3) Martin Willes STILL wants to know:
Can a stack type AAV be located in the cabinet of the sink it is serving and why?

No, because the stack type AAV must be installed 6 inches above the flood level rim of the highest fixture being vented. Only individual type AAV’s may be located under a sink so long as there is a main stack vent present in the DWV system.

5) Why can’t lightning strike the same place twice?

Lightning does strike the same place twice.
Lighting tends to strike the highest and pointiest object, because it is an electrical current being attracted to the easiest path.
If your church steeple is on a hill, it is going to be struck many times.
The Empire State Building in New York City gets struck by lightning 100 times a year

Is there another kind of AAV that can be installed there? I seem to remember a “4 inches above branch drain” part. What am I misunderstanding?

Isn’t there some kind of check valve in there?
