Do you have plumbing vents problem? There are several different things that could cause a ventilation pipe to be plugged. You can pinpoint the problem before you fix it or call for emergency plumbing service Coalfalls.
The causes of a plugged ventilation pipe can be:
#1 - Animal trapped in plumbing vent. There could be an animal building a nest in there or get stuck inside the pipe.
#2 - The plumbing might actually get a clog stuck in there from toilet paper or hair build up right where the ventilation pipe is depending on how they ran into the sweeping 90 degrees elbow on there.
You can tell that the ventilation pipe is plugged. Here are some indications of plugged plumbing vents.
Mystery odour. You will have a smell build up in the house. Most of the time it happens through your sinks or tubs where the smell is not able to be ventilated through the pipe and it will back up into the house.
Gluck sound after flushing. You will notice a bad gurgling sound when you are flushing your toilet because the air that is trapped in the pipe has nowhere to escape so when you flush the toilet it is coming out of the toilet.
Your drain will have very hard time draining. They will be very slow even if you snake them or plunge them because the air that is trapped in there has created a vacuum seal that nothing can pass through.
Check your plumbing vents to make sure that nothing is clogging it. In that way, your drains can run smoothly and you have no smell coming out of your house.
