In response to Re: Plumbing vents
The number of vents through the roof is no indication of whether or not the plumbing is vented properly.

: I am currently looking to purchase an old farm house that has (supposed) updtated plumbing. There is a full bath on each of the two floors. The house inspector pointed out that there was only one vent through the roof, and that it appeared to low to be a vent for the second floor bath. There is no gurgling sound in the pipes when the water runs or drains. The home owner knows nothing. What do you think is going on here. Is a vent necessary? Can there be a vent other than on the roof, and is this dangerous? Is it a big job to install? HELP!!!
