Nicholas Crane could probably answer this better than I can since he keeps up to date on all the building codes.

I think that they serve different purposes, and the aav is not a replacement for your traditional vent pipes, rather it is used more locally for specific purposes like an island sink or dishwasher.

I am clueless, but I learned quite a bit from the commentary.  Happy Monday. A

Depends what you have to do on remodel. In order to put in a window, you might have to get rid of that regular pipe & put in Studor. Remove a wall, etc.

 

I am sure that This Old House has a show on this.

No experience with it, but I would think it's a great option for new construction. Cut down on number of holes in roof and amount of PVC installed.

It seems to be a very clever technology, plus it's very easy to get to it, in case a repair is needed.

I'd be reluctant to cut a hole in a new roof, but tried and true works best.

Zero experience, everything is up through the roof out here.  Just easier that way I guess.

Sometimes you have to admit to being clueless and turn to those with experience and knowledge.
