Distance to stack


Hi there.

Im moving my sink 3 feet further away from the stack/drain tee off.
Its an older house where the (2' outside dia/cast iron) drain pipe runs into a vertical pipe and the stack runs directly up from this through the roof. The new distance will be a total of 6 feet from the trap to the stack.

Will I need to bring the stack closer and if so can I tap into the exsisting stack above the drain junction and move it over and tee in closer to the trap.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance.
Rusty

Too far from vent at 6', you will need to run a new vent back to the stack within 5' providing the trap and arm will be 2", if trap and trap arm is 1 1/2" then the distance to vent is 3'6"

This is under UPC Code.

Thanks Ron.

I'll bring her in at 3'6".
Last time I was down your way was to watch a Ducks game.
Had a blast!

You understand that is for the vent, once you hit vent, then it does not matter for distance to main.
