I need to use 2 of these on my power shower hot and cold supply pipes
because a potential air trap exists due to me having to go over joists and
back down again.
Because these air vents will be fitted in my loft does anyone have
experience of these becoming stuck and releasing water as well with the
ensuing damage that will result?
There does not appear to be a fitting to extend the air vent port to a
remote safe location where water being emitted will not cause problems.
Most types have a screw down cover to turn them off. You just open them up
when you get an airlock to clear it. I probably wouldn't be inclined to fit
an automatic air vent and leave it open, but I bet others would be.
