum (film) starts to reduce the internal diameter of the piping.

Best solution find out what appliance they hooked up causing so much suds and also have the building management have the waste lines water jetted to restore full flow
