Product Details

In many areas of the United States plumbing vents are sealed with lead. Unfortunately, squirrels like to gnaw on the lead and tear it open, potentially causing roof leaks. Over time, these leaks can cause significant damage. In addition plumbing vents are a major entry point for frogs, rats and other animals to enter into toilets. In the past the only way to repair this was to call a contractor, have them pull shingles, replace the lead and put a screen on the repaired vent. A repair that requires shingle removal rarely looks good potentially exposes damage and is expensive. Critter Quitter offers a cost effective and attractive solution to this problem. A home owner can repair their damaged plumbing vents without having to remove shingles or call a professional. Simply cut the unit to match your roof pitch, slide the unit onto the damaged vent and secure with 4 stainless steel screws (provided). The internal component will direct rain water into the vent keeping the damaged portion dry and keep animals out of plumbing. The unit is easily removed if plumbing vent access is required.
  • Repairs damaged plumbing vents sealed with lead without removing shingles
  • Keeps frogs and rats out of toilets
  • Slides over existing flashing making repair easy, no need to call an expensive contractor
  • Injection molded UV stabilized polypropylene construction for long life
  • Stainless steel anodized black screws included
  • Embossed pitch lines and pre drilled screw holes make field cutting and installation quick and easy
  • Matt black finish is attractive and easily painted if desired

Q:the lead vent pipe coming out of the roof appears to be about 3", which critter quitter should I get -- tired of inspecting the toilet bowl every time I go in the bathroom!

Answer This Question

A:  Recommend you measure the diameter of the vent pipe to determine the exact dimension. The "Critter Quitter" small is for 2 1/2" to 3" vent pipes. The large is for anything larger.  I used 4 in total on my house, one small and 3 large.

by|Jul 5, 2022

    A:  It would be best if you can measure the actual diameter of the lead around the pipe. A Size S Small Critter Quitter has a 3-inch diameter, the Size L Large has a 4 inch. If your lead diameter is under 3 inches use the Size S Small unit, if it's around 3 3/4 use the Size L Large unit. I would bet it's a 2-inch internal diameter pipe with a 2 3/4-inch lead flashing around it. There is a video on the Home Depot site that shows you how to measure your vent to select the proper sized Critter Quitter.

        Q:Have you found that this violates code compliance as it tapers your vent down to whatever your screen size is? I could see this product causing performance issues with a vent stack.

        Answer This Question

        A:  We have never had an issue with code. We have applied for code review and been instructed code does not apply as it’s an after-market product that has no structural components and is easily removed. It’s been cleared by Florida Product Approval and Texas Dept of Insurance, which are the governing bodies for these types of products in their states. In addition, we have sold thousands to homeowners and real estate agents that use them to pass inspection and have never had an issue. There is no restriction of air flow, the design is sufficient to allow enough air to flow with no effect on performance.

          Answer This Question

          A:  No, unfortunately the large unit only has a 4 inch internal diameter, it is designed to fit 3 inch vent pipes with 3 3/4 inch lead flashings.

            Answer This Question

            A:  The largest retailed Critter Quitter is the large size which has a 4 inch internal diameter. It will not fit a 4 inch pipe if it has the standard 5 inch flashing.

              A:  Not sure if this helps but the large does say Critter Quitter Large Size Plumbing Vent Repair for 4 in. Lead Flashing (3 in. Vents) I would think lead would be closer to the pipe. This may be a better fit and cheaper. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Perma-Boot-Vent-Pipe-Repair-for-4-in-I-D-Vent-Pipe-in-Black-PBR-312-4BK/203302712?MERCH=REC-_-PLP_Search-_-NA-_-203302712-_-N

                A:  Critter Quitter directly sells an XL size, only available from their website. The XL covers 4.875" to 6" diameter flashing. According to a phone call made to them, the XL is not made of molded polypropylene like the two sizes sold here, since it's too large for the molding machines. Instead it's made of PVC. $79 covers tax and shipping. The order form is at http://critterquitter.com/buy/buy-now/

                  While a little expensive, I’m glad I purchased 5 of them for my roof. Squirrels had done a number on a couple of my lead wrapped vent pipes, and were sure to move on to the next. These stopped them in their tracks. I no longer hear them in that area, and no sign of them in a couple of weeks! In Florida, we have shorter vent stacks, sine we don’t get snow. I cut off a few inches of the Tough plastic so the upper water drip tube was fully inserted into the top of the vent pipe. They were far too tall. It looks better too. Good luck using snips on this plastic! Use a power saw!

                    Very easy to install as long as you're willing to get on your roof. If you are not, then call someone. Either way the installation is simple. It's effective. The squirrels don't eat plastic but they sure love lead.

                    Excellent product!
                    Works as described. Super easy install. It literally took me 5-10 mins per vent pipe to install. This included going up the ladder first to check angle to cut, then cutting on a miter saw (you could easily use a hand saw as well). Slip it over the vent pipe, stick a couple of the included screws in and done. Squirrels had chewed all the tops of my lead seals. This is way less expensive than having a roofer replace the lead boot.
