In response to Re: Odor from sink pipe
: We have a strong odor coming up from our sink pipe. Hard to place what it is. Tried pouring vinegar, baking soda and liquid plumber down the drain. No help. Any suggestions?

DO NOT USE CHEMICAL DRAIN CLEANERS!!!!!! Even if you had a clog I would tell you not to use chemical drin cleaners. They are dangerous and do not work. IMHO they should be illegal and not sold at all.
Is this a bathroom or a kitchen sink? Hair and soap scum can accumulate in bathroom sink overflows. Food particles can cause problems in kitchen sink drains. Make sure that you have water in your trap and that it is not getting siphoned out somehow.
