    Hello
    We have a very bad sewerage smell coming from a newly installed ensuite - shower, sink and toilet. There is an AAV in the system which has been boxed in and tiled. The shower is a low profile drain design and the trap is full of water. There are 4 other bathrooms in the house (with roof vents) that do not smell. The smell is bad and we can't use the room. Any ideas would be welcomed? Thanks.

    Smoke bomb from the nearest manhole. Replace the manhole lid ASAP and run inside for a look/sniff.

    Thanks. Where do you buy smoke bombs from?

    I get mine from Travis Perkins but all builders merchants should do them. Avoid the matches, get the pellets.
