How I solved the 'bathroom odors' in my basement.

15 years ago

I hope this can help someone else. I was going crazy tring to figure this one out. Aside from the problem with people coughing in my basement, on a separate thread, I was noticing bathroom ordor in an other part of the basement. I won't list all the other avenues I looked into, I'll just tell you what I finally found. coinsidently, a contractor opened the wall to reroute my kitchen exhauste and we discovered that a pipe for sewer gasses was not conected in the wall on the upper level. This is two floors above the basement. We noticed no odors in the upper levels. The odor traveled through the wall cavities, and it was open to the basement, and that's where it came out.
