Main Vents

raemac Member Posts: 14
I just replaced the vent rites with the Gorton #2's on the mains.  This is a new one pipe system. Should I leave at the end of the main ( see picture ) or do the menorah set up?  If it is not 6 inches above the main, is it ok?

    Probably ok

    It does not look like you have much vertical height, if you are still nervous just make that horizontal run 12 - 16" long but make sure it's slope allows water to flow back towards the return. Those two 90 degree elbows should stop any slugs of water so I think you will be ok unless you need more than 1 Gorton #2, then you would need the menora setup.
