1. ### 8' run for 2" pipe for wet vent

Here is a picture, except its not 4" but 3" pipe. The new shower p trap at the top goes about 3' till it gets to a 3" pipe, that is a Y to a toilet, and then the cast iron stack. So the length of the 2" is limited to 8 foot? or the length of the 2" from the P trap to the vertical stack is 8...
2. ### 8' run for 2" pipe for wet vent

If the 2" pipe joins a 3" horizontal drain pipe before the 8', then what can be the total distance to the stack? I may have 4' of 2" pipe to the 3" pipe, and then 5 more feet until the vertical stack. Would that be ok?
3. ### Tilting Wye a little from flat for a toilet

You guys are great, I understand now. I miswrote about the 45, I have a 90 coming directly off the Wye side to go up to a toilet, I was fearful if I rotated the Wye too much it wont match up with the flange, but I suppose by doing it just a little, it will be ok, with a little play in the joints.
4. ### Tilting Wye a little from flat for a toilet

So Jeff, would you not just slope the Wye, but also tilt/twist it so its higher? Not too much or the 45 on it wont be flush for the flange.
5. ### Tilting Wye a little from flat for a toilet

I have a toilet coming directly off the side arm of a 3" Wye, where the Wye is laid horizontal, the main line going straight, and the side arm going off to the right. Should I roll the Wye a little so the arm is a little above flat to increase the slope coming from the regular 90 off the toilet...
6. ### Slow basement toilet

I already got rid of the toilet, Im sure it was old. I have a newer diagram of the revised plumbing, with the stack, then the wye with the angle going off to a vertical 90 to the toilet (I need the wye to also push the main drain line out farther from the wall. On the straight part of the wye it...
7. ### Slow basement toilet

Ah hah! Perhaps I could use a wye for the toilet arm, but use a wye with a 2"side inlet on the top, and vent that out!
8. ### Slow basement toilet

So the toilet is only 2' from the main stack, I'm short on space. Could I use a double Wye with one branch connected directly to the 90 upward bend for the toilet and the other sideways branch out to a vent (and the main line going out to drain a nearby shower) ?

10. ### Slow basement toilet

So is it ok to vent the toilet this way, 2 feet from the main stack (in Virginia) below other fixtures (like toilets) in the floor above? I read somewhere that you couldnt because if a lot of water came down the main stack then it could empty the toilet trap ..??
11. ### Slow basement toilet

My basement toilet is about 2' from the main stack. No other venting. Is that allowed? Is that why the toilet drains slowly, or is that because it is such an old toilet? I opened up the cast iron toilet drain line to relocate it farther away from the wall, and I discovered about 3/4" of water...
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
