Q. Just had new piping/ toilet installed in small bathroom.
Now there's an incredibly thick welding smell! The vent seems to have no effect.
Any ideas how to get rid of this super strong smell?

A. Hi Deborah. You had posted this on thread 8535 about "Welding fumes from galvanized metal", but I wouldn't expect either welding or galvanized materials in a bathroom ... and I'm not really familiar with bathroom plumbing construction work causing strong smells.
Do you see either some 'glued' plastic pipe or some soldered copper pipe in your bathroom?
