Sewer Gas Smell Issues

June 21st, 2010 · No Comments · by

Sewer gas issues typically stem from floor drain traps that have dried up and give off fumes. The simplest solution for this is to get a bucket of water and steadily pour it down the drain to keep the trap seal full. Try to check the water level every few weeks or so, and if you see a substantial decrease over a short period of time, there may be an issue with the drain itself and a potentially cracked or broken floor drain. The best plan is to locate the break in the pipe or pipes and stop the sewer gas in the house. Sewer gas leaks can be quickly discovered by a licensed Toronto plumber, like those that work for DrainWorks.

 The heath risks of sewer gas can be very serious if you inhale it for an extended period of time. Don’t delay, give us a call! For more tips, join us on Facebook and submit your plumbing or drain question.
