  • Vent pipe filters

    Service call in a large kitchen. Went on the roof and found a Studor filter the size of a hockey puck. Thing must have been ten plus years old. The large dish washing station near the toliet was venting though the stool. Would a pluged vent pipe cause water to bunce in the stool so bad it over flows? I jetted the line to the trap and down from the vent. The lines seemed clean. Do these filters work? and what happen ten years after there 2 year life span.

    Have to confess that's a new one on me. Never ran into one. Just read up on them. Can't even think of a reason right now for their existence.

    So much to learn.

            A studor is used in place of vtr for convience and cheaper cost. It should not be placed on top of the vent. You'll see them most often in island sinks. They work until the sink backs up to the studor then you need to replace it.
            Buy cheap, buy twice.

              Studor Filter. Not vent. I'm assuming though 'cause no picture.
