Sewer Gas Smell
Posted by John Hopper on October 10, 1998 at 15:09:50:
We have a nagging problem with a sewer gas smell in one corner of our basement. The problem only is apparent in the fall, winter, and spring (most noticable with temps below 35 deg.). we live in northern Indiana, have a well and septic tank. I have checked all drain areas for proper traps and seals around toilets as well as vent pipes for the septic system. We have a clean dry basement with poured floor and block walls. Why do we have the smell only in the colder months?
