In response to Re: Sewer Gas Smell
: 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?

Have you figured out the problem? We live in Chicago
and have a similar situation. We bought
our house in September and started noticing the smell
in November.
