Foul smell from soil pipe?

Postby abaminog » Tue Mar 30, 2010 5:26 pm

I live in a 3-storey house with 4 bathrooms. Recently I started noticing a quite unpleasant smell in the bathrooms on the 1st and 2nd floors. It seems to be coming from the toilet but, as we do keep our toilets and bathrooms very clean, the only likely source of that smell must be the soil pipe behind. Is it a signal to me that I need smth checked/cleaned/flushed? How do I deal with this? Is it likely to be a big problem requiring a complete overhaul of the piping, or can it be done quite economically? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
