If, by vent, you're referring to the exhaust leading outside, I checked that before and the air is flowing out of it pretty well when the exhaust fan is on. Is that the vent you're referring to? It might also be helpful for me to mention that I've

I've seen rough surfaces and voids on the bottom of the bowl that required dressing up to provide a good seal.

I used to do it to my kids when the 15 minute timer ran out. They got the message quick. I was so mean but they now have kids and see what I meant. By the way who pays for the hot water?? Im guessing you or this wouldn't be a concern.
