    Hi Gabe,

    We have a 2" pipe and it seems to be filled with water all the way, although I have to look kind of far down to see it.

    As of right now we only have that initial layer of concrete...

    Thanks everyone for your replies. What is weird is that when the old concrete was removed the smell went away. We had to wait an entire week for a new drain part to be delivered (it was an odd...
  3. Can mold grow inside a drain pipe in a shower?

    Every six months I use a snake to get out the giant hairballs that accumulate from my wife's long hair and it smells nasty. But I just had the concrete sub-floor in my stand-in shower replaced...

    Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions to this post. I hired a tile guy to rip up the floor of the shower and the concrete sub-flooring was just crumbling and filled with mold. He removed...
  5. How important is it to have insulation inside walls around a shower?

    I had to have my stand-up shower floor ripped up because the concrete sub-flooring had disintegrated and was covered in mold causing a horrible smell.

    When my tiler removed the concrete floor and...

    Hi Kingsotall, by "plumbed" do you mean did a plumber take a look at it? Or was it ever snaked? Sorry, I'm a neophyte.

    Or that it's a p-trap as opposed to a different type of trap? If that's...
  7. Update to mysterious smell

    Hi Everyone,

    So I've been keeping wet paper towels over our shower drain, which temporarily stops the sewer smell, until I could have the tile ripped up and a plumber take a look at what the...

    Thanks to you and jadnashua. Looks like we're gonna pull up some tile!
  9. Can a water trap be replaced without tearing up the entire tile floor?

    I have a sewer smell coming from my upstairs (3rd floor) shower drain. The bathroom shower on the other side of the wall has no smell. The vent stack is not obstructed on the roof.

    I had a tile...

    Okay, I might have figured out what the problem is, but I'm not sure.

    I removed the shower drain cover and noticed that one of the screws had cracked the PVC pipe, or whatever it is that it's...

    Great questions. A couple of follow-ups.

    1. If hair broke the seal of the shower trap, how do I diagnose that this is what happened and how do I fix it? Have a plumber tear up my shower tile and...
  12. And if the smell is coming from ABOVE the water...

    And if the smell is coming from ABOVE the water level, does that mean I have a clog somewhere that I don't know about? Would draino cure that? What's the cause/cure if it's coming from above the...

    I'm not sure how to tell if there is water in the trap. Any advice?

    Thanks!

    Quick update on my situation: I put a wet towel over the drain in my stand-up shower and the smell went away. I'm now fairly certain that the smell is coming from the shower, but as opposed to there...

    You know, T Finan, that might be it! I notice that when I take a shower water pools up in one corner of the shower and doesn't seem to drain that easily towards the middle where the drain is. I...

    Well, I went to inspect my work and saw that one of the bolts attaching the toilet to the floor had come out of the slot in the flange so that when I tightened it, the bolt came up so high the...

    I'm not ignoring anyone's advice. I may have misunderstood the suggestion about anchoring the flange to the sub floor. But I will say that I tried to see if there was any movement with the flange...

    Gotcha. Thanks for your thoughtful reply. I may need a professional.
  19. What I meant by me retrieving the old funnel from...

    What I meant by me retrieving the old funnel from my trash was that the new funnel, which I know is part of the new wax ring, seems smaller. The old one seemed to fit snugly into the closet flange...
  20. Thanks Kingsotall and Cass. Fortunately the...

    Thanks Kingsotall and Cass. Fortunately the floor is solid as a rock. I pushed down all around the flange and their was no give whatsoever.

    While the flange was dirty as all hell it didn't...
  21. The toilet seemed to sit two inches off the floor...

    The toilet seemed to sit two inches off the floor when I set it down. Then I sat on it and squished it into place.

    I wonder if it was sitting up because of the black sleeve and that caused it to...

    Thanks Terry. I removed all water from both the tank and the bowl and I thoroughly scrubbed the bottom of the toilet. The bottom of the tank was actually pretty clean.

    I will say that the water...
  23. Finding correct wax seal for 70-year old bathroom. Smell won't go away!

    I have a 71-year-old house, although I believe the toilet in our upstairs bathroom has been replaced at some point. A few weeks ago I noticed a smell in the bathroom. The toilet was not loose and...
