“Sewer Skewer” Keeps Roof Vents Open
Here’s a simple new way to keep your sewer vent from freezing over in cold weather.
  The “Sewer Skewer” prevents ice build-up in vent pipes. You simply slip the unit into the top of the pipe. It’s made of copper and consists of a 16-in. long, 3/4-in. dia. pipe with a 10-in. wide, T-shaped chamber at the top with wings that conduct heat across the top of the pipe. Small holes in the chamber keep warm air flowing through the pipe.
  “It costs nothing to operate and is maintenance-free. It’s also easy to install and can be left in all year long,” says inventor Larry Villella, Pelican Rapids, Minn. “It’ll keep ice away at temperatures as low as -20 Fahrenheit. Copper absorbs heat really well and doesn’t deteriorate due to ultraviolet light like pvc, which many other vent thaw devices are made from. The trapped warm air causes any snow on top of the chamber to melt, and since the chamber wings extend out several inches the melting snow drips clear of the pipe and onto the roof.
  “We’ve tested the Sewer Skewer for 2 years and we know that it works. That’s why we’re able to offer it with an unconditional money back guarantee. We’ve never had one returned,” says Villella.”
  One Sewer Skewer sells for $59.95 plus S&H; buy 2 units and you get free S&H.
