Found an over flow in our bathroom. When we checked the shower. There,me were small particles on the floor of the shower. Now there is sewage smell coming from the shower drain.


The smell might be sewage or just stagnated build up of a mix of things . try to use a plunger to make sure your shower drain is not blocked in any way , to use a plunger correctly you will need to block the drain hole and fill the shower with hot water and remove what you have covered the drain with and start plunging while the water is running down the drain , this gives maximum effect while using your plunger , some material may want to expel out the top of the drain while other material will be forced down and along the waste pipe after you have done this pour a large cup or two full of liquid bleach down the shower drain and see if this clears the problem ,because most sewer systems are independent from the waste water of sinks, showers and washing machines. Also when you flush the toilet try adding a bucket of water at the same time as you press the flusher , this will force more water than usual down your toilet helping to keep the pipes fully open , but if you notice that when you flush and add the bucket into the bowl at the same time that the water does not escape freely and seems to back up , this can be a sign that there may be blockages in the sewer pipes and you might try doing this extra water flush a few ,more time hoping you will clear your pipes adding some Landry washing powder to the bucket can have a effect on moving anything along and hot water is beneficial as well . But I think you will find that the shower drain is what is causing the odour pouring a mix of vinegar and baking soda down the drain as a regular maintenance job keeps them odour free and unblocked .

Rotten egg smell/sewage smell in restaurant


check for dead rodents in the ceiling. Have a plumber check for blocked /leaking drains especially around the dish washer drains . If you have had pest exterminators in lately then something may have taken the bait . IT will be best to get in professionals to remove the smell as quickly as possible as to customers a smelly restaurant is equal to bad hygiene and food poisoning.

Smell of sewer in the house


Ensure all your additional rough in plumbing is capped, and toilets or sinks that are not used for long periods of time , sometimes p traps may dry up allowing sewer gasses to enter the home so use them once in a while or fill with water once in a while ,same with floor drains. If that isn't it check that you have them installed.

My basement drains do not have water in them causing a very bad sewer smell. I have 2 drains near each other. Both have no water today but yesterday there was water in them. Could it be a clogged drain. We...


Hi, drains usually have curves in them to allow water to sit in them, this bit of water creates a barrier against sewage fumes (both disgusting and dangerous). This water can evaporate or leak out if the drain has a fault. Try pouring a jug of water into the drains to top up this water barrier to keep the fumes out, could take a few times a month.
Cheers!

SEWAGE SMELLING WATER COLLECTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DSHWASHER.


Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you’ll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Please note that dishwashers don’t drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn’t overheat.

Please post back for any further assistance.

you can open the filter drainage under near the drain hose. there may be something that comes into the washer drum and died leaving a smell. how to open the filter is rotated and pulled out only. then you try to drain the washing machine how to turn it. will allow water or sewage, which is in the drum filter out of the hole. and do not forget to clean the exhaust filter the water, there will be a lot of dirt.
