INTRODUCTION WHAT IS VENT PIPE ? Vent Pipe also known as Vent Stack , helps regulate the air pressure in your plumbing system – remove gas and odours. However, no water runs through the plumbing vent pipe. It is vertical pipe attached to a drain line and runs through the roof of your home. The Vent Stack is the pipe leading to the main roof vent, It channels the exhaust gases to the vent and helps maintain proper atmospheric pressure in the waste system.

INSTALLATION Step 1 Go into your attic . Position the vent pipe up to the bottom of the roof. With the pipe in a vertical position, trace around the pipe, using a pencil. The penetration will be oval -- to have a round pipe exit vertically through a pitched roof, you need an oval hole in the roof. Step 2 Cut through the plywood and roofing material with your reciprocating saw.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
