Sideventing of main stack
Posted by LarryK on June 13, 2004 at 07:40:38:
Is it code acceptable to have the main vent stack vented on a sidewall instead of through the roof? The reason I ask is that a neighbor down the road has had their roof vent sheared off two winters in a row by heavy snow load on a metal roof. When the snow breaks loose it has broken or sheared the vent. A contractor (not a plumbing contractor) "solved" the problem by side venting the main stack, eliminating the roof exit. If this is acceptable I would like to do it on the log home our son is building.
