Venting Basement Shower
Posted by Pete Firehammer on October 05, 2001 at 10:09:34:

I have a question about code requirements for venting a shower drain in my basement.

Recently my home was inspected (a requirement of the city of Minneapolis prior to placing a
home on the market), and the inspector told me that my basement shower stall is not vented properly.

I currently have a laundry tub and a bathroom lavatory sink connected to separate 1 1/2" vent pipes,
which come together at a tee connected to a 3" vent pipe that goes up through the roof.
The shower trap is located about two feet from the 1 1/2" vent pipe for the laundry tub.
So my question is: Can I legally vent the shower drain through the same 1 1/2" vent pipe used by
the Laundry tub?
