    My Darkroom smells like poop

    After finally reconstructing and refitting the darkroom with all the equipment I set one night to try it out. I called my cousin who has some films for development and he came to test the new Jobo.
    During the development I smelled something bad. Pretty bad.
    "You farted" I accused him.
    "No, I did not" he denied the accusation.
    "You are not supposed to fart inside a darkroom you know", I insisted.
    "I did not fart!", he exclaimed.
    I smelled more carefully.
    "Yes, it does smell too shitty to be just a fart".
    It thought a bit. Then it came to me.
    You see, there used to be a functioning toilet seat in the room which was removed during the reconstruction. But the pipe remained and I thought I could use it for water drainage. Unfortunately it seems to be pretty connected to the sewage system and it carries all the aromas of mother nature in it, especially when someone in the appartment building uses it.

    I have called the plumber and meanwhile I have left the door open.
    I am sure all your chemicals, not even sepia smells that bad!

    How about that for a photographic related toilet humor?

    Would you like to buy a matching tray?

    That sewer gas is some really nasty stuff, you definitely don't want to be breathing that.

    I'm surprised they didn't cap the line when they removed the toilet.

    I wouldn't light a match in there either. That methane is pretty flammable :o
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    The air extractor was probably drawing more gas from the drain into the room that it was pushing out.

    Hi, Ari, This is a problem I'm sure you will sort out at your own convenience.

    If you're going to plumb the drain into a sink, a simple S trap in the pipe should solve your problem.
