STRANGE ODOR FROM DRAINS - NEED HELP!!
Hi - I need some help figuring out a strange odor from all of our drains in our house. We moved into the house 2 months ago and have noticed the smell ever since moving in. The smell is like a rubber/onion/body odor smell....... All 4 toilets have this smell and when I turn on any sink, shower or bathtub, the drains smell. It's not the water, but each drain - I think, and each toilet...... It doesn't matter if it's hot or cold water when I'm running the water. The washing machine has the same smell.
We did some remodeling and had all 4 toilets changed.
I have been reading quite a bit on this topic. I found a similar problem with someone else on your blog - "heidi" but her problem was a sewer smell - mine is not that, but a onion, rubbery, plastic smell. Do you think the plumbers could have done something incorrectly when installing the toilets, and thus the smell is going to each drain? I have no idea what to do....... thanks so much!
