Venting bathroom vent thru dryer duct
 
We're trying to vent a new bathroom in the basement and are trying to avoid running a new vent duct to the outside. The dryer vent runs thru the ceiling near where the bathroom vent is to be installed. Is it possible to tap into dryer vent to vent the bathroom? If so what would need to be done?

Sorry its not permitted. the venting must be dedicated to the exhaust fan, you run the possibility of the dryer exhaust existing through the bath fan its self.

Bob's 100% right. Do whatever it takes to do this another way.
