- Drainage problems


Dear Shell,

When the toilet is flushed air comes out of the bathtub and shower drainage, leaving a constant bad smell in the bathroom. What can I do to solve this problem?

Thanks, Nasir

Dear Nasir,

Your toilet trap and connecting tee Y where the tub enters the main sanitary sewer drain requires cleaning. This is normally done by removing the toilet and cleaning with a sewer pipe drain snake or from up on the roof down the vent stack to the clogged area. Sometimes it is best to leave this to a professional drain service i.e.: Mc Rae's Sewer drainage see my web site referral network (www.shellbusey.com/mcraes)

It's just that easy.
