You could try......

In reply to Basement Smell From Floor "P" Trap (??) by Bruce Brimacombe on October 30th, 2002 01:44 PM [Go to top of thread]

adding water to fill the trap and then gradually add about 1/4 cup of cooking oil. The oil should float on top of the water and prevent it from evaporating.
If that doesnt work, I would call a plumber to make sure the trap has the right cover on it.
Good Luck!
