My question is about the odor that rises when we run water in our bath sink. After a minute or 2 the odor is gone. When I had a plumber here installing a new bathtub I learned that the same smell was in the other pipes too. Pipes were disconnected so I took the opportunity to rinse out the "gook" from that pipe. Plumber said it is an accumulation of drain products that have been used. So, short of pulling out the bath sink pipes, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can remove that product from the pipes?
We had a similar issue in a tub drain that was draining slow. When we remodeled the bathroom below it, I had them remove the old tub drain pipes on the main floor and put in plastic (in place of the old galvanized). They showed me a cross section of that pipe. It really STUNK...and the opening in the center of the pipe was about the size of a pencil diameter! The rest was just occluded with gunk that was not cleaned out for about 40 years. After that the tub drained fine and no more odd smells when the tap was turned on.
