Re: Basement Smell!

Great suggestion John for the smoke test, i didn't know about that and may even wind up doing that on my own house even though i don't have any plumbing related "smell" issues.

In addition to the great comments posted here, if I were in your position I would check any P traps around the basement. Any sinks, or maybe where the washing machine empties into the drain line to make sure any drains have proper P traps, which hold water to prevent sewer gas from coming back into the house.
