    Default Sewer smell from toilet

    Sewer smell coming from under toilet
    I replaced the wax ring still had smell
    Found some holes in stink pipe in wall from screw holes etc and patched them
    Put on new wax ring and am still getting stink from under toilet. First one looked like it had seated well but I am out of ideas. Plumbing is PVC. Could there be a problem with the flange that holds the bolts

    Took it apart again. The spacer between the original closet and wax ring was not sealing to the closet and some air was getting by. I made a gasket out of some quarter inch pretty firm gasket rubber and screwed down the spacer and new wax seal. All is fresh now!
