In response to Re: venting a basement bathroom
: 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.

Major home improvements are usually time consuming and expensive. Do not tie the vent from a lower floor into the waste stack from an upper floor. Shortcutting this could give you headaches for a long time and impact your ability to sell this home in the future.
