In response to Re: Island Sink Vent ???

: I currently have a sink that has a vent (iron pole) that is rather
: unsightly. The plumber told me that the only way to get rid of it is to do
: an island vent under the sink or cut and move vent inside of ceiling to a
: wall. Either way, the vent will not have a straight through path and the
: plumber tells me that even though this is fine, it may mean needing to snake
: out the sink more often and possibly some release of gasses? Should I avoid
: moving this straight through vent unless I have to, or is it no big deal to
: do it? What would you recommend?

Michael, As long as you have other vents going out the roof it would be ok to install a studor auto vent. Check your local codes if you want to see if it is approved in your area. The IPC cod approves it. The UPC doesn't. But they work. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
