House without vents
Posted by John Cannon on May 18, 1998 at 11:15:38:
I recently had a lady call me about sewer gas in her house when she turned her air conditioner on for the first time this year. Upon checking the 20 year old home I found much to my dismay that there are no vents in the entire drainage system. The bathrooms and kitchen drain into a 6" drain pipe that goes to the septic tank. The homeowner said that (guess why?) the plumbing has never worked well since the house was built. This home is in excess of $100K, and is located on top of a hill which may have aided the drainage. Any suggestions on how to help them?
