In response to Re: Quick Vent Question
By "before" I meant upstream. My p-trap ends up past the wall that I was going to vent up. Can I have the first part of the p-trap go in one direction and then reverse it to go back the other? If I did that I would be able to vent up the wall. Otherwise my vent will have to be at less than a 45 degree angle to get back to the wall that the vent was going to go up to the attic system.

I guess this is not a "quick" question.

: "Before and after" when referring to a drain can be confusing, since you could be referring to the way the pipe is installed or the way the water is flowing which can be just the opposite. The vent has to be between the trap and its connection to the sewer system.

: : I have a 2" line coming from my shower that I am tying my tub into. Can I vent the tub approx. 1 foot before the tub tie-in or do I have to vent after the tie-in?

: : Thanks for your advice.
