    Tying into existing drain line - Venting question

    At the 20:00 mark, it recommends to install a diverter valve down stream from the vent but before the black water.

    Tying into existing drain line - Venting question

    The tee would point down and the valve is right underneath. When the valve is open, gravity would send water to the grey water system, but air would still vent the toilet. Does this make sense?

    Tying into existing drain line - Venting question

    Very good point! I guess you're right, the toilet wouldn't be vented when the valve is turned towards the grey water drain. What if I plumb it like the image below. Even when the valve is open to direct water to the grey water system, air would still be able to reach the toilet drain line. Does...

    Tying into existing drain line - Venting question

    I am trying into a bath and lav drain line and installing a diverter valve to allow me to choose between sending water towards the sewer or to my grey water system.

    Standpipe height

    This might be a bit more clear, it shows all the plumbing. I need an AAV on the right side that leads to outside because it's a closed system. I just dont have much room

    Standpipe height

    the left side that is out of frame discharges into the standpipe. That side is fine. My issue is with the new leg with the 1" pvc shown in the picture. That vertical pipe leads to outside. I forgot to add a vacuum breaker / AAV. Ideally, I would remove the elbow and add a tee with the valve...

    Standpipe height

    Thanks for the input. I have a bit of an issue then. I plumbed a grey water system for my laundry, controlled by 2 valves. One leg empties into my 2" standpipe. The other leg is a 1" line which terminates outside in the landscape. I forgot to install a AAV/mechanical vent. I am very tight for...

    Standpipe height

    I know that the IPC states that the standpipe must be Not less than 18" but not greater than 42" above the trap. Does the height of the standpipe compared to the height of the washer matter? In other words, can the standpipe be lower than the top of the washer, provided it's more than 18" above...

    Opinions on globe valves?

    I was originally going to use a flow control valve to reduce GPM on my main supply line from my well pump (long story). Someone recommended that I consider a globe valve since it's adjustable. I've read a lot of bad reviews on these types of.valves, mostly about how they leak. Since I'll never...

    Why are my fittings leaking?!

    I've installed some poly pipe for some irrigation. I've doubled up the hose clamps at every fitting and tighten the bejesus out of them. They are all producing a very slow drip. What am I doing wrong? They won't tighten any more and I've push each fitting all the way in. Are there more...

    I have three 1-way light switches and one bathroom fan switch in the same 4 gang electrical box. I want to replace the regular fan switch with a timer switch. There seems to be a hot wire running from switch to switch. Do I disconnect this wire and install the new timer switch? There is a...
