Personally I don't agree with that type of check. Canplas or similar. Looks like a pit check, but I don't know everything.

Since you can't get the AAV above flood level of the other fixtures, wouldn't it make more sense to put the check valve after it?

Check downstream of the vent. Now if there's a high wall main line connected to a city sewer, in a basement, if the laundry stack is above ground level it must be vented but not checked.

Lots of homes around here were on septic at one time and converted to city. What a PITA when you have to cable a high wall clean out 5' up going out the back of the house wrapping around one side. A house that is 30' from the city sewer can be 150' from the clean out. You know the dangers of how much cable between machine and clean out... imagin six foot and kicking the auto feed with your foot. I've even had to clean a trailer sewer laying on my back guiding the cable with both hands and my boots shouting commands to the maintenance guy "Forward! Neutral! Reverse! Let off the peddle, stop the drum!" No more! Not worth it.

The cast is not an up sell. To me and my comppany it is the only sell. Installation and service friendly. Extream longevity service life. Every fixture has a VTR or AAV when allowed or stack vented when allowed or wet vented when allowed or horizontial wet vented when allowed. As some one mention this is a recipe a retro fit. If walls on the 2nd floor are open then a VTR or fixture vents would be installed on every fixture.

Nothing against your work jnohs, you are installing as per code. The changes that have taken place in the code in the last 25 years, that have made allowable what was once a violation, has made it easier in certain respects to accomplish the job, without sacrificing the safety factors. In other respects the changes have made it easier to accomplish the job, without having the knowledge and skill that was once needed to be a Master Plumber.

Again, kudos to you for continuing to post here after the difficult first few posts. We all love discussing plumbing and without content there is nothing to discuss. Many have never returned after code or quality arguments.

And I use pvc/ci adapters every time I connect the 2 different pipes.

Why not regular no hub bands? I'm curious why the heavy duty ones everywhere.. I like seeing it, as they are much stronger, but cost wise, it's higher on the customer.
We only use the heavy duty bands on storm, and sometimes to transition.

I only use them when speced out, or if there extras in the shop when I am doing no hub. Most of our local engineers only spec them out on government and hospital work. Very pricey, would never put in a house. Probably would never put no hub in a house.
