Stinky Drain Solution

Stinky drains and pipes? What is the cause?

A stinky drain can be very annoying. A small drain can make an entire floor stink. It may be that the drain only smells after a rainstorm or sometimes even continuously. You might smell the familiar rotten egg smell or another sewerage odour. This smell is not only unhealthy, it is also very annoying. Fortunately, there is often something that can be done about it. 

What causes a smelly drain?

A smelly drain is usually caused by the presence of a layer of microorganisms (biofilm) in the pipe after the drain. These micro-organisms break down the dirt particles in the water stream. They do this in a way that does not use oxygen. We call this anaerobic degradation. During this decomposition a number of decomposition products are released. Depending on the circumstances, this could be H2S (hydrogen sulfide) gas, which causes the rotten egg smell in sewers. In almost 90% of all cases, this H2S gas causes a smelly drain. It can be smelled in very low concentrations. Organic nitrogen and methane gas can also cause smelly sewage.

Fortunately, this annoying problem can indeed be solved. A good working product for this problem is Drainpure. Drainpure lays a layer over the microorganisms in the pipework.
