some floor drains have traps in them that trap water and stops sewer gases from escaping...however I found that my floor drain actually had a float ball as well, this float had ruptured and instead of floating, sank and allowed gas to escape. I do know the only way to get the smell is that there is no trap, trap leaks, or maybe my problem...went through a few plumbers before one finally repaired it.
