Using drain cleaner everywhere got rid of this for a month, but it is back in mild form.

Need to clean out u bends.

We checked u-bends where easily could (under shower/bath) and fine.

Definitely the main drain outside is partially blocked.

Actions: Try with more drain cleaner. And clean out by hand with rubber gloves (poo).

Cleaned out the drain by hand, no problem.

Now I suspect the bathroom plumbing - there is standing grey water in the long pipe from the bath after the u bend (spotted while doing #41). It's not given enough slope (S confirms). The sink is presumably the same.

Drain cleaner in the shower and sink in bathroom definitely fix this for a month or two. Needs new plumbing with pipes that eject water properly.

This seems to be generally less bad than it was.

As well as the bathroom, the piping in the kitchen isn't great either. So if it happens a lot, replacing that is fix.
