    We have an order in our guest bathroom, which is located near the septic tank. A plumber changed the toilet seal last Spring and the smell was greatly reduced. Now that the AC is no longer running and the air is not circulating, the smell is returning. It seams to get worst after a rain.

    We had the plumber do a check of our vent system when they repaired the toilet seal.

    We are ready to get plumber we sewer oder experience out to do a vent test and trap check.
