comment How can I drill through concrete blocks to allow drainage from my backyard?
@DMoore There's only dirty in the backyard if you have a privacy fence, otherwise the neighbors call the cops. This is not the place for those types of pictures.

comment How should I center a light fixture when there's a vent stack in the way?
I know in HVAC bends can easily lead to restricted air flow, so I was just curious if the same was true here. Thanks @auujay for the code reference.

Are there any restrictions with the number of bends in a vent, or the overall length of the vent? Are there any concerns; such as inadequate air flow, with a modification like this to the vent system? I'm no fluid dynamics expert, but surely there has to be some difference between a straight pipe and a bent one.

"Since the circuit already has the maximum number of fixtures on it". What is the maximum number of fixtures? What if you change from 1 bulb fixture to 3 bulb fixture? What if you plug in an extension cord with multiple receptacles?

You want to put the box next to the pipe, or in front of the pipe? Is there enough depth from the outer face of the drywall, to the pipe, to fit the box?

You could try fishing the plunger out with a coat hanger, or a scrap piece of solid core electrical wire.
