  • floor drain old house

    ....have a floor drain in an old house. it has a plate on it and doesn't smell unless the plate is removed to drain something. it is a very old house and i don't think the line has a trap under the floor. is there a fitting/grate that could let water drain but prevent odors from coming out? i guess it would be a check valve or something similar. anyone? i believe it is a 4 inch diameter. any such animal that would solve the situation? outside of diggin' up the floor and putting in a trap?

    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

      just ask is it a complete floor drain tied into a sewer? I have seen a number in houses that were built in the 30's that just went to a dry well.

      I know it does not make a difference if it is smelling or not, but may be some thing to check into.
