(Which is located in the basement.) If someone takes a hot shower in the upstairs shower. Or during periods of heavy rain.I have checked the roof vents and they appear to be clear.Thank you,John Lammers.

      : I recently purchased a 23 year old home with a septice system. I have noticed a strong sewer smell in my basement under the following circumstances: If I use my washing machine. (Which is located in the basement.) If someone takes a hot shower in the upstairs shower. Or during periods of heavy rain.: I have checked the roof vents and they appear to be clear.: Thank you,: John Lammers.If its during rain as well sounds like the trenches are clogged, best to get a plumber in to check it outDISCLAIMERAll advice is given with-out seeing the job, and hence all advice MUST be taken as advice with limited knowledge on the exact situation. NO responsibility can or will be taken. And yes, I am a licensed plumber with my own business in Brisbane Australia
