How to Fix a Clogged Vent Pipe?

Answer

To fix a clogged vent pipe, use a ladder that allows you to work safely, climb on top of the roof, then with a bright light, shine it down the vent pipe to look for leaves, nesting materials or debris and remove it if reachable. You can also put a garden hose into the vent and turn on the water, as you listen for water backing up or a sudden whoosh when the weight of the water forces the clog into and down the drain.
