Hi, folks. I've bought an old country house with jerry-built plumbing, including a vent stack that is in the crawlspace/basement of the house instead of extending up through the roof. Any ideas? Is extending it up through the upper floors and through the roof the only answer? Can I add pipes/elbows to send it out through an exterior wall and then up past roof level? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, Neil

Actually most states will allow you to use whats called a "pro vent" on the underside of a cabinet, or outside of the house. This vent prevents you from having to go thru floors or ceilings, ask at your local plumbing supply house for a pro vent and they will be happy to help you.
