    Had same problem some years back. With only two people, the septic system didn't generate much heat. Resolved by insulataing the vent pipe in the attic with 4" fibreglass. Good luck.

    Cheers

    David,

    Am I reading this right? Code aside, an unvented vertical 18" long (flange-to-wye) basement toilet branch would not be a problem in real life?
