In response to Re: smell from shower drain
: Reciently we installed a new shower in the new bathroom
: Now we are getting a sewer smell from the shower drain.
: We try to keep it covered when not in use. Any suggestions.

Either the trap has no water in it, which will happern if the
shower is unused for a time - or the vent is incorrectly installed
which will allow the water in the trap to siphon out, as a result
faulty vent.

pour some water in the drain (a quart or so), and if the smell goes
away that's the reason.
