Microphor Microflush LF-210 toilet smell
#11
i need to revive this topic.

we have been sitting still for nearly 4 months living in the newell. the mid bath stinks horrible when you flush the toilet. rear toilet has no smell.

my toilet goes straight down, the does a couple of 90's before it goes into the tank. there is no smell in the water bay.

we have been doing the chlorox/pinesall thing and i thought it helped at first but not anymore.

i do not stay hooked up to water and sewer. i dump and fill every 4 days or so. that way i can get a complete dump and also i know i get 4 fills out of the water softener tank.

i am perplexed, darlene is annoyed.

thoughts?

The two things I can add to the Clorox/pinesal drill that help keep the funk down are 1. The rotating wind vane style caps on the vent lines, 2 Rhonda washing clothes.

On the vent caps, the wind vane style uses the wind to pull a slight vac on the waste tank.

The washing machine uses a ton of water, so doing clothes sort of cleans the waste tank. I don’t think you have a washer, but you might try rinsing out the tank a few times.

did you use the camco cyclone?

Exactly. And oh yeah, this is counterintuitive, but running the exhaust fan in the bathroom makes it worse.

Check the top of the tank where the pipe goes in. The tanks deform over time and the center of the top sinks in...that releases the caulk that they used to seal the pipe to the tank.

I could not believe that it wasn’t something more than silicone....but guess what. That is all I had.

Recaulking helped a lot.

It also explains Richard’s finding about the exhaust fan.

For what its worth...bill

no smell in the bay and pipes are ok.

i will get a couple of the camco cyclones and put them on.

does anyone use any additives in the tank to help with odor?

We use thetford from Walmart, along with Richard’s suggested mixture. I also flush the tank anytime we are at a locale wth high water pressure.
