In response to Re: Basement Bathroom
There is one interior wall up stairs that I can run the vent through. But that brings me to another question. How far away can the toilet be from the stack? Under the current floor plan that I have, and if I used a new stack in the available interior wall, then my toilet would be 8' from the stack. Is that too far away?

: There has to be a wall upstairs somewhere close that the 2" vent can be run through. Avoid Studor vents in a basement if possible.

: : I am designing a bathroom for my basement, and am currently trying to figure out my plumbing. I have run into few problems, and any advice you could offer would be great.

: : The bathroom will be under the kitchen. In the kitchen, there is currently a 1 1/2" vent that extends out through roof. Obviously tying into this vent will not be adequate for a toilet, sink, washer (or will it?). There are no walls above the bathroom to run a new vent stack, only an exterior wall (2x4) where the 1 1/2" vent is. What are my options? Studor vents maybe? I had thought maybe using Studor's on the washer, and sink, then tying the toilet into the existing 1 1/2" kitchen vent. Will that be adequate?

: : Thanks
