Smelly Toilet Water

2016-09-25-09-19-10
On Thursday we noticed a foul smell coming from our bathroom. It took a while to identify the toilet as the cause. The water (after flushing) smelled like raw sewage and had a black tint to it.

According to the notice posted in the building, the rainwater collection system is being repaired and chlorine has been added to the purification system to “assist with the current odour”.

The new water coming in is already much clearer, but there is still a lingering smell in our bathroom. A smelly black film has built up in our toilet tank. Has anyone else had luck getting rid of it? I took a toilet brush to the parts I could easily scrub but it still looks pretty gross. I’m not sure the chemicals alone will clear it up.

Black Tie Property Services did an excellent job power washing the balconies. Really happy with how clean our balcony is now.
