There are many reasons your shower drain smells bad. You can fix some of them yourself. To fix others, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
You were getting in the shower last night after returning from an afternoon boat trip when you smelled something funny. You finally tracked the smell down to the shower drain.
There are several reasons shower drains become smelly, according to realsimple.com. Among those are dirty pipes, mold, soap scum, or a dry P-trap. A P-trap is “is a P-shaped pipe designed to prevent sewer gas from entering your home by trapping a little bit of water. To check, shine a flashlight down the drain. If you see water, your P-trap isn’t dry and it may be a good idea to call a plumber.”
The good news about many of those problems is that you might be able to take care of them yourself with some diligent cleaning.
But, there are other problems that call for expert help from a plumber.
“Understand that if you can’t get rid of shower drain smells on your own, the water doesn’t drain—or worse, is backing up, it could be an issue with your sewer or septic tank. This is likely not a DIY fix, so it’s best to hire professional help,” realsimple.com says.
