Question about Bathtubs & Whirlpools
I have recently noticed a horrible odor emanating from our bathtub inour basement. I plugged the drain to stop the smell, but I realizethat's only a temporary solution. I can still smell the odor in thebathroom, but not as heavily. Someone mentioned that the pipe on the roof that ventsall the gases from my bathrooms could be clogged. Another Internet searchsuggested that my fixtures may not be sealed, and they could be leakinggas. Help, please!!
What about a dry trap ? has the tub been used in a while, if not run water in the sink,tub and flush the toilit

It's been my expirience 99 times out of 100 that you'll find the culprit is a bad toilet to floor seal, better known as a bowl wax. Some handimen can do this replacement but I strongly recomend a pro. It is certainly better than the alternative. If you're unlucky to be that 1% and the bowl wax dosen't work then your problem is a cracked or brocken pipe somewhere.
