      How long is the pipe from the top of the shower flange to the top of the water in the p-trap? If more than a foot or close to a foot you might be getting a smell from the soap and shampoo you are using , what happens is this stuff builds up on the inside of the pipe and starts to rot (or smell very bad the thing to do is try to shorten the pipe or pour about a cup of bleach down the drain once a week this will eventually get rid of the smell but if you stop pouring the bleach down the smell will come back. The same thing happens in the lav. overflow drain a nasty smell comes out of the drain because of all the toothpaste, natural body oils, shaving cream, and other things put down the drain.: the shower smells like a super cause of bad breath.Ive changed the p-trape ran a new vent. had the water tested it was not the water.please help with what to do next
