In response to Re: toilet vent
You interpretted the requirement too literally. It means that every toilet must have a vent and that vent should go through the roof eventually, (dismissing the possibility of an air admittance valve). There is a minimum area requirement which dictates how many individual vents are required, buy once that number is satisfied, any other vents can be connected to them.

: THe new bathroom vent goes into the attic and I have stuffed a rag in it until i decide wether to run it through the roof or connect to the exiting vent 10 feet away. Part of why I havent connected it to the existing line is that I believe I heard that each toilet needs its own vent through the roof, and I dont want to do anything against code. The other part is that I bought a rubber roof flange that seems easy to install. Is it difficult to run through the roof and pproperly secure with an Oakley roof flange?

: : What do you mean you capped the vent? Are you going to uncap it and extend it through the roof? If that is the vent you are asking about, then you can do it either way.

: : : I installed a new bathroom on my top floor adjacent to the existing master bathroom. I have a 3" vent stack going into the attic that I have capped. The master bathroom vent is about 10 feet away. Can I tap into that or should I run the new pipe seperately through the roof?
