sewer smell in basement
My sump pit is giving off a sewer smell. I live in the chicago area and my sump pump has been running for the past week. The ground is frozen but my pit keeps filling up and now it's giving off a sewer smell. Any ideas?
Re: sewer smell in basement
Consider having the water department out to test the water to see if it has sewage in it as a busted pipe may be the cause. Does you pit have this much water in the winter? Is the pitpump outlet pipe open. Some times they can freeze shut an water stagnates....
