Every load of laundry makes the house stink. The clothes never smell afterwards which makes me think it isn't in the unit itself but we ran baking soda through it. May have to do a more concentrated load of baking soda....
We poured bleach down the P trap. We thought it is kinda exposed to the open but the open end of the P trap for the washer has no smell as well.
We're new to septic systems so I'm just wondering if I'm doing something wrong maybe? Smell seems faintly septic related but that's just a guess on my part.
The house sat unsold for a year so maybe it is the unit. We actually have a spare unit in the garage we could swap out...but lugging it down to the basement sounds like work!
