    Default smelly toilet

    Sometime back I had this problem of a smelly toilet. Called several plumbers and they couldn't find the cause. One even inserted a second air vent without success. I even changed it to a second new other make toilet.

    As surprising as it may seem there was a defect in the construction/design of the toilet itself. It was allowing an air passage carrying out the bad smell passed the trap.

    So beware even when buying a new toilet it may happen that its badly design

    I don't rememeber the brands or suppliers. I know one was from China and the other one from Malaysia. Just beware design failure can be difficult to sort out.

    I had a chinese toilet piece many years ago. It was fine until it just felt apart one day. I decided to install something like a wall mounted toilet instead, here's a reference https://sanitaryreview.com/best-wall-mounted-toilets/, I think that was a good choice despite that I made some water pipe reroute as a result. By the way, such rerouting may help you with your problem and source of smell.
