basement bath rough in ID


Ok pic one of the trapped shower drain is from the middle of the bathroom. Pics two and three are 180 from that.

My questions:

1) is the pipe to the right my sink drain? That one, the toilet drain and the shower.drain on the opposite side are the only pipes in the bathroom roughed in.

2) I have 1/2" flowguard lines above where the sink and toilet will be. I'll definitely be coming off of a 1/2" supply line for the sink and shower hot water. There is a 3/4" cold line about 8' away. Should I extend the 3/4" supply line to the sink and toilet area and run them down the wall off.of that? At least one other bathroom on the upper levels feeds off of those 1/2" lines as well since they go up through the ceiling.

Thanks for any assistance!

Right pipe --is that 2" ?---I believe that is the vent--and could be used as the drain for the sink----

Why is there a 3x2 san tee in the ceiling? Must be a vent? You can not use that tee for a drain. Should be a wye instead.
Where is the toilet located in the 3rd image?

I believe you're right, but my code would require a vent on the shower as well.

nbcarr1-- what code are you under? Can you give us a location?

I am in Baltimore county Maryland.

The pipe with the tee isn't connected with the alleged sink drain if I recall correctly. Let me check on it...

I was confused by the pictures- that 3" is in the ceiling above the shower- must be a vent for the upstairs toilet. It wouldn't pass inspections here but obviously has in Maryland. It has no bearing on the basement plumbing
