In response to Re: New kitchen vent connecting to existing vent system
: I'm planning a kitchen remodel that will move the kitchen sink to a different wall and have what I think may be a problem. I would like to bring the sink vent up an existing wall then over the ceiling to connect to the existing 2 inch PVC vent system where the sink originally was vented.

: My question / potential problem is that the existing vent pipe will end up six (6) inches lower than the height of the vent pipe from the sink. Is this a problem? I hope the "drawing" below may make the question clearer.

The vent cannot go down. Code requires that it run flat or be graded back to the fixture (the best option).
