Spotlight on Vent Pipes

Ever wonder what that stubby little pipe sticking out of your roof does? In all likelihood it’s the plumbing vent pipe, and it plays a very important role in your home’s plumbing system. The vent pipe helps waste water flow through your drain pipes and exhausts foul sewage odors out of the roof and away from your home. Watch this video to learn more about vent pipes, why they are important, and what you can do if you suspect your vent pipe is clogged.

If your toilets are flushing slowly or your notice foul sewage odors in your home, contact a plumbing company in San Jose, CA to inspect your vent pipe. You can go up the roof and check the vent for debris yourself, but if you aren’t comfortable working on your roof or if you can’t easily spot or clear debris from the vent, your plumber will be able to get rid of whatever is clogging your vent pipe so your plumbing works as it should.
