I have a sewer (septic tank) gas problem. When a toilet is set you can see the water inside the bowl moving; it is like a blower motor inside the lines. Take up the toilet and the pressure coming out of the pipes is so much you can't stop it. Usually you can stuff a rag in the flange but not this one. The home I bought is in SW Florida Everglades where it is hot and humid. Why is that pressure so strong in those pipes? I had the septic tank serviced and can smell that perfume those guys put in it. Any ideas?:mad: I can set a toilet and 4, 5 6 days later the wax ring is melting from all that warm humid air running through the pipes. I had the pipes cameraed and wasd told the pipes are fine. The roof vents are right beside the fart fan vents, and the lead around those vents is damaged but that PRESSURE is stronger than any open sewer line you have ever seen.
