    Bathroom venting, toilet on top

    Thanks. What I was planning on now is, since the lav does has a vent, running the shower into the lav drain to wet vent it, then to the main stack. Sort of as I tried to draw below Note I didn't draw it but the lav has a dry vent up through the wall.

Between the main stack and kitchen, the bathroom existing lav and shower tie in, again with no vent pipes on this line. Only vent in the whole system is the main cast iron pipe shown in the pics. I...

    Main stack advice

    My recently aquired old home has the main stack as shown in the pics. The home inspector did not flag anything here prior to purchase, but I'm looking for any advice here on any issues you see or how to tie in for future renovations. A: unused 2" that was for a washing machine in basement. B...
