    Stagnant water heaters can get a bacterial infection that causes a hygrogen-sulfide gas build up but is killed when the water is heated. Years ago I had a lav poly supply infected on the hot side. ...

    I disagree about the plain wax ring vs. one with 'funnel' or 'no-seep'. I've used the latter for close to 28 years, lots of stools, and I prefer them. For one, it directs the waste a little further...
