sewer gas - vents in apartment
Posted by Laura on September 26, 19100 at 14:19:31:
My apartment does not vent sewer gas up to the roof. Instead, the landlord has used something at the end of the vent pipes called a Studer valve (I'm not sure if I've spelled this correctly). Even with this, I notice the smell of sewer gas in my laundry closet, where there is one of these vents near the ceiling - and particularly around the opening where the washing machine discharges water. What can I do about this? My landlord thinks the valve should do the trick - but obviously, it hasn't.
