A clogged stack pipe can be a source of unending frustration in a home. In the right condition, a plumbing system works like a well-oiled machine. If a single aspect fails, it throws the whole system into disarray. Blocked stack pipes can lead to other issues that make it hard to enjoy your home. A stack pipe also called a drain waste vent, or soil vent pipe is a critical part of the plumbing system. In a storied property, it transports waste from the upper section to the underground drainage. It usually runs vertically along the side of a house to the roof.
The ventilation on the pipe allows it to eject smells to the atmosphere and let in fresh air. It can be on the outside or inside of a property. Clogging in the stack pipe means that wastewater doesn’t go where it supposed or takes too long to pass through it.

Wet wipes have become the biggest menace to domestic plumbing systems. Most people mistakenly believe that these sanitary products are flushable. Some manufacturers are also selling wet wipes as flushable materials. The problem is that they are not. When you flush wet wipes, they catch on the surface of the piping. A few more down the toilet will cause a partial or full obstruction. After they accumulate, these materials block the way for other objects to travels across the pipes.
Grease, food remnants and fats poured down the kitchen sink. Hair, skin flakes and other foreign objects get into the pipes from the bathroom. After a while, all these materials occupy the diameter of the vent pipe. We are experienced and equipped to remove all manner of blockages from stack pipes.

A stack plumbing pipe connects to the rest of the drainage system and provides the necessary ventilation. Do you know that your drain pipes require fresh air? When air enters the system and sewer gases escape, pressure equalises inside the drain. Now, if foreign objects are blocking this exchange of gases, then various problems can arise.
Foul odours can arise due to the poor flow of wastewater resulting from a blocked stack pipe. Wastewater can accumulate in the drain pipes, building up sewer gases. With nowhere else to go, these gases seep into the house.
An obstructed stack pipe will interfere with the wastewater flow. Drains clear slower than usual, which will affect your sinks, bathtub and toilet.
You might experience trouble when flushing the toilet if the vent pipe is not working at full capacity. It could be that the drainpipes are not getting adequate ventilation, missing with the pressure and consequently, water flow.
A blocked stack pipe can cause air pressure to build up in the drain pipes, leading to gurgling noises in the kitchen or bathroom sinks.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
