It depends on whether you are asking as a practical matter or a "legal" one. As a practical matter it will usually work, (It will function to protect against trap siphonage, but will not relieve positive pressures caused by draining the upper floor plumbing),but if there is a permit and inspections then it will not be approved. Time consuming and expensive is because plumbers want to do it correctly.

: I am getting ready to put in a bathroom and utility tub in my basement. I wanted to know the best way to go about venting this branch. Would it be sufficent to vent into a three inch horizontal run that comes from the second floor of the house (three floors up in relation to the basement) I would use the pipe as combonation waste/vent pipe. I heard of this being done before with sucess. The alternative for my application would be very time consuming and expensive.
