comment How many vent stacks should a house have?
I believe there is such a valve under the sink. It's not very efficient -- grey water backs up into the dishwasher when the sink gets too full. Looping the dishwasher hose does not help.

comment What could cause an under-sink reverse osmosis filter to have low pressure?
OH! Wow. That explains a lot. Okay, I depressurized it down to below what my bike pump could measure (<10Lbs). Was still hissing, but only a little bit. It looks like there's already flow through the filter faucet. I'll try again in the morning.

Yes. Replaced the membrane along with the filters.

comment How many vent stacks should a house have?
It turned out that roofers apparently cut off one of the vents in the wall just beneath the attic floor. It took forever to find and we had to tear out a closet wall to fix it. The kitchen sink has no vent at all, so dirty water backs up into the dishwasher a lot. Running the disposal helps.

The faint line would be from where the previous owner didn't use the right color of paint. (Did you look at the picture?)

comment Why do the oven and burners work but the pilot light won't ignite?
@BMitch, they had also turned off the main valve for the oven/stove. There was no reason to turn off the pilot valves.

Could this be the former location of a stack pipe? There's a faint line running up the wall, and it's about three feet from the kitchen sink. imgur.com/MLWqe
