What is a Vent Stack?
A vent stack is a vertical pipe that extends from your sewer line to the roof of your home. It is responsible for releasing sewer gases and for absorbing the fresh air needed to prevent those gases from building up in your home.
Causes of Obstruction
Vent stacks can become obstructed for a variety of reasons. The most common culprits are birds’ nests, leaves, and twigs. Storms can also cause debris to build up in the vent stack, which can lead to problems down the road.
