Air Hawks, how close to ridge?

Is there a "standard" for how close to the ridge the air hawks should be placed?

How about putting a plumbing jack close to an air hawk, and standard there?

Thanks

Frank

First, what's an air hawk. I'm guessing you're referring to a turbine vent or a Lomanco can vent? The top of the vents are usually anywhere from 12-24" from the ridge. There is no specified minimum distance between vent stacks and ventilation vents. Neither should leak if properly installed.

I would use a ridge vent or covered box vent,instead of the turbine vent,they simply leak without this optional attachment that requires maintenance(emptying)found on turbine type vent;
