Re: My house stinks!
I had the same problem with our 86 year old house! I had a plumber out to give me quotes for replacing the hot and cold lines; they were cast iron and also to see why our toliet in the basement had a bad odor! Upon his insection, the basement toliet was vented to the drain; so....To say the least the City did not get me on this when I bought the house; but now I can legally say I have a 2 bathroom home, that is legal; after spending over 8 grand for new copper lines and replacing the cast iron drains with PVC. New problem I now have, since purchasing a new washing machine is that when the washer starts up we hear a shaking noise coming from the hot and cold lines, before we had the new washer no problem. Any ideas; water hammer? Confused!
