    Default Odor in bathroom

    I have searched all the questions in the odor in bathrooms, but none apply.
    The house is 4 years old and ever since we moved in my wife has complained about the stinky bathroom. We have two bathrooms and only the one has this problem.
    The smell is like sulfa coming from the toilet. My son was visiting yesterday and he complained of the smell.
    I have inspected the tub and sink to make sure water is in the trap, and toilet, all ok. We have a vent in both baths. We have a septic system. The vent over the smelly bath comes streight up from the plumbing and only rises about 18" above the roof. We have a lot of wind in the area where we live.
    Thanks

    Sounds like sewer gas smell. Does it happen when the wind is low or there is no wind? Wondering if somehow the wind is forcing sewer gas up through the water.

    Sounds like a change in diet is in order.
    Sorry couldn't resist.

    Short of having a plumber look at it you could try putting a clorox toilet tablet in the tank.
    HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL!
