air admittance valve
Air admittance valves should not be used on discharge stacks connecting to a drain which has an intercepting trap or to drains which are subject to surcharging as it could result in the trap seal loss of appliances. There should only be a limited number of dwellings within the local vicinity fitted with these valves thus ensuring a good air circulation within the drain.
