Critter Quitter

Plumbing Vent Repair Flashing for 2-1/2 in. and 3 in. Lead Flashing (1-1/2 in. Dia and 2 in. Dia Vent)

$3000 /each

Overview

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.

Will this damage the vent pipe since your are screwing into the PVC vent stack to attach the vent guard?

Asked by: GP
Hi. I installed mine last week. I don't believe that the screws can actually penetrate the thicker (Schedule 40) PVC that should have been used for your vent stacks. Since the screws are "anchored" in the plastic cap/vent guard and it's softer, my guess is the screws would strip the plastic before they penetrated the harder PVC. But I didn't remove and inspect (as I couldn't have seen through my lead flashing anyhow). Even if it were to penetrate the PVC, I don't see how this would be a problem as there's no channel for any drips of water to get in. Not only is the screw threaded tightly through the plastic cap, there's also a funnel built inside the cap that channels any water from the top to go down the center of your PVC pipe.

Is this sheet lead for flashing?

I am looking for a roll of sheet lead, probably 3 inches wide. Is this available?
Asked by: TeddyBear
I don't know. I fitted this cap over a one-piece lead flashing based with a soldered-on lead collar. The base was about 1 ft square and the collar about the same in height. I got mine from a plumbing supply store. This cap was to fit over the lead flashing to protect it from squirrels as well as improve its looks since lead doesn't take paint well. The funnel built inside the cap also ensures rainwater goes down the center of your PVC vent pipe.

Plumbing Vent Repair Flashing for 2-1/2 in. and 3 in. Lead Flashing (1-1/2 in. Dia and 2 in. Dia Vent) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.

These work very well and are easy to install (other than having to perch on a steep roof). I have a 12/12 slope roof which made the screws closest to the roof a bit hard to access so I had to use a right angle ratcheting screw driver on these. Also you may have to adjust the bottom cut a bit to ensure a tight fit next to the flashing as the slope here is sometimes slightly different from the adjoining roof.

Only negatives, you have to cut the roof angle yourself and that was a little tricky. I purchased 5 units and installed 4. It took a little over an hour to cut the roof angle on all of them and install them.
