In response to Re: Venting Sink without Adjoining Vertical Wall
: I have a "U" shaped kitchen that my wife wants to update/change. One of the changes invovles cutting one wall (non-load bearing) down to counter height so she can look into the famaily room from the kitchen.

: One problem - the vent stack for the sink currently passes up through this wall.

: If I chop the wall in half - where does the vent stack go? The sink sits 5' from the nearest vertical full height wall - do I just run a horizontal vent pipe throught he back of the base cabinets to the other wall...or treat the sink like an island and do the "up and over" vent design before I run to the vertical wall.

: Looking for ideas.......Thanks.

I had the same deal a few years back. I used a 'studor' valve and have had no problems with it. Just make sure it is exposed so you can replace it easily.
