Sewer smell
Posted by John Brooks on October 07, 2001 at 09:41:35:
We had started a fire in the first floor fireplace our first cool day, and after a while, walked up to the second floor and noticed a bad sewer like smell. I smelled each drain in the two upstairs bathrooms and couldn't determine a specific smell coming from the drains. I took and used the baking soda, vinegar, followed by hot water method to flush all the sinks and showers (which are all used daily). It seemed to help, but as soon as I ran water in the sink, I could smell it immediately. I checked the sink smell out the next morning (after the fireplace fire was out) and the smell could not be created again with running water. Any ideas what might be going on?
