I’d posted this question in the Drains and Sewerage forum, but got no replies – so I figured I post it here as well.
I’d like to install a laundry sink in my basement. Access to the drain line (will need to pump up 5 feet or so) and water supply lines are no problem, but I don’t have access to a vent line. I’d seen something I think is called a “loop vent” that is sometimes used in kitchen islands with a sink where there isn’t access to a vent stack. Can the same kind of thing be used in my situation? Or do I need to somehow get access to a traditional vent line (in which case I don’t think I’ll be installing the sink…) Thanks for any advice you can offer.
The loop vent will work but you have to have 5′ between openning. Check with your local code and see if the allow them, it would be better to install a reg. vent, If you want picture of loop vent look in search are e-mail me and I will send you a pic. of one.
