plumbing Tips & Tricks
A bathroom that smells like sewage means there is an issue with one of the drainage points in your bathroom.
Dirty or dry P traps are the most common cause of a sewer smell in your bathroom or toilet. If not used regularly, the water in the p trap can evaporate.
If you think your shower is suffering from that dreaded sewer smell and is not draining correctly, you probably have a clogged drain.
The toilet itself can be a source of sewer odors. Wear and tear over time and knocks against it can cause sewer gas leakage.
A bubbling or gurgling toilet is never a good sign. A range of problems can cause this and is best left to the professionals.
Drains can suffer the same fate as your shower drain. Though it’s less susceptible to stuff that comes off you in the shower, it can also get clogged.
