smell coming from bath

Postby fen » Mon Aug 20, 2007 3:18 pm

I,ve had a new bathroom suite fitted and noticed a smell coming from the bath every time i have a shower, after removing the bath panel i saw that the waste pipes are going slightly upwards. Is there any way i can fix this problem without making another hole to the drain outside because the exit for the waste is higher than the bath waste hole. I never had this trouble with the old bath and it was going out the same way.
Any help would be appreciated

Simply Build It

Get the plumber back. The bath needs to be raised or the pipe dropped, there are no other choices unless you want to install a pump (see our project on basement into utility room) to pump the water out.
