Be a man and do the repairs yourself,Or are you one of these "penpushers" who hasn't hands to wipe their own arse  ::)

Theres enough cowboys in the building trade these days unfortunately without us all giving it a shot.

A sure way to make an idiot out of yourself is to try to do something you don't have the first clue about. You should bear that in mind sometimes LL.  ;)

Thanks folks, something to work on. I think the smell is coming form the toilet.

Its hard to describe the shape of the house but suffice to say the ensuite bathroom has no windows. Maybe its not too serious but it needs to get sorted.
As others have said,
usually its the smell coming back up the sink or the bath, if the outlets from the both of them join into the toilet drain at the back of the toilet and the plumbing design is suspect.
A careful nose test first thing in the morning would confirm it (if it is so).

Goatlover/Goatlover wannabe - you'll be delighted to know I fixed it myself with the help of the advice of the guys here.

Thanks folks - seems to be sorted now.

Smell was coming back up out of shower. Once I fired a bit of water down there a few times the smell went.

Magpie, that tells me that the shower isn't a much used utility in your household  :o

Despite my inability to do "manly work" as our friend calls it I live in a house that has a main bathroom and an ensuite and (wait for it) - both have showers! Funnily enough, we use the shower that has the walls tiled round it and a shower door up all the time as opposed to the other one which is only getting done now.  ;)

Our water pump at the borehole has stopped working now for 3 days.
No running water at all in the house and the rest of the family have moved out to the mother in laws.
That was a tactic used supposed to hurry me up to fix it.
I think it has backfired on them a I am enjoying the peace. ;D 
The inner workings of a centrifugal pump is not my forte.

Thinking of replacing the bathroom suite. My plumber has advised me to replace the gravity fed tank the roofspace with a hot water pressurised tank which will give much better hot water pressure throughout the house. He quoted me 1500 for these works alone. As I'm no plumbing expert, should I expect to pay that kind of money?

Is that for just his time or is that for all his plumbing work and the pressurised water tank?
