Another vent question
 
if a fixture is too far from the stack I know that it needs its own vent. For example if I have a 2 inch drain from a shower and since I need to revent it can I use a WYE fitting and run the vent from the top of the WYE then up and over to the stack?

Uhhhhhh :eek:

Pretty sure it does.

If it doesn't, then why even bother venting it?

we used to use a san tee on its back for venting like that. inspectors approved of it. it had to be vertical or at most or least on a 45 degree angle.

How did you determine your trap is too far away? Did you just decide on a random length? Of course code has something to do with it:bangin:

like this?

mikem201 01-22-2013 12:49 PM

yes like that. That WYE pointing up should be used to vent that fixture, right? I have been told many time that san tee's should not placed on their sides.

That depends on what it's being used for. The rules about this fitting and what it can be used for can be found in a CODE book.

San T vs. Wye & 1/8

The picture you sent me previously with the WYE used for draining and venting at the top is the WYE positioned right though? Looks like its venting the toilet?

Fitting "A" looks like a 3x3x2 Wye and it is being used as the toilet vent. What is the problem you see with that??

Hey Allen, How come the Uniform Plumbing Code is anything but Uniform?

Why dont they call it the Variable Plumbing Code? or the It depends on the whim of your Inspector, code?

Does poop have a mind of its own, and it acts differently in different places?

Yes this is a rhetorical question.
