If I buy one will it tell me how to find an unfindable smell in my forward head
? I have new hoses, new holding tank
, new larger vent, new head
and new through hull
for the overboard
drain. Have stuck my head and hands into every hole and locker and bilge
area in that head and can find nothing. Even removed the new head and checked and cleaned under the head in case there had been a leak there. Felt around all the hoses, connections and valves and can find nothing.
I open the locker where the holding tank
is and no smell. I open the door that covers the valves and the holding tank drain and no smell. I stick my head in the bilge
next to the through hull
and no smell. But I close the door to the head, come back in a couple of days and it smells like the old outhouse at my grandfather's farm.
the smell is coming from below, based on an experiment
. I taped around all the doors and lockers in the head, closed the window and the dorade and the door. Came back in a couple of says and smell mostly not there. My guess is stopping air flow and ventilation prevented smell from somewhere under the head from venting up into the head?
