    I posted a post about the smell in my bathroom. Now i got the sewer gas smell in my basement and sent a snake down my vent pipe and it is clear what other things could be causing this?

    Eric, a dirty sludgy trap can cause smell. As for the basement smell I would make sure all traps have water in them. If unused for long periods the water can evaporate allowing sewer gases to escape. It wouldn't hurt to run fresh water down each trap. Only other thing might be a broken vent pipe somewhere in the house. You should have at least one main vent stack and probably have some smaller vent pipes near sinks that might run right up to the roof or might join a main stack in the attic. Good luck. Murray
