Best Wifey!

A beautiful spring day and we came into the walkout basement after working in the yard and were hit by a sewage smell. I sprung into plumber mode pulling access panels and checking for leaks. After 10 or 15 minutes of tearing the house apart my wife walks over to check on progress and asks "when was the last time you ran water in the shower, is the trap dry?". Sure enough the shower had not been used for many months and the trap was dry. Ran some water and the smell is gone. I am such an idiot! Going for bigger stuff without checking the simple things first. And, my wifey is the best.

That can't be the end of the story. Where did you take her for dinner?

I know where you are coming from PD. I once tore an air compressor pump down because it would stop compressing air after about 40 psi .... only to find out the belt had loosened and was slipping
