    The last set of pictures are too small for me to see.
    You can have 800 pixels or smaller.

    The washer and tub need 2" for the waste portion and 1.5" for the vents
    The tub can use a 1.5" trap and trap arm after the vent.
    A shower needs 2" and 1.5" for the vent.
    The lav can be 1-1/4"
    Nobody really has that, so we run that in 1.5"

    It looks like you're doing that.

    If it's on the vertical, then a santee for venting, or a double fixture cross
    If it's vented on the horizontal, then a wye fitting for the vent.


    Offsetting the washer standpipe after the p-trap is fine.
    I like to use shutoffs with hammer arrestors for the washer box.

    The job pictures above look fantastic !

    quote; got any suggestions

    The first one would be to go to a plumbing school for 3 years to learn how to do plumbing, then do the job. The second one would be for you to call a plumber. The third on is that the pictures are so confusing I do not even know what they are showing, but they are absolutely no help as far as designing a system is concerned. Fourth, clean up the pictures. We do NOT have to know you are using "street 45s", or "sleeved 2 inch" for example. The "middle picture" was never inspected and it was probably done by some DIYer or handyman. Doing pretty tile work is NOT the same as doing "pretty" plumbing work, nor does plumbing swimming pools make someone a plumber.

    and this i was more fond of but hj said no go ...... and i suck & and im not pretty guess my pops sucks too i dunno
    this looked like it had as little areas to clog & all units have vent that only tie in near ceiling all in 2 "
    guys i get it , im no plumber, i can do some plumbing but far from pro
    what has thrown me on this is i never deal w washer most dont have washer in bath but im trying i have read so much on fixture rating ventdistance & tie in at what hieght reverse suction wet venting double fixture tee ect if u got some critizing id love it beat me up & give me smack talk tell me my momma be ashamed of me but gimmie a bit of advice too little hint maybe
    im not trying to front im in pretty deep i know i can do just not to sure bout the spliting into 2 horizontal lines so close together
    heck washer stand pipe was 1 1/4 before i wanted that right & all my tile buds said they see 1 1/2 from tub they do shower in same so i know im going overkill , im lucky i got a mom thats letting me take so long to learn it cause contract job i would have subbed
    im just trying to get better , put food on my kids table & support their mom
    so if all there is out there is haters well so be it but we all have things we could learn remedial or master level all we need is a good teacher
