Q: I have really seen a rotten smell stemming from my washroom lately and can't find out the source. Do you have any concept what ΑΠΟΦΡΑΞΕΙΣ ΜΑΡΟΥΣΙ ΤΙΜΕΣ could be causing this sticking around smell and how I can eliminate it?

Normally, a percentage of water collects inside the P-trap, even when it's not in usage, catching sewer system gases that would otherwise sneak up through the drain opening. However if the water in the P-trap dribbles out and leaves the interior of the pipeline dry, those gases will leave and stay in the air.
When that occurs, it's most likely since the washers have really rusted and produced a little breach. If that applies, you ought to be able to change them and strengthen your handle caulk or plumbing technician's tape to make certain a fantastic seal.

If the vent pipelines are included, finding the source of the odor and fixing the problem is a job best delegated an expert.
