Sealing Main Stack


I am experiencing leakage on the floor surrounding the main stack in my home. I am wondering if it is possible to seal the leak from inside the stack with epoxy, etc.

Thanks

Sealing Main Stack


Can you provide more information?
Is it a plumbing vent stack or furnace vent?

Sealing Main Stack


The best way to repair it is to cut out the leaking joint and replace it with new ABS pipe (PVC is white). It's a fairly simple repair if you have access to the vent stack. You probably should open the wall up anyway to check the extent of the water damage.
