As my flooded basement saga continues, we encountered some off smell yesterday. We are gutting the bathroom and as I moved to start removing dry wall from the wall next to the door, and as we cut the bottom part of it a sewer smell appeared. Behind that wall, is a steel post. It is enclosed by 2x4 or some other size wood. I assume it is part of the structure of the house, but could it be the main sewer drain? Today we will finish removing that portion and will be better able to tell what that "pipe" is. it is round and it is metal (iron, steel, or whatever. Can anyone here help me brain storm this one?
Thanks. Be well
