In response to Re: sewer smell in basement
: We have an unfinished basement that is plumbed to finish in future. There is a sewer smell that's pretty strong especially when it's very cold outside. Any suggestions why this happens and how to fix it. thanks Heather

Make sure any and all future drain pipes and vents are properly capped or plugged, you could have sewer gas escaping. Also, check the sewer line for any open clean-out fittings and pour water into any infrequently used plumbing fixtures, including floor drains.
Good Luck. e-plumber
