I Googled it and found several blogs. Thank you....always good to learn something new.
Should all the drains and overflows (sinks and tubs) be closed/plugged prior to pouring the peppermint and hot water into the roof vent pipe?

When I have done them in existing structure I cut the vent in the attic and did it there. It is easier than trying to get on the roof.

Cutting the vent in the attic would be a lot easier than climbing on the roof. How do you patch the cut vent?
