In response to Re: sewer smell
: I had my septic system cleaned out and new plastic tile put in after that I started noticing a terrible smell coming from the bathroom I had the plumber out and he said it was the water in the trap in my sink drying out from the heat causes the gas to come up--I have never had this problem until I had the system cleaned and pipes replaced--I do not know what to do--should I call a different plumber--change my pipes under my sink??? I need advice please help me email me at if you have some idea what I should do---thank you

It would take a long time of non-use for the trap to dry out unfortunately without seeing what the plumber did it is hard to assess. You might want to get a second opinion
