I have a weird problem. I have 1 shower drain in the house that smells
like sulfur. No other drains or hot water outlets in the house smell.
Just the one in my shower. It only smells after I have been running
the hot water for about 2-3 minutes. It doesn't smell during the day
or night, but just when the hot water has been recently used, and after
a couple minutes at that. I have tried drano, bleach, and other
cleaners but have no luck.
Any ideas? I appreciate all the help.
You could be getting sewer gas coming back through the pipe. You could
try and trace the buildings vent pipes and check that that drain line
has a proper vent, and that vent is not plugged.
I used to get the same behavior is one shower in a home I used to own.
IMO you might have have hair. skin, soap, dirt buildup in the local
drain; trying a plunging the drain
Try this product (also available from ZEP) should be at HD, Ace or
just about any home improvemnt / hardware store. The stuff really
works; I use it a couple of times per year. One container will easily
last more than a year.
