Plumbing Questions? Ask a Plumbing Expert.
Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.
The water you see is the water in the trap and it's normal what you describe. It sounds like you may have a broken plumbing vent pipe that's probably concealed in a wall. A plumber can do a smoke test to locate the break.
I'm sorry but I doubt you're a real plumber since you didn't know how fixture traps function. There is no "vent hole". It's a vent pipe I'm referring to. You need to know how plumbing systems work and are likely to be piped to find this. For that you need a real plumber.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today.
I am exactly not that! If you don't love me than it's not me, it's you!
I haven't quite gotten through reading it yet, but a quick question. If you look under the sink cabinet in that bathroom, is there studor vents on the piping? I still have some reading to do here. Should I read the other question too?
Oh boy. I don't know if I can help you if you're not a "real" plumber...... so let's forget about the idea of a broken vent pipe unless you have had a recent earthquake or just moved your house. A studor vent looks something like this click here
I see I started answering another one of your questions too, about the kitchen drain. I am going to see what else you got going on too. I know some stuff!
I surely am awesome and modest too! How about accepting my phone call offer on the other question and we will discuss the kitchen stuff and this smelly stuff.
Maybe you have to make the offer to me? The calls were only available between 1:27am-1:27:31 Standard Metric Time
So....how's the shopping trip going?
Sorry we did not get a chance to chat further today. I will be off working somewhere tomorrow so, I am not ignoring you when I do not reply right away. I will be online for hours in the evening. I am in the eastern time zone. Will you let me know about the studor vent? Also, will you do an experiment? Air out the bathroom and remove the smell, then run the shower for about 30 seconds then leave the room and close the door. Do not use anything else during the experiment. Return in an hour or so and check to see if the smell is there. If it is not then flush the toilet twice then leave the room again and close the door. Return in an hour and see if the smell has returned. The results of the experiment and whether you have a studor vent will tell us allot.
I was looking through your previous questions and there was one about faucets you were going to replace too. Did you replace those? If not, maybe that can be our next question.
That is a nice image....did you see the part about the experiment? Surely after burning one an experiment will be fun!
That sounds good. Thank you for sending me good karma. It is true. When bad things happen to me they are always the best possible outcome of a terrible thing if that makes sense. Last month I wounded my thumb quite badly. 30 stitches to get it back together but no arteries and I actually scratched the tendon but did not cut it. If either of those things happened I would have gotten surgeries to get it fixed but only required many stitches and a few weeks of discomfort. I have also been in quite a few terrible car accidents that no one was seriously hurt. Maybe when other people get good karma they get money and stuff. I just survive stuff and that is more than enough for me. I am guessing you have a subscription? If so, do you want to rate this question and then request me again in a few weeks when you get over to do the experiment? As far as the filter, there should already be a filter on the fridge. It also depends on the water quality in general. If you have well water or city water etc. You can get a water test kit at Lowes or Home Depot for about $30 that tells you what needs to be filtered out of the water. That is really what determines what type of filter is needed. It is really a good idea to test your water twice a year. Water quality can change quickly and not really be noticed.
I am not sure what message you got. I totally would feel like I was being cheated on if you started dealing with another plumbing expert! Except for Wade. He is cool.
You read my mind. I was typing all of that time while I guess you were too.
Well, I am glad you are a mind reader since I cannot really comment about one of those things. I am telepathetic so I will send the message in a mind message. Since you have now received my message you can see we agree on that subject. As far as the injuries, I was quite a wild young man (30 years ago) and put myself in situations that people with poor karma would not survive. I am also a person who sees nothing but silver linings. I could be homeless and living in a tent (ok I did live in a tent 20 something years ago) and would admire my tent and be so happy how nice of a tent I had and how lucky I am. Also those tatoos all have a story and I am glad to get to look at them and recall how they marked a moment in time. My worst one is a tramp stamp that looks like a mustache. I am so thankful that I did not get the eyeball on my neck like the chick that was with me! I am a Canad***** *****ving in North Carolina. I will check out the video later but surely no one can make life any better for me!
Ruh oh.....I don't wanna be toxinized.....
