    Basement rough-in with pump

    Based on the input, here’s how I was planning on mapping out the vent lines. Any issues? Toilet will have a 2” wet vent that connects to the bath sink line. After the sanitary tee to the sink, should I keep this 2” or can I downgrade to 1.5” for the vent? The floor drain next to the pump will...

    Basement rough-in with pump

    Thanks for the input. I’ll end up having a vent for both floor drains. The one in the mechanical room will vent to an AAV. The one near the pump will just tap into the vent line coming out of the pump - since this will be a dry vent that does up to the roof. Yes the first floor drain I picked...

The floor drain in the mechanical room will end up having a AAV, the floor drain by the pump will have a vent that connects to the vent from the pump. That vent will tie into a dry vent that goes up to...

    Basement rough-in with pump

    Copy that. Thank you! Will look into adding a trap primer for both floor drains. Due to the distance of the mechanical room from the existing vent lines, do you believe an AAV would be sufficient? If I had it come up the corner of the boiler room to a few feet off the ground.

    Basement rough-in with pump

    Hi everyone. Was just looking for some guidance and feedback on a basement rough in. Planning to install a sewage pump in the basement and figured I would add a half bath while I have everything opened up. Pump is going into the corner of the basement and will be tied into a clean out that is...
