New Soil Stack

There are several tasks at home that are not made for DIY. While watching a tutorial can be fun, it may not be a good idea in the end. We have seen several cases where homeowners made a mess while trying to fit a new soil stack.

Calling our plumbing team is the best solution. We have been offering professional plumbing services for more than 17 years now. No matter what the issue is with your plumbing system, Wallsend Plumber is always available for the community. 

Soil Stack Defined

Every building that has drainage pipe systems such as toilets, sinks, and baths, is connected to a series of pipes. They are all connected to a network of horizontal pipes called waste pipes, or soil and vent pipes. The function of these horizontal pipes is to transport any wastewater from a property by joining with a vertical pipe outside of the building.

The vertical pipe located outside the building is known as the soil stack. It is characterized by an occasional sound from the flow of water as wastewater flows downwards from an upper drain. 

Once any wastewater from your property hits the vertical soil stack, any solid waste and wastewater travel down the pipe while the gasses travel up through the soil stack vent and air admittance valve. This will prevent any smell from leaking.

At the bottom part of the soil stack, you can find an exit to a waste removal system. This exit could lead to a sewer located in an urban area, or to a septic tank if your property is in a rural area.

When any gases are not allowed to vent through the top of the pipework’s air admittance valve due to some blockage, the gases will vent through the easiest opening in the building. 

This will relieve the pressure within the pipe. However, the building will be filled with harmful and foul-smelling gases.

Ways on How Waste and Soil Pipes Become Blocked

There are several instances that waste and soil stack pipes are blocked. When this happens, you need to hire a professional plumbing company to carry out a soil stack repair service. If your soil stack becomes blocked or needs a professional to service the pipe, Wallsend Plumber is always here to help you.

Horizontal waste pipes become frequently blocked due to non-flushable items being flushed down the toilet. Fats, oils, and grease that are being washed down in the kitchen sink also contribute. 

The vertical soil stack pipe can also be affected by these blockages and the buildup of uratic salt. Uratic salt can narrow the soil stack pipe, blocking the waste from flowing through the pipe. There are a few common signs that indicate a problem within your soil stack pipe system. Here are some of them.

  • Toilets draining away far more slowly than usual
  • Toilets becoming blocked when flushing
  • Sinks, showers, and baths not draining water efficiently
  • Foul-smelling gases coming from drains within the property

Blockages are worse at the bottom of the soil stack. This is because the bottom part of the stack is where waste and non-flushable items are collected. When the bottom of your soil stack is blocked, there are further signs that can alert you to this. Some of these are:

  • Water bursting or leaking from the joints of the soil stack pipe
  • Overflowing dirty water and wastewater at the bottom of the pipe

When you notice any of these telltale signs that are listed above, this is a sign for you to call a plumbing company before the problem becomes even worse and an even more expensive problem in the future. 

How to Prevent Soil Stack Blockage

When your waste pipes and soil stacks are blocked, they pose a significant problem to your property. If you own a commercial property and run a business, your daily operations can grind to a halt. For homes, the health of the entire family can be put at risk. A simple blockage can become a worse problem later down the line if it is not dealt with during its initial stages.

If you want to remove this threat, you need to have a routine maintenance plan for soil stack cleaning. This will remove the need for emergency callouts or any costly reactive services. 

This is because the problem will be identified before it arises, and solved there and then.

If you want to set up a regular soil stack service with our experts at Wallsend Plumber, call us and we will help you. We offer free estimates, on-site assessments, and routine maintenance from the first point of contact.
