the way Ghost suggested in his post would be the correct way to bring in the tub and lav.


Honestly lost me on that Javiles......

So... if you have two codes, how does that work... do you just have to obey the stricter code... or did you mean different jurisdictons have adopted different code.

Does this accurately depict how Ghost suggested? I would love to do it this way if it is code compliant.

Edit - I guess what confuses me is in Ghost's post above, he asks if I can install the 3x3x2 wye downstream of the WC, but unless I am just really misunderstanding this, the 3x3x2 wye was already downstream of the WC in my pic. So I thought maybe I am confused on what is upstream and what is downstream

Fwiw, my area adopts the Ohio code, which is the "2011 Ohio Plumbing Code", which is based on the "2009 International Plumbing Code (IPC)". Below is a link to the "2011 Ohio Plumbing Code".

That drawing has me confused.... but I'm pretty sure that that is not what Ghost was talking about.... definately could be wrong however.

Interested to hear what he meant....

DJ....Just caught your edit..... that is exactly what I did not understand also.... and I'm interested in what he was talking about.

I'll blow all your minds now....

Install a 3 by 2 wye downstream of your wc vent both the lav and tub. Make sure you run 2 inch to the tub vent. run 1.5 inch to the tub trap. Use a 2 by 2 by 1.5 inch wye with 1.5 inch going to your lav.

Tell the Wayne county inspector Medina county says it looks good...

LOL

You will also need to test with water out the roof or 5 lBS air your choice.

I also think wayne county requires you keep your main stack 3 inch all the way out the roof.



_____Y____WC


WC is a toilet plumbers call them water closets.

Ghost.... You're right in regard to blowing my mind........ How is your above in bold any different than what was originally designed.

He's got a 3x3x2 downstream of the WC and his lav/tub branch is obviously a 2".

Am I missing something........

He can do that as long as he runs 2 inch all the way to his tub vent. And he actually uses a WYE fitting under his toilet not a sanitary tee on its back. That tee would be an illegal use of fittings.

If you think about it a 3 inch wye on it's back with a 45 to the toilet is over 10 inches in depth. Most folks do not have bigger joist.

I didn't mean to imply any use of a T. Ghost I really appreciate the help and I'm trying to capture your advice in a drawing to confirm my understanding. Can you please have a look at my pic in post #11? Does that match what you are describing as the proper solution?

And yep - am planning to bring 3" through the roof and thanks about the water vs air - the code seems to say that both are required but I definitely want to do air as I am in a finished area through two floors

He could even have toilet flange below that 3 by 2 tee 2 inch going to tub and lav and 3 inch street 90 below tee to stack.

I need to know how many foot is your tub from the Wye where you pick up the branch to the lav. Not knowing a firm number causes concern. What we are installing is called a wet vent for a bathroom group. If your tub is greater then 6 foot from that wye then we will need to vent it. If the tub is equal to 6 foot or less then you do not need to vent the tub. All you will need to do is vent the lav. So could you please give footage to both fixtures?

I think the OP wants to use #11. Where are the wet vents there? The lab and tub are separately vented, and the WC is vented where it hits the stack, upstream of the tie-in to the other bath fixtures. Right?

OP - you have your 3x2 wye labeled wrong. This may be confusing you. The barrel of the fitting is called out first, then the branch last.
