    Hi all,

    My loft conversion coming to an end finally. Just after some advise regarding the soil Vent. My original vent was on a flat roof extension of the house, which has now been roofed over and made into a room. The vent pipe was removed and had a toilet connected to it(loft shower room) but the vent wasn't taken outside before they tiled.

    My builder has said its not an issue, they will take the vent from a bathroom on the floor below, through the wall and up. My question is, will this be fine? I always thought the vent should be at the top of the drainage system.

    Slightly worried now

    As long as you have an open vent somewhere on the system, it should be ok. If you start having problems, then get the builder back to alter things.
