: I have never seen a side inlet wye....
: This is not okay. Can you use a street 90 out of the closet flange and a street 90 out of the bottom of the side inlet tee and use a test tee for a clean out on the vertical vent above the floor or in the horizontal on the drainage line?

I hadn't seen one either (and the way things are going I might not!) but I am posting the picture from the Charlotte Pipe catalog.

I'm not sure there's enough room for your solution, but it's a great idea and I'll check it out.

I'm trying to understand what exactly is wrong with the configuration shown in #2. Without the shower, it would be fine, right? The toilet drain is vertically vented by the vent stack.
I'm not sure I understand the difference between the shower trap arm entering the high side of the wye, or the high side of the san tee a foot higher.

Thanks again...I'm not trying to argue, just to learn the finer points of the code...your feedback is very helpful!
