    yes, when I read further "It may also be installed outside the building when used in conjunction with the aluminium cover and polystyrene cap. Subject to being used with the insulating cap, Studor guarantees the performance of the Maxi-Vent from -40°C to +60°C, which far exceeds the requirement of EN12380 for the AI rating (which is “only” from -20°C)."

    This might well be the solution to this issue!!!
    Hurrayyy!!!

    Cheers gents!

    Right, I need to re-launch this as I'm struggling to buy the maxi -vent so while I sort this:

    Saniflo and downstairs toilet share the same waste pipe (as per photos attached) so if the current AAV is faulty, shouldn't using either toilet cause foul smell to come back in the flat?
