BCAB #1500 - Venting of Sewage Sump, Sentence 220.127.116.11.(2)
January 18, 2000
Re: Venting of Sewage Sump, Sentence 18.104.22.168.(2)
This appeal involves a sewage sump located outside a single family dwelling.
Reason for Appeal
Sentence 22.214.171.124.(2) requires a sewage sump to be vented.
The appellant contends that a sewage sump located outside the building does not require a vent.
Building Official's Position
The building/plumbing official maintains that a vent is required in conformance with Sentence 126.96.36.199.(2).
Appeal Board Decision #1500
It is the determination of the Board that a sewage sump, whether inside or outside the building, must be vented as required by Sentence 188.8.131.52.(2). The appellant also asked whether it makes any difference if the sump is fibreglass or concrete but the Board could not see the relevance of this question to the subject of venting.
