PLUMBWORKER, Guess It's obvious! These Boys never Met Dan Shea District 5 S.F. ,
BLESS HIS SOUL
There have been many good suggestions and I have not decided yet until I look for a trap that will allow me to clean the pipe. I have decided to go through to the attic and out the side wall becuase the attic above the garrage is wood on the side and will be a lot easier to do.
The only thing nobody has mentiones is moving. Can't do that so will have to fix it. Will the blower move more lint out?
Thanks to all who have been giving me advice. Being an old computer maint. man my plumbing has been to change faucets and washers. Had to unstop the line from the sink to the main trunk going out last night.
Not sure which is better without seeing the project. Seems like an attic run would be more difficult to maintain. I wouldn't go through the roof because.......THAT"S ANOTHER HOLE IN THE ROOF. :)
Mark, This is how it works. He comes up with some ideas that arn't in code, or amendments.
I am not in a position to battle with this. I'm sure You have ability to go there. I just want the job to get signed off. Other insps. have told Me , "If Dan past Your work, You'll never have problems with the rest of Us. I choose My battles carefully. He's a nice man and We get along. When Itell the other Insp. what He had Me do ,They shake their heads. By the way ,My SF Arct. said Yesterday. Busted for no permit in SF is now 9 times the permit fee!
Thats' enough to keep us all honest!
The attic above the garrage is very easy to get to and is just above the exit for the pipe from the laundry room. I will come out of the wall of the laundry room, go up to the attic and then it is a straight run to the west wall of the attic. There is also a vent that I might use also on the west wall but that would mean another two angled pipes where going through the wall is a straight shot. I am looking into the aux fan if you think it would make it better.
They go through the roof all the time in Texas, and it don't work too well.
