The government says it's okay to poison yourself in an RV, just not in your home...... makes no sense, especially since the living space in an RV is much smaller..(less air..)

In the product overview you list "push to connect". What does that mean?

HD mistake. Has male threads to ‘screw’ into female threaded fitting. Basicly just a 1.5” open ended check valve. Does work.

Is this vent necessary and can I eliminate it completely cuz it seems like driving down the road my RV stinks

Asked by: Don
The reason you're experiencing the odor is because the Inline vent has failed. There is an internal spring that controls the diaphragm that has failed. We recommend replacing the vent.

How can I remove it yo replace the cheater vent?

The previous owner had glued it in even though you only have to screw it in and I can't remove it to replace it. What can I do yo replace it.
Asked by: Lisa64
I can't phantom why someone would glue a threaded joint. I do know that a super tight PVC joint seams like its glued. Try a large pair of pump pliers or pipe wrench to loosen the thread. If that doesn't work, break out the sawzall and prepare to demo! Good luck with your project.

1-1/2 in. ABS PTC In-Line Cheater Vent is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vent for kitchen sink I had a roof vent completely clog up, so I cut the pipe running into sink and replaced it with this valve. Works great, no gass smell and sink drains better..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Installed easily. I had an existing vent in the basement which didn't seem right so I blocked it which made the stationary tub drain slowly. Tub now drains fast and no sewer smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great My sink was draining very slow, changed this out and works great now. Happy wife also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not approved for use in houses This product is approved for use in recreational vehicles and often in manufactured houses (mobile homes). It is not an air admittance valve and does not meet the requirements of typical plumbing codes.
Date published: 2013-05-22
Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not meet residential codes Fortunately I read in a plumbing book that spring loaded vents do not meet code even though they are available. they fail over time. what you need is an AAV Air Admittance Valve. I will have to return this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap, not robust. Not a real "AAV" If you need a cheater valve as an alternative to a rooftop drain waste vent, or for an island sink, don't get this one. It's just a little flap of rubber. A quality Automatic Air Vent has a gravity seal and mesh to keep out debris top and bottom. Look for products from RectorSeal or Studor, which carry certifications for this purpose. Note that pluming codes vary by location.

Just got back to our office to install one of these in an operatory sink and decided to do more reading and learned this wasn't code compliant. Returned and purchased a proper vent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for home use this is not rated for use in building plumbimg systems, it is for rv use only and the packaging does not indicate that and it is right next to the ones that are for plumbing systems so i will be returning this and getting the part rated for use in buildings.
