Well how did you make out with your smell or has it still not been taken care of yet? Keepaeyeonit

very strange, went for a week vaca 2 different places and after the first good flush smelled nothing. Now that it's been sitting for over a week I can smell it creeping back??????? Frustrating
The kicker is I canceled an appointment with my dlr thinking it fixed itself!

If you check under the bathroom sink or kitchen sink is the smell stronger? If so there is a cap on the end of a pipe near the sink drain. It is called an air admittance valve and it needs to be replaced. $9 Home Depot.

Did you find the source of the odour? Just curious as I am interested in this unit.

Had a real bad odor in mine also. Took it to a repair shop after I drained and cleaned the black tank good. Checked the vent in the tank, it's ok. Next thing he did was take fill the black tank and toilet up to the rim and let it sit to see if there any leaks. All good. Figured the problem was I was not starting out with enough water. Should be 3 to 5 gallons, enough to cover the solids with water and allow the chemicals to work. Problem solved.


Started Out With Nothing,
Still Have Most Of It Left!

That is what I always do. After I dump and flush, I pour a 10L pail of water in the tank with 2 cups of Calgon softener diluted in the pail water. Keeps the walls nice slick so no sticking.
