    Re: You'llaugh at this. Pull odors from toilet bowl.

    The hose would rise through the hollow wall behind the toilet and connect to the lid vent hole.
    (First, I want to try it before making any holes to learn if it will work well enough.)

    Drawing odors right from the bowl before they disperse may be effective.

    I have installed vent fans in impossible locations and have run romex where electricians said was impossible.

    But before I go with a vent fan, I want to try the small vacuum hose idea.
    Not high air flow, but small airflow where it may be effective.

    If it works, there will be little noticeable, and it will be quiet.

The toto works the best for odor control and cleans you very good also. I don't sell this model but I have used and installed quite a few. you will be happy with it
      Mike, it sounds like you use every seat before you sell it. I'm sending mine back

        1. 'Bathroom out of order' sign on the door.
        2. Put a dead mouse near the front door. They'll never notice the odor from the bathroom
        3. If they are your friends, they will probably miss the odor if it's gone.
        4. Light a match
        5. Keep a scented candle burning
        6. A plug in ozone machine (they make them the size of a night light) will quickly oxidize the odors.
        7. Cook fish and hard boiled eggs for your guests.
        8. Ask your guests to enter by the back door.
        9. You may lose too much suction through the trip lever
        10. Interesting idea though, let us know if it works.

          LOL!
          I thought the same.

            1. 'Bathroom out of order' sign on the door.
            Wife does not want them using the yard.
            2. Put a dead mouse near the front door. They'll never notice the odor from the bathroom
            They would think it was dropped and bring it in to be cooked.
            3. If they are your friends, they will probably miss the odor if it's gone.
            Correct.
            4. Light a match
            PlumbeRick says I'll blow the place up.
            5. Keep a scented candle burning
            See #4
            6. A plug in ozone machine (they make them the size of a night light) will quickly oxidize the odors.
            O3 is bad for the lungs.
            7. Cook fish and hard boiled eggs for your guests.
            That's what Youqing always makes.
            8. Ask your guests to enter by the back door.
            Then they're exposed to the fish and garlic vapors.
            9. You may lose too much suction through the trip lever
            Thought of that. May make a felt gasket.
            10. Interesting idea though, let us know if it works.
            If the basement explodes, you'll probably read about my Darwin Award.

              I have installed in my own home for test purposes quite a few different models and I have sold a number of brand new never been used still in the box models.

                And pure oxygen is explosive. Used in the small amounts needed to freshen your bathroom it is harmless.

                  The high voltage discharges from my huge Tesla Coil produce much ozone.
                  A clean "electric" smell but unfortunately it is bad for pulmonary tissues and anything rubber.
                  Best not to have any exposure to O3.

                        Thank you.
                        Nice idea.
                        But I wanto pull the odors in through thexisting flush rim holes by vacuuming air out of the tank above the tank water.
                        Still have not gotten the parts together to do it.
                        Thought I'd power the vacuumotor withe light switch, butheir motion sensor idea is also good.
