I need your help. For unknown reasons I cannot log in the plumbing forum. I an dealing with a General inspector from the city in several items related to electrical upgrades, gas upgrades and a situation with a vent stack. as this inspector is a "general" he is not well versed in specifics. AND, I need your help in "wording" with him (you know that my English sucks)
I questioned an electrical and gas upgradeds made from someone else that was approved by this inspector, I questioned him and the city didn't have another alternative that backtrack and redo the entire situation.
So, I questioned a vent stack that is located between 2 mobile homes. That vent stack is too short and residents of those 2 mobile homes, specially in summer, cannot open their bedroom windows and those gases leak into ... (sewer gases can be hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, methane, esters, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides)
I know that you don't deal with plumbing, but please help me with the wording as this inspector is disappointed with me as he had to backtracked in the gas and electric.
He is stating that this sewer stack is "grandfathered" as it is in this way for the last 20 years. I don't find the wording to tell him that "ANY grandfathered hazards has to be corrected" and that stack (the black pipe in the photo) needs to be raised at least 2', see how close is to the bedroom windows. It is ok if this stack is on the top of the home but not on the side.
Can you help with the wording?
