    Bought this house a year ago, noticed a urine smell from the toilet so I replaced the toilet with a new one. Later I was still getting the smell so I called a plumber who came and said thte flange was not level with the tile floor, so he added some spacers and it was better (that was in oct/nov). Now that its warmed up again I notice the same smell coming from the toilet. Septic was pumped less than year ago.

    I'm looking for ideas on what it could be before I call another plumber. I snapped this pic of the flange before the plumber added some spacers.
    Thanks!

    If the toilet is being flushed after every use, my guess would be that someone has poor aim.

    spacers

    If NOT installed properly, spacers can BE the problem, rather than the cure.
