In response to Re: Can I use a Wye to plumb a toilet?
: I need to run a new 3" DWV line for a new bathroom toilet and the 3" line will run accross the floor, under the toilet and then up into the wall and to the roof as the vent stack. Can I use a wye/long-flow Tee fitting to tie the toilet to the 3" line and just have the horizontal leg of this wye run to (and up) the wall as the vent line?

: Or, do I need to have the 3" pipe connect to a 90* closet bend for the toilet connection and put in a 3" Vent tee slanted up 45* off of horizontal so that the vent line is not on the same horizontal plane as the actual waste line?
: I tried to sketch it out below:
: /attaches to toilet
: Like this? ____/___ horizontal vent to wall
: __ vent line beside drain pipe
: Or like this? ___/____/ attaches to toilet
