Saniflo System

I am installing a saniflo saniplus system in my basement. The guy from saniflo said I can vent this out of the side of my house. That seems incorrect. Any advice would help. Thanks

Saniflo System

Yes, if it's easier and less expensive, you can vent plumbing through a wall, but you need to carry the vent pipe on up to the eave or roof, which is probably what he really meant.

Saniflo System

I agree with Mike. It is still a vent line and needs to end above the house. If not, you would soon be smelling sew gas coming in through the windows and doors.
If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
