    Default Vent pipe

    I have 3 bathrooms on 3 levels that use the same roof vent pipe. The pipe osolates and makes a high pitch hum. This hum is accompanied by a gurgling in the lower level toilet. The hum starts by itself or when someone uses one of the toilets on the stack. Any ideas?

    Either a partial or complete blocking of the vent. Get on the roof with a snake and look for the problem. Also secure the pipe, especially at the roof jack.

    If you have a clean out servicing this line, run a snake there too.
