      I’ve got a strange problem. We are having a bad odor eminate from only the bathtub drain and bathtub overflow.
      Backround; Our septic tank was backing up into the house, so we had it pumped out. Now there is the constant odor coming right out of the bathtub drain + overflow. It is very frustrating. We have repeatedly flushed and bleached the overflow and drain to no avail. If there is any insight that you could impart, it would be greatly appreciated.

      If I am losing the trap seal can I [joe blow handyman] fix it or do I need to call a plumber?
