Different Causes for Bad Odors in Your Plumbing

There is no doubt that when you detect a foul odor from your plumbing, you will want to fix it immediately. We can help. The source of bad smells from plumbing range from problems with plumbing traps, drains, vents and even the sewer line. Here are some of the most common sources of unusual odors:

  • Clogged pipes. Debris can catch and collect in plumbing pipes and then deteriorate, causing bad odors.
  • Bad P-trap. The curved section of drain pipe under your sink may be allowing sewer gas to rise up the into the pipes and into your sink.
  • Closed drain vents. Plumbing venting pipes may be blocked by debris, pushing sewer gas through the pipes and into your home. 
  • Problem sewer pipes. If more than one drain smells bad, the problem may be caused by something bigger—the sewer line to the main municipal sewer line may be broken or partially blocked.
