Moved into a new rented apartment.
There was one porcelain washbasin in
a strange position, so we decided that we
won't use it at all. But every 2 days, it's
starts smelling - So I have to run water
on it & clean the basin with some strong
soap till the smell goes aways. And it
again starts smelling again.
Again have any idea as to what can be
the problem & how to fix it.
Two thoughts. One is that there's no trap on this basin. If you
know how to look, make sure there's a "gooseneck" looking thingy on the
Secondly, I've rarely found in the past that something foul smelling
can be hiding underneath the sink basket, lodged in the vertical
tailpiece. Maybe you can look with a flashlight to see if there's
something there. If there is, the tailpiece can be disconnected and
