There is a smell in customers powder room, mostly emanating out of the boxed in screen area at the top 1/2 of a boxed in (and tiled) vertical heat pipe with decorative screen. It's June, and problem just started several weeks ago - so not heating related. Smell is sewer/methane type smell. I changed seal on toilet - didn't solve problem. I even did smoke test - nothing found. So then, I put cuff all around outide vent pipe and have it blowing away from house, just in case gas was leaking from there into the floor above - It still didn't solve the problem. Really dk what else to do. MAybe I was a bit messy with new wax seal and although new, maybe this one is not on right? Also, customer says that the room was redone several years ago and they had their plumber move the toilet two inches closer to wall. I'm not sure how that was done - but if some other flang or other pipe assembly is taking to stink hole, maybe that's the problem. Any good ideas are appreciated? Thanks
