Hi, I’m Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I’ll show you how I solve problems. Let’s make things better together.
Closed up the drain so that when the trap dries out the smell doesn’t come up through from the septic tank, which you have to think about all those things. But you don’t want that sewer smell coming up out of a drive trap. You’ll sometimes smell it in convenience stores. You know, it got a weird, bad smell and sometimes grocery stores.
I’ve had to tell them, Hey, you guys need to go get the floor drains, pour water in those floor drains, because if they’re not used and you don’t get water in the trap dries out in the sewer, smell comes up through that floor drain. And that’s what that is. A floor drain and we’ve sealed it.
This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we’ll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we’re not Amera-Can’ts, we’re Americans. See you next time.
