In response to Re: smell from shower drain
Was a P-Trap installed? If so the only way you will get the smell is if the trap is dry.

: : 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.
