Why do I smell sewer gas coming from the drain or toilet in my bathroom?

It usually occurs if the toilet hasn't been used in a while or the toilet or show in the next bathroom have just been used.

  • This happens to our downstairs bathroom all the time. The pipes are dry so the sewer fumes come up. Run the water for 10 minutes or so when this happens and it should dissipate.
