Odor

In my half bath, there is a horrible odor, smells like sewage, any thoughts. It seems to be its worse on hot days.

Could be a number of things. Start with the easy test. Plug the sink and fill it. Then release the water and flush the toilet ate the same time. If the sink gurgles and bubbles, its a clogged vent. The reason fo the smell is that the trap in the sink is being sucked out since the toilet needs air to drain properly. Next thing would be a broken wax seal on the toilet. Check around the base for water. If it is accessable from underneath, check under it for seeping water. Let us know and we can give you direction on fixing it. Good luck.
