bathroom plumbing


I would like like to thank everyone who helped me on my last post it really means a lot to me, but here is my other bathroom that needs some help. Attached is the diagram in which my current setup is like.

Here are my questions

1) with this setup is it ok for my 1.5 sink drain to wet vent into the toilets 2'' vent stack

2) along the length of the 7' pipe I want to add a test tee "because the inspector said that I needed a cleanout.

the line on the far left of the side view is my foundation.

Since he asked for a clean out did he say "no" to the wet vent?

My inspectors would have no issues with the wet vent- perfectly OK per UPC. In fact, you really don't need the lav to re-vent back to the cross(which is drawn upside down). You could have armed straight over instead

For the CO- I'd try to use a wye rolled up above the drain's center line rather then a test tee. But then you have limited space- so if he accepts the tee then go for it

This is what was there. The walls were covering the vent. I am tearing off the drywall to add insulation and figured I would ask you guys if everything seemed compliant prior to me covering the walls back up.

as far as the CO what do you mean rolled up above the drains center line? The main waste is about a foot maybe slightly more from floor joists.

and I just checked my house the double tee is way I drew it, so it looks like I will just replace the double tee with a san t , and not worry about the lav drain venting (could you also explain why I do not need the lav to vent, does it have to do with distance to the 2'' vent?)

Thanks for your help in my other thread as well.

The piping in the wall exceeds code so there is no reason to change the layout- unless you want to save a couple fittings. If you are not re piping this portion, changing the cross is not a big dea eitherl IMO

When a Co is installed on a horizontal line, it's good practice to roll the branch of the fitting so it is at about a 45* pitch uphill. If you remove the cap you don't want poo running out of a backed line.
Another way to say it- A clear flowing pipe has it's flow line at no higher than the center line of the pipe- so the opening should be above that.

So as long as i have room to tilt the wye 45 degrees I should attempt to put a one in there. Do they make wye's with a threaded portion or do I have to add a threaded street?

Does he want the cleanouts so you can pressure test your work? Most inspectors like to see a test to prove the plumbing isn't leaking.

Sorry this is not a building inspector. This was the inspection i had prior to purchasing my house and I feel like since im working on everything now, might as well make it right if it needs addressed.

If it was just a home inspector- I personally wouldn't put it in.
If that line backs up, pulling that plug might get you wet. Better to pull the toilet to cable the line.
To answer your question though- the clean out adapter is a separate fitting as you described. It glues into the wye
