A: Depending on how the system is piped will determine if an AAV would work or not. It can be used for that application though.
A: Our AAV's meet NSF standard 14. whether our AAV's are approved in your area or not would be determined by the local municipality. Please contact email@example.com for a copy of the product submittal.
A: Possibly, though I'd first do a bit of pipe cleaning. I found that having used a disposal over years allowed slimy sediment to build on the pupe walls. The disposal pushed the water through, but wwithout it, the buildup slowed the drain. HD carries good drain gunk dissolvers. I'd try them first for a week or so.
A: If there is no main vent on the system at all an AAV will not work properly. Also positive pressure build up will cause the AAV to remain shut.
A: This device only allows air to be drawn into a tank or plumbing system. It doesn’t relieve pressure. Best bet is to talk to your RV retailer for the best solution
A: I'm not sure if this is the proper device for your application, but it should function fine as a vent over your tank without building up pressure as it sits normally in a passive position. Even though it functions very well in the presence of liquid, it takes a fair amount of inch/pounds of air pressure to make it close. If you try to breath through one, you'll see what I mean. Truth be told, this actually doesn't close very well for sewer gas only, but as you move the RV around (especially on a warm day) the gases may become more pronounced. If installing it doesn't require any modification to your plumbing, I'd try it out. If modification is necessary, I might suggest checking with an RV specialist in your area to see if they offer something specific to your application.
A: My AAVs are under the sinks in my 5th wheel. I see this one is the replacement they call for.. I would think this should work. The white part is the AAV the manufacture suggests for replacement
