    Default SaniFlo System Venting Question

    I am installing a Saniflo System and wondering if I can install a loop vent/island vent for the pump as tying into the existing venting is not possible. My other option is to vent thru the side of the house which I would like to avoid. Has anyone installed this using this application? Thanks

    The requirements for a saniflow system are no different than those for a sewage basin or sink pump-- to allow both positive and negative pressures to be vented. It must have a proper vent, and a proper vent must terminate above the deck of the roof.

    There is always a way to do it correctly, but it is seldom the easiest way.
