In response to Re: plumbing vent odor
: We have an ongoing problem with vent smell from our bathroom vent. The odor seems the worst at the front of the house but this often depends on the wind direction. Any suggestions to remedy this? There is no odor inside the house and we have the septic tank pumped at regular intervals.
I had the same problem a few months ago. The odor "drifted" down due to a downdraft in the area because of the trees and surrounding landscape. I raised the vents .(3" diam.), about 36"higher on the roof and that extra heigth sent the smell up into the atmosphere. End of problem. good luck... Hube
