or rather scarred but scared works too
Too much info. .... I'm getting scared
Dan ... you will have to check with your regional building authority as to how and what is allowed.
for example in this area :
Where a vent pipe passes through the roof, it must be protected from frost closure by increasing the pipe size to at least 75 mm (3 in.) in diameter immediately before penetrating the roof.
A vent located in attic spaces must be insulated.
Vent pipes must be installed without depressions in which moisture can collect.
The one thing to remember the vent pipe will have to be higher than the highest plumbing fixture.
I find it strange there is no vent pipe .... unless some unusual remodel took place or it may have cut off in the attic during roofing work.

I found out what my sewer problem was and just wanted to let others know so they can check. Note: I have an older home, and i have trees growing around my home, i have found out that some of the piping under the floor is bad and roots from the trees have blocked the pipes causeing the blockage. OK- heres the tough question, by the way, we did check the venting of the sewer pipe and was all clear, so my qustion for someone is, If the sewer vent is open, how does the blocked sewer pipe cause water to be vaccuumed out the traps beings there is a ventpipe and has ample air circulation to let air down??? One of life's mysteries or not.??
