In response to Re: Waste Vent Pipe Location
: I am remodeling and thinking of moving toilet to other side of bathroom. I can access the waste line in the full basement underneath. I plan to cut the old elbow, extend the pipe over 4 1/2 feet, and install a new elbow up to new toilet location. Am I likely to have problems with horizontal flow, or venting? I plan to slope the horizontal pipe about 1" per foot.

I believe vent pipe should be within 5' of toilet. Also ,don't slope the waste too much or the "solids" wont flow. Approx 1/4" to 12" is recommended. Best to check your local bldg. codes. good luck... Hube
