    I need to add a toilet to an existing waste line. I am not sure if the vent I am planning is good or if the use of the y and some 45 degree elbow is ok. Could someone please check my sketch and let me know

    Link to sketch below

    Some inspectors would require that you use a combination Y-1/8 bend, or similar, in place of the san tee. Experienced plumbers would use different fittings than you show to make the connections, but yours will work.

    Tees CAN be horizontal for vent connections in some areas, AND whether a Y can be vertical or not depends on what it is being used for.

    IPC allows the use of a horizontal san tee for venting provided the vertical rise does not receive the wast form any fixtures. (it must be dry)
