Why Does My Home Smell Like Raw Sewage After A Heavy Rain? – Nashville, TN

There could be several reasons why your house smells like sewage when it rains. Oftentimes, when it rains, our plumbing system isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Usually, we worry about damage to our cars or roof, but rain can also affect other things like plumbing systems. Here are some common reasons why your house smells like sewage when it rains. 

Faulty P-Trap

When the P-Trap breaks or has a malfunction it can often lead to a sewage odor. The P-Trap is there as a very important component in keeping the sewage smell out of your home. If the P-Trap breaks then it can not stop the odors from coming into your home and cause the overwhelming smell. 

Floor Drains

Floor drains are mostly installed in commercial properties but can also be found in homes. If the P-Trap is not installed properly, breaks, or has a malfunction then this could lead to the sewage smell. If you feel like you are having this issue then call our team Jack Ward & Sons Plumbing Co. at 615-227-2811 for 24/7 plumbing help! 

Age of the house

The age of a home is very important because piping can become old and break very easily. If this happens then this could lead to the sewage smell in your home. 

Wax Ring

At the base of your toilet is a wax ring that helps keep a seal between the drain pipe and the toilet. When this seal is broken, it can lead to a leaky toilet which causes the sewage odor.
