It's awesome that the manufacturer took the time to respond. Thanks for posting it.

comment What is a humane, safe and clean way to dispose of a live mouse caught in a glue trap?
@ppumkin How is it not humane? The mouse is suffering, stuck to a sticky trap, where it will eventually die due to dehydration. Dying of dehydration is a long agonizing process, whereas stomping the poor bugger is quick.

comment Why did my circuit blow after replacing a switch?
How did you connect the newer switch? Was it installed properly? Is there a grounding conductor in the circuit, or was the grounding terminal on the switch left disconnected?

comment How do you drain a garbage disposal?
AAVs are not guaranteed to be water tight, which is why they are not approved in all locations. However, installing them above the overflow of the sink, insures that the sink will overflow before water starts spewing from the AAV (which may be under the sink or in the wall).

comment How do you drain a garbage disposal?
@iamkrillin No. An AAV has a flap that lets air in, but not out. When the air pressure inside the plumbing is low enough, the higher pressure air outside pushes the flap open and enters the pipe. Once pressure equalizes, the flap closes.

Two 45s would be better than two 90s. A sanitary tee would also be better than a straight tee, but I'm not sure they make sanitary tee tailpieces.

The AAV should be above the overflow level of the sink, which in most kitchen sink installs would be above the rim of the sink.

comment How do I wire this ceiling fan?
Yes, you can sleep peacefully. Just don't touch any metal parts on the fan if there's a ground fault. The grounding conductor is only there as a safety measure. If nothing goes wrong, it should never be used.
