    Re: SoVent...

    I think I brought this up last time, snaking or cleaning the line through that fitting looks like it would be entertaining.

    I see where it could be very handy though.

      No gloat here. I rememberer reading about Sovents, but couldn't remember what state it pertained to. so I looked it up in my most recent Mass code book.
      You are spot on on this.
      "Special-Permission must be sought and granted by the Board pursuant to 248 CMR 3.04 before installation of such system."
      That change means the board no longer approves of Sovents for general use. With a six month + wait for approval, few if any will be installed.
      Forgive me, I'm still waiting for the code updates I paid the commonwealth for 20+ years ago

        I've always thought that they should change the name to the Massachusetts State Plumbing Circus. It would help make sense of the entity.

          I'm beginning to suspect your a MA escapee, one of those Fla license plates I sometimes see on 128 in the summertime, if so...please do me a favor...go faster than 50 if your in the left lane! (just kidding, couldn't resist playing into the steriotype)

          Well...we could just switch to IPC...the International Plumbing Circus...or UPC...Uppity Plumbing Code (courtesy of PC there)

              It's not that were uppity it's that we've worked very hard to achieve perfection.

                Yeah, thats what plumbers here say when out of state guys grumble about our code.
                I seriously wish we could all just get on the same page.
                Would be awsome to be able to cross state lines to work, or be able to chat code with you guys and be on the same page.
                There are differences in code that are justified, such as climate conditions, water conditions, Earthquake conditions & smog (lo-nox) for you guys...but overall it seems like some of the things that differ really shouldn't.

                    Nah, it's all good...just venting my frustration (how unusual for me) over so many conversations here that I can't relate to.
