54. Individual vent is the most practical vent of trap which effectively prevents the minus or plus pressure of every fixture trap. 55.No vent should be less than 38mm (1 ½”) diameter except for a 32mm (1 ¼”) waste. 56.All branch vent pipes should be free from drops or sags and should be so graded and connected so as to drip back the soil or waste pipe by gravity. 57. Circuit or Loop vent is employed where two or more fixture traps are installed on a horizontal soil or waste branch, generally reduces the cost of plumbing installation. 58. Main vent – the principal artery of the venting system to which vent branches are connected. 59. Individual vent – is a pipe installed vents a fixture trap and which connects with the vent system above the fixture, serve or terminate in the open air 60. Unit vent – an arrangement of venting or installed that one vent pipe will serve two trap. 61. Circuit or Loop vent – a group vent pipe which starts in front of the extreme fixture connection on a horizontal branch or connects to the vent stack. 62. Yoke vent – a pipe connecting upward from a soil or waste stack below the floor and below horizontal connection to an adjacent vent stack at a point above the floor and higher than highest spill level of fixtures for preventing pressure changes in the stack.
