Adding a second toilet.


Obviously this configuration creates issues if you only have a 3" line coming into the building. There are other ways to do it, but I can't tell by your picture how much raw pipe you have to tap into. This would be the least amount of pipe and fittings.

Here's your fixture cross : http://www.terrylove.com/images/abs/...ture_cross.jpg

I'm just assuming that they make that in a 4x3x3x3 config....

Adding a second toilet.


What is a san-cross?
Here's a pic of one way I think I can do it.
The other sink and tub vents could be attached to the new vent stack, yes?
Alan: Your drawing would require me moving the existing toilet. This would be hard to do.

Thanks guys!

The only thing that worries me about this setup is that without a proper vent between the tee for your new toilet, and the old toilet, that your old toilet may be subjected to some siphoning as the new toilet is flushed.

You wouldn't have to 'MOVE' the old toilet, just re-plumb it. If you're under there anyway... eh....

A san cross is the same type of fitting, except the inlets have short sweeps. You don't want that for toilets.

How about this to fix the siphon effect?

But it'd probably have to be a 3" at least, right?

While that wouldn't fly here, I'd be willing to bet that you won't have problems with it. I'd prefer to use a wye/45 or a combo fitting on the toilet discharge side to eliminate the possibility of solids getting stuck in a santee. 3" will be great for the vent.

Sanitary tee : http://images.orgill.com/200x200/2221158.jpg

Use this on your vent side to connect the vent coming from the old toilet to the vent stack

Found the perfect picture to differentiate....

Hope that makes sense :D

Here's a picture of a combo by itself

http://images.orgill.com/200x200/5851548.jpg


I think a wye + 1\8 bend is self explanitory, but for simplicity's sake when measuring, i'd just use the combo.
