Bath tub vent


Can I run the drain after the P-trap, the length of the 5' tub, to the opposite wall before I Tee down and vent up?

Bath tub vent


In other words can I have my vent pipe for a 1-1/2" drain about 5 feet from the P-trap?

Yes---Depending on your local code---5 to 6 feet is allowed and works just fine.

Bath tub vent


I'm in Alabama if that helps.I'm installing a bathtub on the second floor and thought of trying to put the vent up through the same 2 x 4 wall with the control valve and supply lines. It just seems a little tight.The other option would be to put the tee in the opposite wall and vent up.If I'm reading the chart correctly, for a residential home I can do that.
Correct?

Correct?
Putting the vent at the head is done all the time to keep the trap arm short(UPC length is 3'6") Just put the vent to the stud bay left or right of the valve and use a 90 to hit the trap. Now all the plumbing is in one wall and not conflicting with the valve
