    Angry Smelly sink drain

    My house is only one year old. There is a sewage smell coming from the drain everytime I turn the bathroom faucets on. It is not the water that smells. It is a blast of air that smells. I have taken the PVC pea traps out and replaced with metal traps. Plumber has been out several time and can't figure out why it is smelling. Vent pipe is open. I have run bleach through the drain and through the overflow. It is a marble counter top and sink. Basically I have tried everything with no success. I can only trust the plumber is giving me the right information. I am on city sewer pipes and not septic tank. Help Please

    Sounds like it might be the anode in your hot water tank, does it only happen when you turn on the hot water?

    You can seek the advice of your local hardware store if you’re not contented with what your plumber is telling you. Or you can try using a more powerful bleach brand and pour it on your sink drain at least once a day for several days to find out how it works.
