Signs that the house’s vent pipe maybe clogged

Signs that the house’s vent pipe maybe cloggedIf a vent pipe maybe clogged, that can be a serious problem. Vent pipes are an essential part of sewer line systems. For water to drain out of the tub, sinks and shower, air must be able to enter the plumbing system. To see how this works in a practical way, insert a straw into a soda or glass of water. Draw a little fluid into the straw and put your finger over the top. Remove the straw from the glass and notice that the fluid in the straw is not flowing out. Once you remove your finger, the fluid flows out of the straw. Likewise, in the context of your sewer and drain lines, if the house’s vent pipe is clogged or blocked, water will not drain.

If your home’s vent pipe has become clogged, none of the sinks, bathtubs or toilets will drain properly. Water will back up at every drain. The water may drain over several hours time, or it may not drain at all.

Snaking each drain or pouring drain cleaners into the drains will have no effect; many homeowners try this and become frustrated as a result. If a vent pipe is clogged, a professional plumber should be called.

If your roof vent becomes clogged, Western Rooter can take care of that for you. If a simple cleaning won’t get the job done, we can also run a sewer line inspection camera down the line, and get a visual on whatever might be going on inside the roof vent.
