In response to Re: Plumbing rough in for toilet drain.
: What is the maximum distance a toilet drain can be from the stack or vent pipe? Ed

In NYC not more then 2 feet.

But many of the country plumbing codes allow a much greater distance

If your using the micky mouse codes like the SBCCI then almost anything is legal .

The SPC is another joke.

More then half these codes do not even address a suds pressure zone so venting in these codes is also lacking in quality design.

Check local codes. The closer to the fixture the better.

The standard plumbing code (a joke) table 906.1
I would assume they are saying 10 feet.
