... the homeowner said that the town code inspector ok'd it. I'm not familiar with this type of venting. Any thoughts?

Bill,


it is a “studer” type vent----lets air in as the water drains----now accepted in many jurisdictions—especially in hard to vent situations (remodels, kitchen islands etc)

Thanks Charles - you hit it on the head. It was a kitchen re-model. They had another HI previously (non-Nachi obviously icon_lol.gif) and he wrote it up as improper. I remembered reading about this type of vent but have never actually seen one.

Yep, it’s an air admittance valve. IRC says to make certain the cabinet containing the vent must be ventilated. (irc3114.5)

Never heard it called a st. . . st. . . studer vent. AAV is what I call them. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

Studor is not a type, its a brand name.


Air Admittance Valve is the type.

Studor, Durgo, Sure-Vent, etc are just brand names.

I've always heard and used the technical term "flapper" because of the sound they make when working. ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)
