|In response to Horizontal vent pipes okay?|
This is what Bob Vila has to say. Should I believe him? I could probably get 1/4" slope per foot instead of straight horizontal (it's only an 18" run if that).
"Unlike drainpipes, vent pipes can run horizontally since gas-air pressure is drawn upward by the lower atmospheric pressure outside the house."
: Can I have a flat section between where the takeoff starts and where it goes vertical?
: So in other words off the takeoff install a 45 and then about an 18" flat section to another 45 heading upwards. Did that make sense?
: If not I have other options just not as clean.
