Waste Stacks and Vents

  The Waste Stack and Vent consists of pipes leading from waste pipes to the outdoors, usually through the roof. Vents provide a means to release sewer gases outside instead of inside the house. Vents also admit oxygen to the waste system. Vents equalize the pressure on both sides of trap, thereby allowing the trap to hold water, which is needed to maintain effectiveness of the trap. With exceptions, every plumbing fixture must have an attached vent. The top of stacks must be vented too by a stack vent.

The typical home has a complex array of both waste and vent stacks that need to be functioning correctly for your home plumbing system to be trouble free. Aries Plumbing Inc. has years of experience in working with waste and vent stacks.
