Proper venting & using a "Sure-Vent"
Asked Mar 26, 2005, 11:52 AM
I've attached a PDF showing the layout I'm working with. The items in red are what I would like to add (for a new bar sink). From what I've read online and with checking with local plumbers and since I'm more than 3-1/2' from the main 2" drain line (and I'm using 1 1/2" pipe), I have to vent the horizontal line that I'm adding (which is approx 65" from the bar sink to the 2" main drain).
At my local hardware store, I purchased a "Sure-Vent" which they told me I could install in the horizontal drain that I'm adding. The sure vent must be within the 3 1/2' of the trap and it must be at least 4" above the trap or the horizontal drain.
Does this sound correct? Anyone else ever use one of these sure vents? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!!
