sewage gas in basement
Posted by Randy on June 18, 2003 at 22:15:34:
I've noticed a sewage gas smell in my basement (rental). I have a drain in the basement floor and a vent about 8 feet away in a corner of the basement. This vent sticks up out of the basement floor about 5 inches. It seems the gas is coming from this vent. Is it normal under any circumstances to have the vent inside the house? I always thought they should be outside... Is this something I should have the landlord look into fixing? He already had a plumber in to make sure the drain wasn't clogged.
