    Don't know for sure.
    It should not gurgle if the system is free flowing on the drain and vent side.
    It may indicate a slow or blocked drain downstream of th bath drain.

    Dan,

    If the drain water is swirling at the end of the end of the drain cycle thats a good thing.

    If it's bubbling at the end it's a bad thing. Sound or no sound.
