Frozen Plumbing Vent


I believe I have established the source of a sewer-type smell in my basement that only occurs during ultra cold weather. I think the plumbing vent is freezing over. Among other things it vents a pumpover to my septic system that I have in my basement and the whiffs I occasionally get are near that, again only in really cold, blowy weather. I will wait until warm weather to fix it, but does anyone recommend a remedy to this, when I do get around to it?
