Vanity

I have a vanity that has two sinks. For some reason, and not all the time, when using the one on the left side, you can hear gurgling coming from the right sink. We do use the right sink, but probably not as much. We are also getting a very bad sewer type smell coming up from the right side as well. Any suggestions? E-mail Address:[email protected]

Re: Vanity

Any plumbing trap that is seldom used dries out as the water evaporates. A dry trap allows smelly gases to enter the living space.

Try just running water in that sink to fill the trap. Add some bleach too.

Happy New Year,

A missing or clogged vent can also cause this problem.
