In response to Re: Roughing in Bathroom in Basement...how to vent?

: I am finishing my basement bath which was stubbed in when the house was built 3 years ago. My main drain drops vertically within 4 feet from the sink and toilet and about 7 feet from the shower. Can I rely on this drain to vent to the main vent stack? I know it isn't optimal, but really don't want to rip out sheetrock up stairs to run a new vent. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Craig,
If the basement bath was stubbed in when built, it would also have been vented, right?
It wouldn't be much of a "future bath" if they left out that.
If that was not the case, then to answer the question, no, the main stack can't be used for the vent line. Terry
