This message is concerning sewer smell in our bathroom. After installing a vent in the line between our shower and the main drain line we still could smell sewer when using this shower. Well we then did the smoke test. We cut the main drain at the septic tank and pluged off all the vents. We blew smoke (designed for this purpose) into the main line (which is about 20 feet from the bathroom in question). We did this for about 30 minutes. Smoke you could see seeping out the vents of the top of the roof. But no smoke came out of any line in the bathroom in question. We even applyed more preasure until it blew bubbles in to the tolets. This told us we had to much air and we cut it down. At no time did we see any smoke comming from the shower line to the main line.
What else cane we do? You think we have spooks in our house causing this? We are at our wits end on this and need some closure. Please, Please, Help us!!
