In response to Re: New kitchen vent connecting to existing vent system
: Thanks Deb, I was afraid of that. I'll have to re-think the sink and vent locations.

: : : 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).

You may want to call a plumber for a consultation and have them look at your situation. Sometimes they can come up with something that will work. It is really hard to advise remotely when we cannot see your situation. It is possible sometimes to be creative and still meet code ;-)
