Loop Vent Video

Hi, I'm Tim Carter and I want to talk a little about loop vents. What a loop vent is a plumbing vent and drain system that would be used in a kitchen island, or where a typical plumbing fixture isn't up against a wall so that the vent can't be run to the roof.

In those cases, you have to install a loop vent. The important part of the loop vent is the way it works and gets connected back to the plumbing system and how it gets air. You need to understand that, as the is the trouble. But you can install a loop vent like this that will meet code and work perfectly.

Some plumbers will tell you to forgot loop vents and just install a mechanical vent. However, any thing mechanical will eventually malfunction. That is a problem. A loop vent system uses gravity, physics and Mother Nature to work. So it won't malfunction.
