Plumbing vents are an important part of how your drain system works. There are many codes and regulations that determine the size, placement, and other aspects of where, how, and why plumbing vents are installed. But all that aside, let's understand the basic reason why we need plumbing vents.
Have you ever seen a child in a restaurant dip his straw in his drink, put his finger over the top, and then watch him pull out the straw with the water in it? When he lifts his finger the water drops out. That is because water needs air to mover properly, and without proper air is creates suction.
A house without proper plumbing vents has drains, sinks, and toilets that bubble when toilets are flushed or drains are used. If you are experience this, contact us to help you determine if plumbing ventilation is an issue for your home.
