adding a cleanout


When adding a basement floor cleanout do you usually use a WYE fitting tied into septic or sewer with a cleanout adapter attached to it?

Yes, a wye and 45. You can buy clean outs with finished tops

I hate to beat a dead horse on this subject but I get different answers from people. When you have a 2 story house is most likely there will be 2 stacks? One serving basement and 1 story and the other serving the 2nd story or is it more common to just re-vent all the fixtures from the 1st floor so there no wet vented by 2nd story fixtures?

Put 6 plumbers in a house and you'll have it plumbed 6 different ways.
I try to wet vent as often as possible mainly because it saves time, fittings and pipe. Your question is too vague to give a definitive answer

I was told you can wet vent fixtures that are on the same level but is it true you cant wet vent fixtures on the first floor from second floor fixtures?

when vertical wet venting-it is limited to 1 floor- there are also limits to what fixtures can discharge into the wet vented section.
You can have a wet vent on each floor too - no limit to how many wet vents.

Ok I understand that but what I am asking is can second story fixtures serve as a wet vent for first story fixtures?

Ok so then either the second story needs a separate vent secondary vent or the first floor fixtures need to revent at least 6 inches above the second floor fixtures?

Rather then ask questions that border line on riddles-show us the scenario. Most questions like this have more then one correct answer

riddles? I gave a specific scenario. If you can NOT wet vent fixtures from 1st to 2nd floor then you must re-vent or have a secondary stack, correct?

Simple answer is correct. Each trap needs a vent. They don't have to combine to a common vent stack. If you have seven fixtures- you could have seven vents through the roof- or 2 or 4 or 1....... As I said before, 6 plumbers-6 ways.
