Plumbus my mind is blown. Since the start of my apprenticeship, every plumber I have worked for has called the 4 banded clamps, clamp alls. And the 2 banded no hub. I worked for a few different shops, and hall guys here, all of them call the 4 banded clamp alls. Im pretty sure the foreman even call Ferguson, and order clamp alls and the heavy duty couplings show up.
The association of branded names with generic descriptions is a human habit and crosses all product lines.
In my area, 4 banded couples are called "Husky" couplings. Husky, as you know, is Anaco's brand of such.

Different piping materials have characteristics specific to them. A plumber's knowledge and experience dictate which to be used in any specific situation. Our knowledge of this and other trade related subjects is what separates us from common laborers. That said, I don't wish to denegrate common laborers. We are specialists, as are electricians and HVAC workers. We may have skills that we share with others, but it's our special knowledge that makes our daily break as we protect the health of the nation.

Of course our State doesn't allow them. Hard to figure why others still do. You can call it a possible basement shower........

Below ground level they have to be checked. They need to be above flood, but lots of times that's just not possible. I can tell you that not one time out of thousands of tubs and sinks with an AAV leaked when backed up above it. Not saying it can't happen, I've seen AAV's leak air, but not water.

I prefer revent. But cost wise for the HO who wants a remodel or needs a repair it can save them thousands!

Is the AAV not supposed to be above the flood level of the fixture it is serving. I know we did a parking garage years ago and had to get special approval to use them where they were not above the flood level.

The ones I have seen in older trailers have leaked air and have midges flying around them, That's the key, it's just a matter of time before any mechanical device fails.
