: Hi Terry:

: I hope you can help. We just moved into this house, and there is a strong sewer smell in the upstairs shower stall. I picked up the metal cover ring and I could see standing water in there. I'm sure that's what smells. What do you think I can do? How come the water does not drain out?

The water doesn't drain all the way out because the trap retains water to prevent and seal sewer gas from coming out. It could smell for many reasons, ie the water may have been sitting there for awhile or it may be dirty and need to be cleaned etc...
