    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    Here the lavs would be venting right off the sanitee after the trap, dry venting to the roof. Is that sufficient?

    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    Wayne, I updated my drawing, could you take a look? Is the lav 1.5” cent enough to vent the bathroom 2 group at the the top left? Is the position after the wc on the horizontal drain ok? I believe the 1/2 bath layout is now properly vented? For bath group 1 in the top right, the lav and...

    Thoughts on how this old home was plainsong with this method?

    In another forum some were saying that if the drain line comes all the way down and ties into the vent stack below the lowest fixture, that is allowed? It didn’t make sense to me but I think that’s what they were going for here? Terry Love's example of two story plumbing

    Thanks. I posted a new thread about how the original home was plumbed, not sure how they managed to make it work?: https://terrylove.com/forums/index.php?threads/thoughts-on-how-this-old-home-was-plainsong-with-this-method.99637/

    Thoughts on how this old home was plainsong with this method?

    100 year old house, but high end for its time. 2 full baths on the 2nd floors, one 1/2 Bath on the first floor. The layout was 4” cast iron, servicing all the bathrooms and fixtures, with no venting except where the waste line comes into the basement, ties in below a 4” vent stack that goes to...

    Would adding in a 2” wet vent to the lav below the toilet connection be up to code for venting the toilet?

    Thanks! I’ll post a new thread about the original layout of the plumbing, since that’s a slightly different topic. I found an interesting photo and would like some feedback

    Would adding in a 2” wet vent to the lav below the toilet connection be up to code for venting the toilet?

    That’s a tough condition to visualize. So the combo approach you mentioned above works because both the wc and lav inputs are both horizontal, and the sanitee option works because the outlet is vertical?

    Would adding in a 2” wet vent to the lav below the toilet connection be up to code for venting the toilet?

    Ok, I’ll get out sawzall. Just to confirm the vent coming out from above the lav trap needs to be 2”, not 1.5” since it’s only servicing the lav and WC?

    Would adding in a 2” wet vent to the lav below the toilet connection be up to code for venting the toilet?

    You mean go above the existing wc connections? Or do you mean drop The toilet pipe down into wye and have the 2” wet vent come in from the end?

    Would adding in a 2” wet vent to the lav below the toilet connection be up to code for venting the toilet?

    Wayne you are the man. For education, would the below work as well? A long 90 to vertical, a sanitee with the 2” lav wet vent, then anther long 90 back to the stack?

    Would adding in a 2” wet vent to the lav below the toilet connection be up to code for venting the toilet?

    Trying to salvage this layout, it’s very tight space. Can can I add a 2” wet vent as marked yp from the lav next to the toilet, under the toilet connection be up to code? The vertical stack is going up to another bathroom on a different floor so that can’t be used to vent. Is there a better...

    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    So that dry vented lav is using a 1.5” pipe? And that size is enough to vent the WC, the lav and the tub?

    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    In the photo below, for the lower level half bath near red number 3, could I add a vent after the wc and sink but before the mains stack, or the vent need to go where the sink joins, or before that?

    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    So where the lav joins the tub, two 1.5” lines would need to be upsized to 2”, and the 2” vent off that line vents the wc,lav,and tub?

    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    So basically the vent needs to be behind the flow of the waste? Or is that oversimplified. Really appreciate the input. If this was a new build it would be much easier, it’s a historic house so I’m trying not to tear out all the tiles/floors/walls and space is very limited.

    Venting side by side bathrooms, and another bathroom a floor below

    Thanks Terry, love the site. Could I have both top floor bedrooms wet vent into the 3” horizontal with the vent located in the middle? They are back to back bathrooms. Would the above work if I revent the 1/2 bath to the 2nd floor vent stack? Meaning, is the issue the powder room on the floor...
