We have had the same smell issue in our jack & jill bathroom which has a shower, toilet and hand basin. Have a sceptic tank and electric motor and the really bad smell just came all of a sudden and we cant shift it...

I have done all the advice re: cleaning outside drains - all looked clear, the buckets of water down loo, bicarb of soda & white vinegar in all 3 units, and then tried soda crystals but the smell still remained - stronger than ever.
I read lots of advice on the internet (including this site) and I decided to open the cover on the main drain and left off for 48 hours - I also poured drain blocker down the holes in the shower, the hand basin waste & the basin overflow and I left all of them to work overnight. I also tried a tip of leaving a bowl open coffee grinds in a tub on the window-sill and left the window open on the first notch to allow a small amount of ventilation in the room

HEY PRESTO !!!!!! The coffee smell seems to start over powering the horrible smell in the rooms - and the horrible smell slowly starts to go and after 24 hours it now seems to have gone...

I have left the coffee grinds in the room and the small amount of ventilation so see if this continues to work for good... fingers crossed....

I will keep you all updated - but so far - so good and its a 100% improvement so we are happy and can use the rooms and bathroom again.
