In response to Re: Remodeling bathrooms - drain and vent question (Updated drawing)

Hi Terry,

Thanks so much for your reply. I've made a new drawing which I believe shows the changes you suggested. Can you take a look and let me know if it looks better.

One of my concerns was that the 2" drain might not be a big enough pipe to drain all 4 fixtures. Is the 2" OK, or should I use a 3" pipe from the sewer to the lavatory double fixture fitting?

I really appreciate the help.
Thanks again,

: Brian,
: the best way, if you are putting both tubs on the same line, would be a double fixture fitting instead of the tee fitting, with each tub having it's own trap arm and p-trap.
: The vent from the fixture fitting (tubs) would tie in to the vent line above the lavs.
: This way, you would keep the 2" line to the lavs (fixture cross), and use 1.5" trap arms for them.
: Where the waste line ties into the main line, you would use a wye or combo fitting.
: A sanitary tee on it's back will not work there.

: Do not plumb it this way.
