Sometimes your plumbing smells can ruin your day. We don’t mean your toilet doesn’t flush properly or your pipes are leaking. We are being literal. Sometimes your plumbing just smells nasty. It can sometimes smell pretty awful. Stinky plumbing problems arise for a variety of causes, some more evident than others. Regardless of the reason, no one should have to live with nose-wrinkling, stomach-churning plumbing odours in their house.

To help you avoid unpleasant plumbing odours, we’ve compiled a list of the four most prevalent causes and how to avoid and prevent them. Follow these techniques to keep your bathroom a refuge. If those technics don’t work then is time to call a plumber for help.

Broken sewage line

Several factors might cause damage to your sewage line. Clogs can accumulate until pressure causes the pipe to explode. Tree roots may grow through the line. Due to soil conditions, the line may sink and split. A busted sewer pipe is spilling sewage. Sewage smells. The stench of sewage flowing from your drains and outside your home might be the most obvious symptom of a sewer line rupture.

If you suspect a sewage line rupture, look for continually clogged toilets, gurgling drain sounds, and bug problems. Unfortunately, there are no simple, dependable DIY solutions for a sewage line burst, but you can call for professional help.

Clean your waste disposal.
Debris can be a problem and can build up on the inside of garbage disposal over time. The food debris that clings to the interior of your disposal might produce an unpleasant odour.
There are several ways to clean your waste disposal. Whatever method you use to clean your disposal, make sure you disconnect it first! After that, a little dish soap, water, and a sponge should suffice to clean it out. For more information, you will find some tips on another blog from Near Plumbers.

You have p-trap difficulties.

The p-trap is a “p” or “u”-shaped conduit located beneath your sinks, showers, and other plumbing fixtures. The p-trap keeps enough water to prevent harmful sewage gas and smells from entering and exiting your drain.

If you use your showers or toilets infrequently, the p-traps may dry out. Smelly sewer gases may rise through your pipes if there is insufficient water in the p-traps to prevent them. All you have to do to resolve the issue is cycle water through your rarely used fixtures.

You have a bacterial biofilm buildup.

The underside of the drain cover has hair and filth (biofilm) on it.

If your shower drain stinks, it might be due to biofilm buildup. Over time, waste from shower items such as oil, shampoo, soap, or lotions can accumulate and form a residue known as “biofilm.” When biofilm builds up in the drain, natural bacteria begin to cling to and feed on it. You’re smelling the biofilm bacteria.
Fortunately, biofilm treatment is simple. All you need to do is use a natural cleaning to eliminate the germs that have grown up. Pour five or ten gallons of hot (but not boiling) water down the drain. Next, add a cup of white vinegar and a half cup of baking soda. Allow it to sit.
