Re: Location of water tank breather pipe

You don't know what's living in your bilge.

Cross cantamination/cross connection prevention is basic plumbing. Water outlets/vents are supposed to terminate above flood level of the fixture or vessel being served. Funny when folks discuss boats seems the codes we all have to adhere to on land get tossed out the window.

At home you wouldn't connect a hose to your water supply & leave the end of it into your sump pit.
