venting to stink pipe

Hi everyone,

 

Have searched through alot of old threads but still not finding what I need to know.

 

I am currently setting a grow in my loft space. My proposed plan for extraction is to pull through the CF with TD silent 150 and then run that to a tee close to the top of my houses soil stack (it runs through loft so very easy to do).

 

I have a vague understanding of how soil stacks work. What I don't know is if air can escape from the top of the stack or if there is some sort of valve at the top that only allows air in.

 

 

 

T.I.A

Iirc soil stacks are open at the top so it can release gases unless they're fitted with a Air Admittance Valve.

 

If you can see the top you should be able to see if ones fitted.

Its got to work and shouldnt impede the flow of air up the stench pipe from your toilet,

just be aware on a cold day as the  hot air could create steam on the way out and could look sus
