the usual

In reply to mystery noxious smell coming from cellar by S Ainbinder on September 26th, 2000 08:54 PM [Go to top of thread]

I assume they checked the usual, empty traps from evaporation, temperature inversion causing vented gas to come down through a flue, or someone put a nail hole in a pipe during renovations. Have a plumber do a smoke test or have someone drop some peppermint oil in a gallon of water poured down the main roof vent and smell around inside for a leak. Keep the peppermint person outside until done.
