In response to Re: vents....where are they?

: i recently realized that there are no vents for the plumbing lines coming out of our roof. I checked around the whole exterior of the house but found nothing. Where are they? Is there somewhere else they could be? We have two full baths in our home. Is it possible they weren't put in and if so can they be installed now and is it a big job to do. Any help before I have to call a plumber would be appreciated. Thanks

Joe,
You could check in the attic and see if the vents are there. If that is the case, you can extend them through the roof with flashings.

Just a note: My brother used to buy homes that were homeowner plumbed with no vents at all. It made for fun correcting the drain problems. It's no fun when your washer runs and causes the gucky sink crud to rise and fill up the kitchen sink everytime.
