|In response to Re: Is a seperate vent required for a tub?|
: Thanks for the reply, Terry.
: I'm a little confused though.
: It was my understanding, along with another individual's, that, when you drain your tub out, air will enter into the overflow, hence, allowing the water in the tub to properly drain through the tub drain, P-trap, etc.
Air entering through the overflow or the drain,
In escence, the overflow allows for the "air-to-water exchange". There's still a P-trap in place to keep gas from entering up into the room.
: Then, a friend told me this morning that I should run a "T" between the drain and the Trap, and connect the "T" fitting to a seperate vent line.
: I appreciate your reply, I'm just still a little foggy with what is required.
