Comment on Laundry Room Sewer Smell Solved – Plumbing Trap by Zach http://www.homeconstructionimprovement.com/laundry-room-sewer-smell-solved/#comment-1799904 Thu, 24 May 2018 04:39:35 +0000 http://www.homeconstructionimprovement.com/?p=6594#comment-1799904 Thanks for posting this! I have one minor quibble and that is about the “correct” picture. The picture features an S-trap which violates code AND allows water to be siphoned from the trap, allowing sewer gases to come up. If people are getting sewer gases and they have an S-trap, that may be the problem.

I’ve also since been told that in the past 5 years the code was changed to require a check valve on the water supply lines to prevent backflow. I wonder if any of the people here were having backflow issues.

I plan to use vinyl bead board for the ceiling of a 10 X 20 poarch. How should I allow for expansion and contraction when installing recessed lights and a ceiling fan in the ceiling? I’ve not read anywhere about this.

Thanks.
