sewer gas smell in bathroom
Posted by Franc Chisenhal on December 12, 2003 at 08:04:05:
I have a sewer gas smell in one of my bathrooms. I have had the vent system pressurized and tested and there are no leaks in my drainage system. However, when I flush the toilet, there is a gurgling sound from the bathtub and I believe the trap is being siphoned, causing the sewer gas smell to enter the bathroom as a result.

If this is the cause of the smells, what causes this siphoning and what can I do to fix it?
