Bathroom Ventilation


When installing your typical bathroom fan, Is it aceptable to vent it into the plumbing/toilet vent. Would the added moisture cause any problems,especially in the winter seasons

I don't know, but do you want to take a chance of having foul odors backing up in through the bathroom vent ducting?

No, that would be against code. A bath fan must be exausted to the exterior of the structure.
