I need to add a vent to a bathroom group. I have a spot in a partition wall that it can run up. Unfortunately, the only open spot in it doesn’t line up with the waste line below. I was going to add a vent in the wall and use a sanitary tee on its back to tie it into the waste line. There is hardly any room in the space to do anything else. A wye and 45 will not fit.

The problem I have is that the vent will come down 1 foot off to the side of where the waste line currently runs. Is it possible to just add a 90 to the vent to turn it towards the waste line and then have it go in to a sanitary tee on its side? I could probably angle it up 10 or 15 degrees. Would this work for venting everything (toilet, standup shower, double sink)?

Edit: Sorry, I measured and it is 1 foot away off to the side not 2 like I originally posted.

No, a dry vent has to take off on the vertical and stay vertical until 6" above the fixture flood rim. So the san-tee should be rolled up at least 45 degrees.

Perhaps a floor plan showing what you have and what you are trying to do would allow us to offer an alternative.

Cheers, Wayne

Well I guess I could open up that wall and relocate stuff to the other side. More work, but then I can just hit the sanitary tee vertica”. Thanks.
