In response to Re: venting a vessel sink in a kitchen island
The vent has to be as high as possible, which means it can rise against the bottom of the counter. But that drain and vent must be installed properly.

: We are doing a remodel in the kitchen and have come up against a problem. We are adding an island made of cabinets and plan to install a vessel sink that will sit on the top like a big stainless salad bowl. On each end of the island there are 12 inch wide and 36 inch high bookshelves that will be capped with granite. the cabinets between the bookshelves are lowered to 27 inches to accomodate my short frame. We have allowed about 3 inches between bookshelves and cabinets for plumbing works. The problem is this, do the stacked vents for the plumbing need to be installed higher than the sink? There is no place to run the pipes higher than the sink because the top of the sink will be almost level with the top of the bookshelves. Any suggestions will be helpful, thanks!
