I'm a solar electrical installer and one of my panels is on top of a vent. The building inspector wants me to move the vent if you can please help me out to find where in the code sais that it can't be covered . The panel is 2" above the vent and the pipe stands 6" above the roof line .

Why would anyone want to impede the venting of methane and other carcinogenic and explosive fumes from the vent terminal?

There are several sections in the various plumbing codes that state not only the size of the vent terminal size to prevent hoarfrost but the location of other structures and over hangs and windows and adjacent buildings .

Go out and buy the LOCAL plumbing code in the areas you plan on working as each area has their own bits and pieces added to the codes already published.

Then contact a local plumbing contractor to make the correct modifications so you do not get a fine for doing plumbing without a license
