    We want to run a vent for the toilet in the plumbing chase and out at the top. This plumbing chase is a 6 inches exterior furred wall. Will this comply with the California Code? What is the distance requirement of the vent pipe from the top of the wall surface?

    We are looking into the Studor Maxi-Vent and heard that this product can by-pass some of the code requirements. Does any one know about this product?

    IAPMO & ICC listed but IAPMO will not put it in code, I've call IAPMO about this.
    AHJ might allow in outdoor area BBQ sink but not within building.
