I think my bathroom is haunted. Everytime I go to use it I put the toilet seat up and I come back an hour later and its down. This happens all night like 6 times a night. Only men live here, I rent a room outta house, theres only 3 guys that live here and my bedroom is next to the bathroom so I hear all the traffic going to the bathroom. This mainly happens at night while the others are sleeping and I'm awake. I'm a night owl. I wasnt too concerned till I started putting the pieces together. The other noticeable concern I have is the odor coming from the commode, its an awful smell, a mixture of ammonia and god awful sewer gas. I thought it was from the other guys missing while wee's so what i did was really scrub the commode. A very thorough scrubbing using bleach and other hard chemicals. About 3 hours the smell was back and I'm scared  right now because I know the strong odor is a demonic trait. I could really use some advice here.

Hello and welcome to the boards :D

I am sure it would be scary, I wouldn't like to share the bathroom with anyone. especially another 3 someones. Maybe one of the other males or even all of them put the seat down occasionally, I am sure they wouldn't need it up every time you or they use the toilet.

You might also want to check the wax seal around the toilet/commode base for any breaks in the seal. You could have the cleanest commode and a smell worse than a demonic odour :yes: if there is a leak. If it all checks out the only other thing I can suggest is to report the odour to the landlord so they can deal with it.

Regarding the smell, sewer gas can sometimes come up through the toilet, there could be a problem in the pipes causing it to back up.

Some toilet seats will keep going down. I've had one that wouldn't stay up, drove me crazy and I had to replace it. It happens more frequently also if you have a fuzzy toilet seat cover, that can keep the seat from firmly being against the back of the toilet, and then gravity takes over

You’re getting up 6 times a night to go to the bathroom?  Might want to cut back on liquids. Anywho...maybe the others are putting it down due to the smell. Have you discussed this with them? I would suggest calling a plumber.

The odor problem is probably due to the toilet vent stack being either fully or partially obstructed allowing sewer gas to build up in the pipe, when the toilet is flushed the water goes down and the sewer gas comes in until the trap refills with water.  As for the activity regarding the toilet seat... maybe a ghost of a scorned female occupant of the past... any of the ladies will likely tell you that a splash landing caused by some man leaving the lid up is not so easily forgiven... :)   A good plumber and some consideration may resolve the problem.

I wake up maybe 3 times to use the toilet, and I thought that was a lot.

I agree that a plumber and possibly diet might be worth looking at.

Hello pipeslayer!

I agree with Klainey and Vlawde.  You might want to check the toilet when it comes to those odors.

I do not think there is anything for you to worry about.  There are no demons in your bathroom or ghosts.

Unless the house had a previous occupant with some serious gastrointestinal issues, I wouldn't worry.  I can't think of any reason why a demon or a poltergeist would mess with a toilet in that way, unless it could actually scare you.  If this was some Hollywood movie, the obvious answer is that it's the ghost of someone whose body is stuffed somewhere with the floor, walls, or ceiling of the bathroom.  Since that also seems unlikely, I think the mundane answers given above are more likely.  However, if you want to have some fun, get one of those thermal cameras or some attachment for your phone, and film away.
