Bad Odor In Bathroom May Need A Smoke Test .

Do you own a home and have a constant odor problem? If you have a bad smell in your home it can be caused by quite a few different plumbing scenarios. Its a good idea to go over the most common causes of bad odor and then if you still can’t confirm the source call an Apopka plumber for a smoke test. Hear are some of the most common plumbing problems that cause odor that you can check before you call a plumber we will start with the most common.

1. Dry p-trap if you have a particular bathroom or fixture you don’t use often the trap could have run dry causing sewer smell to enter your home. If you have a fixture or bathroom you don’t use often try running water in it for a few minutes to fill the p trap with water and see if the smell goes away.

2. Broken or rotten pipe/vent if you have an older home from the early 70’s and older you could have a broken or rotten drain line. The best way to test for this is have a plumber perform a smoke test to find the problem.

3. Bad wax seal on toilet if you have a bad wax seal on the toilet it can allow sewer gas to enter your home causing bad odor.

The best way to know if you have a problem with a leaking drain or bad plumbing vent is to have a plumber do a smoke test this is done by pumping a special smoke into the line, this will make any invisible odor visible and you will then know where your problem is.
