W.A. Russell vent

Ran into 2 of these today. The model says 6M - VACUUM. Don't know if they still operate as vacuum vents or not, but planning to replace both, if the customer OK's it.

Anyone have any info on these vents?

    Also known as "WARCO"

    and none of the vents I've seen from this company will pass much air. Replace them with properly sized ones.

    Thanks Frank!

    Priced out one #75 for one main, two for the other. Just waiting for the OK from the customer.

    I looked up this vent on Gill and Pajek's sheet, but no mention. I do see the Warco's, but with a different number. I see that neither move very much, and figured, being a vacuum vent, it should be changed anyway.

    Try gorton#2 as they are cheaper and more capacious than Hoffman.--nbc

    I know

    But the local supply house doesn't carry them, they have to be ordered by phone. And since I don't handle ordering parts it won't happen. Just have to go with 2 -#75's instead of one #2.

    Oh well.
