Sump Pump Detail
AAV on Sanitary Sump Basin
Because air admittance valves are one-way valves, they only let air in. When a sump is vented with an air admittance valve and there
is flow entering the sump, the sump will be pressurized as flow is coming into the p-trap and into the sump. This creates a sluggish
drain flow into the sump or air binding. There is a special way an air admittance valve must be piped if you intend to use an air
admittance valve on a sump pump basin.
Drain pipe sized to be no more than
half full when pump is discharging
