In response to Re: Wet venting the toilet
: Referring to http://www.masterplumber.com/Laws/UPCExcerpts.html#toiletventing
: the illustration #2 on the right is approximately my situation, except my vertical run is wet-vented, and the horizontal run is under the slab. Ordinarily the wye branch near the toilet bend is positioned 45deg up from flat. However I've heard that when its a wet vent, the branch is set flat. Which way should I set this?
: Also, with the direction change being under slab I can't put in that wye with the cleanout. How about 45's for the change, and a santee with cleanout port in the vertical run?

I cannot follow what you want to do. Many places do not allow you to do a horizontal wet vent (which is what you are talking about). The vent is NEVER set flat when you vent on the horizontal. It always needs to be rolled above the center line of the drainage pipe. I do not understand your last paragraph at all. You can use a test tee for a cleanout above ground.
