It’s no mystery why sewers are associated with foul odors. We see them in movies, TV shows, and we even read about them in books. While we like to think of sewer systems as completely separate from our homes, they’re really not. There are drains and other pipeline systems that lead directly into the sewer. Our home plumbing systems are like the veins that transport waste from our living spaces into sewer systems, so we need to start thinking about them as connected.
That being said, we get asked this question all the time. “Why doesn’t the sewer gas come up into my kitchen or bathroom?”
