Basement Bathroom Plumbing Vents


Hello all,
I am new around here. Just curious if anyone could tell me if the following is legal in New York state or at all. We have 1 2" vent venting both toilet and shower. Shower is less than 5' from the 2" vent. The 2" vent is "teed" up from the 3" line that the toilet drains into.

Thanks!

If iam looking at your drawing correctly and your under the IPC the answer to your question is no.

What is the correct way to do it? Does each line need a separate vent?

UPC says no too. But I don't think NY is UPC so I can't advise you except to say I would put the shower on the vertical vent.
The safest way would be to give both fixtures independent vents- cut the shower in down stream of the existing vent

By cut in down stream you mean cut the main waste line from the stack and feed it in there? Minus the shower is the toilet properly vented? Is the problem there won't be enough air in the lines? What exactly is not to code about it?

New York goes by IPC from what I've learned although specific towns have their own code too. This is town of oyster bay if that helps.

Good question- let's say we wet vent it on the toilet vent later.

I assumed the drawing was a plan view. Never seen a square stack though
