    Thanks for the explanations. It was my local plumber who originally was going to install this AAV. I think I will try again to find a master plumber to come out and give me another venting option....

    All I came here for was an explanation.

    What I got was a bunch of guys that wouldn't even take the time to look at something before dismissing it outright. Even when presented with evidence that...

    Oh really? Then why does the AAV hiss after the tank has been emptied? Is that my imagination?

    According to their manual, you do need at least one atmospheric vent in the line (which I do have). But I object to the notion that a design is "wrong" if it doesn't meet "local code". Under the IRC...

    With the vent completely sealed by wastewater backup, the pump box would become air locked (as redwood spoke of earlier), and unable to either suck water in or push water out. I guess technically,...
