Problems with U bends after attic conversion

    Hi All

    Had an attic conversion over covid. The company no longer exists so I cant chase them for repairs.

    One big problem is that, since the attic was done there sems to be a vacuum thing going on where the U bend from the bath gets sucked dry resulting in the bathroom smelling horrible. If I run the bath it is ok for a short while.

    Is there a pressure valve or something I can get to cap the downpipe to stop this happening or any other suggestions?
