    Can this be considered a wet vent or do the fixtures need vented individually?

    That drain looks deep enough to accomplish that. It can tie in less than 45 degrees vertically.

    I probably would. Buy a carbide tipped hole saw for stainless. Practice on a scrap piece of stainless sheet metal. If you work at a big hospital I'm sure you have something laying around. Post a picture. I may change my mind.

    The lav drains should have been installed with a double sweep. The lower drain is breaking the vent.

    Basement bathroom rough-in new construction - what to check?

    Also, I don't trust anyone anymore that say their a plumber. A lot of areas don't even require a license, you should ask them if they have one. One little mistake will cost you big time. Alot of people think anyone can do plumbing.

    Backflow preventer relief valve won't seal after rebuild

    By the way you have to be certified to work on it anyway. Just call a plumber that is certified to fix and test it.

    Close the house side and open the street side very slowly.

    Liberty 404L pump

    A liberty 404 is a tiny vessel, it will start to pump immediately after the washer starts draining so an AAV won't make any difference. I would be more concerned if it could keep up with a washer. You might want to investigate that.
