During a recent kitchen refurb a washing machine was plumbed
During a recent kitchen refurb a washing machine was plumbed into a disused soil pipe through a w/mc trap. The washing machine is the only thing discharging into the soil pipe. The soil pipe served an upstairs ensuite which had been removed previously, the soil pipe had an AAV installed in the loft. The soil pipe drains into a below-ground manhole into which the discharge from other soil pipes meet. To create space the soil pipe was cut and sealed above the point where the washing machine discharge joined it, consequently isolating the AAV from the pipe which is now unvented. Sewage smells are now coming from the back of the washing machine somewhere between the soil pipe and where the washing machine discharge hose leaves the machine. Am I right in believing the lack of an AAV is likely to allow siphoning of the trap downstream of the washing machine allowing foul smells through?

Do i run water supply from bathroom pipes which is shorter
Do i run water supply from bathroom pipes which is shorter run to my new kitchen sink or do i need to run it from the mains as it enters my house which is located in the old kitchen which is now a living room .So basically the kitchen was originally at the front of the house and the mains stopcork was under the sink . Now we are relocating the kitchen to the back , we have a choice of either running the pipes back from the original kitchen which is 12 meter away or I can run it from a toilet which was in the middle of the 2 room and we have now removed the toilet - this run is shorter at 5 meters . My builder is saying because u have a system boiler (mega Flo) and no tank in the loft , it doesn't matter where u take the connections from as its all drinking water .My concern is that the pipes in the middle (previous toilet) is coming down from the 2 bathrooms upstairs ( town house) and I will lose pressure and Flo maybe and also it's in copper and some people say best to not drink from a long run of copper pipe and keep copper run as short as possible .I'm in dialema and want to know what shall I do . I have relocated the stop cork in the hallway and also can u tell me previous stop cork had EARTHING wire 10mm - do I need to extend that EARTHING again .So really pressure and Flo is of concern and the fact the pipes have gone up and down from 2 bathrooms and in copper . Is this water safe if i take it from previous toilet .Also I'm connecting a saniflo system - which pipe size do I use and do i need to vent it and are they reliable .
