Re: Bathroom Odor

did you try putting a bead of clear caulking along the toilet bowl where it meets the floor.

also your stack could have a crack in it. check for a hole or any signs of decay or crack.

Calking around the base of the toilet will do nothing to stop sewer gas. How do you check for cracks in the stack when most of it is in the wall? Anything below the toilet would show up as a leak.
