Re: Notched Joists


I see this a lot. Most plumbers don't care. I take it upon myself and remove the plumbing that I need to, so that I can repair their laziness and stupidity. My structure is my #1 priority!!!

Doesn't matter how large the house is or expansive the plumbing system is.

Being originally from Illinois, the system really is odd to me.

That’s what my current plumber wanted to do on the last house I built but I had my roofer put boots for 2 3” vents so he had to use them. He put everything that wasn’t getting an AAV out one vent except for one bathroom vent that went from 1-1/2” to 3” to fit the boot. No one has pride in their work anymore.

AAV's are not allowed in Illinois. They consider them a mechanical vent so they're written out of the Illinois Plumbing Code.

Vents can be tied in the attic as long as they slope to drain.

Smallest vent out the roof in Il. and In. are 3", they must enter the roof at least 12" I believe.

I use leads instead of rubber boots.

They eat the roof jacks? One hell of an immune system.

The ones I use are formed sheet lead, about 1/8" thick.

Squirrels love lead.

I always put an extra rain collar on my flashings after the plumber installs the vent. Blocks the UV from the main rubber.

Looks like the plumber took a handful of dumb pills as he was pulling up to your job site.

Love lead! And that's ok by me when I have to replace them for $350. And it takes me 20 min.

That plumber should have put the pipe thru the wood, like cut out a nice big circle. That way if the building ever shifted they could have **** water dripping on their heads
