Water Draining From Toilet Bowl
My girlfriend lives in a mobile home and she has one toilet that the water keeps draining from the bowl, yet the tank stays filled and the toilet is not running. The home is on a foundation and there is no visible water leak in the basement. When the bowl drains there is an overwhelming odor of sewer gas.
I know that this sounds like a blocked vent pipe. I have never cleared a vent pipe before and her father is likely to be the one to fix it, but it may be a few days until he is able to do it. Since the water keeps draining from the bowl, is there anything that can be done to keep the sewer gas from coming back into the home until this is fixed properly?
