Basement shower drain help..


Thanks for the drawing, the sewer line is running I would say around 17 inches behind the toilet, (it is not in the room, but 17 inches back). Also, there is a 2 inc vent stack about 3 feet from the toilet, so I can tie into that for venting, it goes all the way up and ties to the main stack above all bathroom fixtures upstairs bath.

So everything has to be vented before it hits the stack? Also the drain line goes from left to the right towards the main sewer discharge. Am I using wyes on everything?

Sorry about that, I meant ground level sewer line. Also the wye do I put them side way, or a little higher up? Also everything vented before it hits main sewer line??? On the toilet I don't have enough room to install another wye or tee for venting., what can be done??? Can I vent from the pipe thats going up to the flange, since its about 3 feet deep?

Your talking plumbing language. Do you mean to use two wyes? One for the drain and one for the venting? If thats the case, I don't have room for it.

OK use a low heal 90 at the wall just behind the toilet then a long turn 90 below the low heal, then tie into the wye combo off of mainline connection.

Low heal 90 will give you your vent vertical in the wall.
