Wanting to move a kitchen sink from a wet wall to an exterior wall, under a window. Isn't this the hope of every kitchen remodeler, to be looking out a window while standing in front of a sink?
My plumber's opinion is that my windows will not accommodate the 42" height above fixtures code requirement for venting (excerpted below).
I'm confused by this requirement, as the "kitchen sink under a window" pattern seems so common. I'm able to change the window's geometry but I'd prefer not to sacrifice the light the window provides. Are there workarounds I should know about?
18-29-905.5 Height above fixtures. A connection between a vent pipe and a vent stack or stack vent shall be made at least 6 inches (150 mm) above the flood level rim of the highest fixture served by the vent, and 42 inches (1067 mm) minimum above finished floor. Horizontal vent pipes forming branch vents, relief vents or loop vents shall be at least 6 inches (150 mm) above the flood level rim of the highest fixture served and 42 inches (1067 mm) above finished floor.
