18398Can a low heel elbow be used to vent a toilet like in the top picture? Some say yes some no. What do you think?
The picture is incomplete, but extrapolating from what shows, the answer is no, because debris can backflow into it and there is nothing to "wash" the debris out. A high heel would have the same prohibition.

It is specifically prohibited in our code.

Thank you for the reply. I appreciate how you explain the reasons why as it makes sense and not just a yes or no. Thank you again.
