Major appliances like your water heater work behind the scenes providing the services you expect that go unnoticed until a problem arises. When a plumbing problem does occur, such as a disruption in hot water supply, a leaky pipe, or an appliance water leak, you suddenly realize you need the help of a professional plumber.

If the plumbing in your Sauk Rapids home stinks, quite literally it could be a sign of a larger plumbing problem. Following is a list of three common plumbing problems that could be stinking up the rooms in your home.

  • P-trap: P-traps are the curved piping beneath the sinks. By their oddly-shaped design, p-traps prevent sewer gases from seeping into your home. Sinks that aren’t used frequently may allow gases into your home because there isn’t any water in the p-trap. Simply run the water for a minute so that the traps fill up.
  • Biofilm buildup: Odors emitting from the shower are generally signs of biofilm buildup, such as from soap and shampoo, hair, and body oils. This problem may often be solved with a home remedy of hot water, vinegar, and baking soda. Run a few gallons of hot water down the drain followed by a cup of white vinegar and a cup of baking soda. Let it sit for a few hours, and rinse with a few more gallons of hot water.
  • Sewer line: A breach in your sewer line will certainly cause odors. Signs of a sewer line breach are gurgling sounds from your toilets, sewage odors from the drains, and pest problems. A sewer line problem requires the expertise of your professional plumber.


Your Sauk Rapids home’s sump pump is an essential tool to help prevent flooding and water damage. It’s smart and can pay to check it a few times a year and to include it in your regular plumbing maintenance.

Use the following steps to check to make sure your sump pump is working:

  • Cut Power: Unplug both plugs to your sump pump. One plug is for the float switch and the second plug is for the motor. Reinsert the plug for the motor. If the sump pump doesn’t power on immediately, you need to call your plumbing professional to repair or replace the sump pump.
  • Running water: Fill the sump pit until the float switch activates the sump pump. If the sump pump doesn’t turn on, you may have a bad float switch.
