    Applying IPC 2012 Section 917 - Single Stack Vent

    Kentucky Residential Plumbing System - Which is better?

    Which of the three options is best in a Kentucky residential DWV system? I like Option D because it doesn't go into the headspace of the basement so bad. This is to fix a system that was done in 1948, I am stuck with where the vent pipes stub out so I am working towards them.

    Our late 1940s laundry sink in the basement has a 1-1/2 inch drain pipe that runs about 8' and then drops vertically into the concrete floor; below the floor surface the sink drain pipe connects to the 4-inch main waste stack. Is that enough venting to prevent a siphoning effect empting water...
