    I am attaching a crude drawing. I have a first floor laundry room area with toilet, shower that was an addition to the house (before I moved in).

    When we flush the toilet, we sometimes get a gurgle in the washer drain. Also when the washer drains we sometimes get odors.

    I think it’s a ventilation problem. The original main line (going to kitchen and upstairs bathroom) has a main vent stack on the roof.

    I am wondering if I could put an Air Admittance Valve on the Laundry room drain lines (, if so then what size and where is the best place?

    I can get under the floor and access most of the pipes. I can get to the toilet drain and to the drain line connecting the sink and washer.
    The toilet drain is 3”, and the washer, sink, shower is 1/12”.
    Thank you
