    Re: aggreate vent rule

    Scout's Honor
    We had an inspector out here who was becoming Big Headed.Thank goodness he had a problem innapropriately offering extra inspection services to a couple of single moms,"I'll Keep an eye on your job" turned into showing up unannounced after hours.I don't know where he went.
    Maybe the same place the catholicic church sent theirs.

      and the scary part is, our inspectors don't even understand how to determine vent pipe sizing, or if a fixture is properly vented, if they see 1 vent half the diameter of the main, the vents pass.

      No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

              Here's a beauty. He's commenting on a walk in custom shower rough. "I don't like the shower riser! Me, " can You explain the code violation? " " No way to dump water sitting in there". " May cause Legionnaires Disease" He passed it.

                So is this his way of testing the water as far as one's knowledge.

                Sounds like a fun guy.

                  Re: aggreate vent rule

                  I recently had an inspector turn me down on a laundry tub install in a basement as part of a remodel. Per code it's required to have a backwater valve on the drain, but in reality any back-flow from the sewer would come up through the existing floor drain, or shower pan, or toilet flange...the backwater valve will never serve any purpose until there's two feet of sewage in that basement. I tried to explain this as politely as possible, but he just looked at my blankly. I put in the valve.

                      Not exactly.

                      Per 2007 CPC 904.1

                      "each connection to a public sewer... shall be vented by means of one or more vent pipes, the aggregate cross-section area of which shall not be less than that of the largest required building sewer, as determined from Table 7-5."

                      In other words, even if you run a 4" lateral to the city connection, if you have less than 4 wc's (or 35 dfu's), you only need the aggregate of a 3" vent.

                          Of course the code is assuming you are installing your drains per Table 7-5 and I doubt you would find an inspector who would let you have 3" out the roof with 4" out the footing.

                            If I know the wording, how can he refuse me. Besides, most of the field inspectors know that I know their bosses. I've done it, but to be honest, I rarely work on anything less than four baths.

                            "the code is assuming you are installing your drains per Table 7-5".
                            Since I'm not a PE, what other table would I use?
