Comments about 20 DFU Sure-Vent Air Admittance Valve w/ 1 1/2" x 2" PVC Adapter:

I am happy that I read about these Air Admittance Valves in the past. I did not have a need for one until recently. To avoid ripping a wall apart to install a new vent for a drain I opted to use this valve and I am happy I did. The valve does exactly what it is suppose to, enough said.

the best invention I have seen in years.

Comments about 20 DFU Sure-Vent Air Admittance Valve w/ 1 1/2" x 2" PVC Adapter:

It will allow you to vent a sink in the middle of kitchen without running a vent pipe through the roof and no sewer gas can come back into the house because the vent closes and only opens when waste water is expeled. It also opens to allow quick draiage of waste water. Some one is a true genius for the invention of this wonderful product.

I used this for an island sink that was not possible to hook into the main vent line due to height restrictions in the basement. It is working great...no gurgling. Hope it lasts!

Air where you need it

By Jeff

Comments about 20 DFU Sure-Vent Air Admittance Valve w/ 1 1/2" x 2" PVC Adapter:

Kitchen sink and another 11 loccations. Reduces sink bubbling, slow draining, load noises when flushing tolites, and glubbing noises in tubs when flushing tolites. Makes up for poor new home pluming - lacking angle of drain pipes and possible too small drain pipes. In my case it works. Replaces 6 DUFs that did not doing the job.

Comments about 20 DFU Sure-Vent Air Admittance Valve w/ 1 1/2" x 2" PVC Adapter:

I did research on AAVs and the Oatey unit is the only I would consider. It is easy to install and reliable.

We are a small customer to Supply House. So, I am still always surprised when our order arrive the next day. I highly recommend this company.

Used this product in a spot where it would have been difficult to get a fresh air vent out. Works great. Especially like the rubber band that protects the vent from drywall mud etc. during constructn.

    Q:

    What does the "20 DFU" mean in the description? This is basically a vacuum breaker; correct?
    Asked on 6/15/2016 by Tuna from Denver, NC

      A:

      Yes, it is typically used when a conventional "vent" is not practical or
      possible. We see them many times under the counters in mobile homes and
      travel trailers. They may not be code for new construction in
      conventionally built homes & buildings. Check with your local building
      department if it may come into question. The catalog number may not be
      relevant to it's function or description.

      A:

      According to Oatey, "an air admittance valve's ability to breathe is measured in Drainage Fixture Units or DFUs. The higher the DFU rating on the valve, the greater amount of air that can enter the DWV system. DFU loads are assigned to plumbing fixtures dependent on the volume rate of discharge, the duration of operation and the time between operations."

    Q:

    Can I install these onto the tops of my existing sewer vent stacks? They have bad sewer smell coming out of them.
    Asked on 6/27/2015 by Rooster from AZ

    1 answer

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Your vent stacks are supposed to allow sewer gas (the bad smell) to vent
      into the atmosphere. Typically the stacks open to the air on the roof,
      where no one is affected by the smell. These remain closed until a vacuum
      is created by a drain taking water. These are not intended for the purpose
      you suggest.

    can this be used to replace the vent pit for the bathroom sink in a mobil home?

      A:

      Mobile homes and RV's are where these are used most. Many building codes
      won't allow there use in new construction in lieu of a regular vent pipe.
      Most of these need to be mounted upright, vertical.

    Q:

    Our toilet started making a deep blurp sound (go ahead and laugh). We had the home built less than 5 years ago. We had a plumber come out. He took out a part just like this vent air admittance valve and told us that was the problem and that the part was going to be $900. I see that clearly he is trying to take advantage of us based on your prices. Is it costly to install this part?
    Asked on 1/27/2015 by LucyLou from Orlando, FL

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      No, it is a pretty straight forward replacement, cut the old one off or
      unscrew it, glue or screw on a new one. I would think this should be
      covered in the cost of a service call. Looking at this I'd say that the
      plumbing wasn't properly vented when the house was built. We see these
      most often in mobile homes or other manufactured housing. Some code
      jurisdictions don't aloow them in lieu of conventional venting.

    Q:

    I have an existing drain vent going from a shower drain, in a crawl space, through a vertical wall to the roof. I am moving the wall and would prefer to not re-rout the vent. If I use this vent valve in the crawl space, will sewer gas be emitted into this closed (crawl)space? I don't want to be working in the crawlspace with sewer fumes and lowered oxygen levels.
    Asked on 11/25/2014 by James from Pekin, Il

    1 answer

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      The vent cap is used to relieve the vacuum allowing air to enter the vent
      and allow the water to go down the drain. At the same time it prevents
      sewer gas from escaping from the vent pipe. If ever you smell sewer gas,
      replace the cap. Note, not all jurisdictions allow the use of these caps
      in lieu of a vented vent.
