  • Lived on North ave. and Mobile for 11 years, Galewood area. One shooting this close to me in that time, due to a shady Character my desperate management company allowed to run a tattoo parlor in the commercial space. Been hear 2 yrs. And more than I care to count. Yes. The notorious Austin hood was near by, but on the opposite side of the street was Oak Park for a mile....limited crime on my block and I suspect it was due to that. They wouldn't tolerate the mess!

As Powerful School Councils Fire Principals, Parents Urged to Step Up

"At most schools, parents don't go to LSC meetings and then when stuff like this happens they start to show up," one former LSC member posted to Facebook in response to DNAinfo Chicago's coverage of the turmoil at Edison, 4929 N. Sawyer Ave.

Smell coming from vent stack in basement

Dear neighbors, I am trying to understand the reason for a smell coming from my plumbing in the basement (2 flat on Sawyer near Montrose) and also want to see if others in the area have a similar plumbing set up to my own.

Dear neighbors, I am trying to understand the reason for a smell coming from my plumbing in the basement (2 flat on Sawyer near Montrose) and also want to see if others in the area have a similar plumbing set up to my own. Several months ago we had some sewer backup issues and we had a plumber come out to rod the sewers. Since then we have not had backup, but we still have a relatively mild but unpleasant smell in the basement. The smell appears to be coming from what I believe is the "vent stack," which is made out of PVC pipe. The stack empties into an open hole in the floor basement floor, and seems to have the most water coming down it after we laundry. So two questions: 1) do others have a PVC piping vent that seems to empty into an open hole in the basement floor? 2) have you experienced bad smells coming from this area, and how would you recommend getting rid of the sewer smell?

  • Get your catch basin cleaned. I had serious backup in mine from what appeared to be rags and various wipes clogging it up. Like, five feet of poo.

    Fettes, Love & Sieben is my reco. Chuck is excellent.

  • Yourqueenness on Kimball

    We began pouring water into our basement drains about once a month. That took care of our odor problem. (It never occurred to us that the water would evaporate allowing odors to come up.) Catch basins need cleaning now and then. Less often if you use a catcher in your drains, especially your kitchen drain. Good luck.
