Basement venting
 
Hello,

I've been reading this forum for a long time, but this is my first post.

I'm finishing my basement and that includes installing a bathroom.

The house is 1 year old and we had the builder rough-in the bathroom in the basement. I have drain pipes for the tub, toilet and sink.

Is it reasonable to assume that this rough plumbing is already connected to the vent stack? The are all just capped right now.

I bought and planned to install an AAV for the sinks, but the toilet and tub are pipes coming out of the concrete. I'm not sure how I would vent these if they aren't already.

Thanks!

Well if it was done correctly, then they should of course be connected. Were these pipes drawn in on your building plans?

Can you contact the plumber that installed them to double check that he would have connected them to the vent?

I know most people counldn't care less about having a tool like this at there disposal, but I think it would be super useful in a number of situations, I think they sell it on sale for $299

It would tell you for sure how things are connected. You could also pay a plumber to come out and do a camera inspection, but from what I have seen, no one will do it for less than $300, why not own the camera.
