So last night its like 100 degrees and I notice this odor - like the creeping stench of death come to claim me. After checking to make sure I had a pulse I start trying to track it down.
Garbage cans - nope.
Toilets - nope.
Same for fridge, garbage disposal, underwear, etc.
Then i remembered a couple days ago i had mopped the floor and I was thinking maybe the sponge on the mop had gone bad. Checked it out and yeah it smelled a little wettish but not like the horror that was assaulting my nostrils. Started pulling stuff out of closets. looking for some form of dead hooker or small rodent
Finally I open the doors to the closet where the washer and drier would be if I owned one.
It was like the drain line was venting from the very bowels of hell.
The damn thing must have gone dry and opened up a direct pipeline to Lucifer's asshole. Fortunately I had a full bottle of bleach so I dumped that down it. I swear a heard a scream and there was a little puff of brimstone but this morning everything smells springtime fresh.
I have tow plans here - one, of course I am going to refill the pipe - that is one of the reasons for u-bends in drain lines is to trap water and block sewer odors. two - nerf ball soaked in fabreze in the pipe opening to help mitigate in case things go south again.
