Can a 3inch plumbing vent be run in a 2x4 wall?
Yes, but only pipe, fittings too big in diameter where they glue together to fit in 2X4 wall.

Strange question I must admit, "vents" are based on the fixture units connected to it and the developed length. . The local codes will also have some input on proper vent s…izing as certain areas do require a 4" vent terminal to be 4" diameter to prevent hoar frost and then the Fresh air inlet part of the "Plumbing vent" system would be half the diameter of the building house drain but in no case less then 3" which ever is larger
\n. \n Answer \n. \nYou should not have to clean a vent on the roof. unless you are trying to clean the waste line to the fixture below. Then you would send plumbing rod…s through the vent on the roof.
Normally I would use a water Jetter 1,250 PSI -2,200 PSI and a flow rate around 2 gpm-- just enough volume to flush away the debris and enough pressure to scour the lines to r…emove built up scale deposits.
OF COURSE BUT they should be of non scaling materials and be pitched slightly away from the fixtures being served so any condensation will flow back towards the fixture drain …and allowing for hot air to rise up to the vent terminal
Plumbing vent pipe is installed through a cathedral ceiling andmetal roof surface there is no easy access into the roof cavity. Inan attic after cut off the elbow whose female… end contained theremains of the ABS pipe, glued on a short extension and new elbowin the attic, and glued a new plumbing vent rooftop riser into thenew elbow.

The highest 4 inch pipe should have a vent on it, or directly above a toilet junction. Above the flood level rim of the fixture it is servicing IT does not mean the toilet
\nYes as long as the angle at which the pipe exits the wall and goes to the outside does not exceed 45 degrees.
Doing it yourself?. Usually have to open the wall up for access to the studs and by this removall of the sheet rock covering either in part or all of it.. Any pipes/tubing m…ust be drilled through the center of each stud it passes through, choices are to use copper or new flex compression tubing.. Always shut the water off before the work commences, consult a plumbing professional before attempting to start any job you are unfamiliar with.
One that vents one fixture
By removing foul sewer fumes and venting them to the outside air nomally through the vent terminal knowing warm air rises
Water Jetting works best
Yes a vent pipe can be painted AFTER it has passed inspections and some localities want the piping labeled "Vent"
Yes BUT not an outside wall
Provide air flow to or from drainage system and to protect trap seals from siphonage and backpressure.
Not in new construction building, best way to find out is to call plumbing inspector to the job site and ask him. An inspector has a right to do an exception to the code, if t…here is a very good reason.
Yes. The toilet HAS to be wet vented within FIVE feet with the pipes from the sink and/or tub/shower.
Of course as long as the piping and electrical lines are insulated and will not cause an electrolytic action
