In response to Re: Quick Vent - Air Admittance Valve
If you install AAV's on all the fixtures, including the ejector basin, you will create a sealed system and nothing will drain because the AAV's will not allow air to escape so water can displace it.

: I am installing a bathroom in my basement. A plumber recommended a 'quick vent'. I assume that this is an air admittance valve.
: If so, do I need one valve for the toilet, one valve for the bath, and one for the sink, or can they be tied together above the bathroom (in the joists) and run over to a storage area (4-6 feet away)?

: Can the ejector pump be tied in to one of these valves?
: Do you even recommend these valves?
: Also, how much do the vents cost?

: Thanks for the help.
: Jeff
: PS: Can you please respond to my email address (as well as msg board)?
