Thread: Vent Freezing

  1. #1

    Default Vent Freezing

    My drain vent that exits up on the roof of the house slowly freezes up during the course of winter. This ends up being noticeable by flushing the toilets!
    any ideas/suggestions on how to keep this pipe from icing up???? thanks...

    Default vents

    I am not sure how it would be noticeable by flushing the toilets, because they are the only fixtures that do not really need a vent and flush better without one.

    Talking small vent or cold climate????

    I suppose you could go up onthe roof every so
    often and throw a handful of morton salt pellets
    into that vent stack..... that would break it loose
