Signs Your Plumbing Boot Needs To Be Replaced
A plumbing boot, also referred to as a roof boot, helps to seal off the gap left between your plumbing vent and the roof. Your plumbing vent, also called a plumbing stack, extends out of the roof. It pulls air into your plumbing lines, providing the air needed to pressurize your water. Roofing materials can only get so close to the vent coming out of your roof. A boot is a collar-like item that is placed around the base of the pipe, filling in the space gap between the vent and the roofing materials.
