The Sovent is an engineered combination drainage and vent system. The Sovent system consist of four parts:

  • Drain, waste and vent stack.
  • Sovent aerator fitting at each floor level.
  • Drain, waste and vent horizontal branches.
  • Sovent deaerator fitting at the base of the stack. 

For designing the Sovent system the following procedure should be followed:

  • Prepare a layout drawing.
  • Determine the loading on each section of pipe.
  • Size the stack.
  • Size the branches
  • Select the fittings above the building drain.
  • Design the connections to the building drain.
  • Size the building drain.
