Fill Your Basement Drain Traps

August 13th, 2014 4:33 PM by Eileen Denhard


WHAT    

  Fill your basement floor drain traps.


WHEN    

  Twice a year.


WHY      

The traps below the sinks in your house get replenished every time you run the water, but in many homes the traps below the basement floor drains never get refilled.The water evaporates and sewer gases start wafting up from the drain.

 
 

HOW       

       Pour a half-bucket of water down the drains to refill the traps. If you add a few tablespoons of mineral oil on top of the water in the traps, it floats and won't evaporate. Therefore, the water below it can't evaporate.
