    Re: vent for toilet

    They are called Air Admittance Valves. You can put one in a wall but cover it with a grill so it can breathe and be accessed if needed (required). But someone was also right stating IPC doesn't care how far away a vent is for a toilet. You can vent two bathroom groups on one 1.5" vent pipe for IPC.
    What code are you under in GA? IPC, UPC??? Do you know? GPC Haha or maybe RNPC?

          First, you should really check your local code. Some place allow the Studor air admittance valve, and some do not. Besides the issue of eventual mechanical failure, there is another point: They relieve negative pressure on the drain, but do not relieve positive pressure, which can also occur.

          Will it work? Sure.
          Is it legal? You have to find out.
          Will it have problems? God only knows.

            MN allowed the Studor vent for *one day* and promptly banned it's use for good reason.
            Do it how ever you wish,and good luck.

                  im no plumber but why not use the vewnt stubbed out in the wall. i know im hardheaded, but seriously as a plumber or foot doctor, i see no difference if you vent it in a wall or 1000 feet above the house. a vent by definition is to let air in right? no house at least my old house is so tight it wont let the toilet flush. am i missing something big? i admit i am a dummy! lol
                  Really?

                    Most lavs are vented in 1-1/2" unles increased to larger size to accommodate another fixtures added requirements.

                    Water closets require a two inch vent.

                    The maximum distance for 3" from the vent to water closet will be no longer than 6 feet(UPC).This includes the riser on the trap arm.So if the toilet is wet vented underneath the tub you could loose another two feet on your trap arm distance dropping you down to four.

                    And people want to know why their toilet won't flush properly

                      Yea, but youse guys have a code that makes sense

                      Actually though, because a toilet is a s trapped, full siphoning fixture it get's it's vent from the bowl itself and any further venting makes no difference, which is why the IPC has decided that vent to bowl distance is unlimited.
