Main Air Vents

HenryTHenryT Member Posts: 128
I am planning to vent my mains and have 1 question before making the purchase on the vents.

I have a finished basement with main hidden above dropped ceilings. I have located the end of main and want to vent it with a bigger vent. However, due to height clearance area I may not be able to add a Gorton #2. I was looking a Pex Supply and saw a Hoffman 75.

Are these comparable to Gorton? I know the overwhelming choic would be Gorton due to its venting capacity, but am I sacrificing a lot with a Hoffman 75?

What if I use the menorah approach and attached 2-3 of these Hoffmans?

Any inputs would be much apprecaited and thanks in advance.

Wishing Dan and everyone of you wall addicts a very prosperous new year!
