I still have no idea what you're trying to accomplish, i'm not feeling well today, but here's what you're looking for, i think.

I NEED TO VENT MY SANIPLUS SYSTEM ABOVE ALL THE OTHER INLETS FROM FIRST FLOOR DRAINS. I am trying to figure out how I can do that with only 8 3/8" of 3" stack to deal with. That is why I made the drawing as another option of how I can work it. I need to know if my idea will work fine.

There is a reason nobody understands what you doing.you don't vent anything above just the inlets of the drains from the floor above.you vent above the flood rims of the fixtures on the floor above.that requires you to cut a vent in on your first floor not in your basement(assuming there is no second floor plumbing).you don't need that fitting you are asking for.if you want to hack up your own house why bother coming here asking for advice.somebody explained flood rims 8 posts ago but you must of missed that

Yet another brilliant example of a poster asking for help, receiving good sound advice and then blowing it off, "sorry I asked for help".

Don't you just love when this happens!

You haven't seen mean unless you have spent some time with the journeymen I apprenticed with..........

Things like climbing to the top of a 130 Ft tall grain drier and then the guy says he forgot his screwdriver in the truck........and you need to go get it, now.

That doesn't sound like any fun. Hell, I try to stay off roofs in general whenever possible.

That was a very long time ago, I went back to school after about 15 years of working as a journeyman, figured engineering was the way to go, I wanted to be the guy giving the orders instead of taking them, that was some 25 years ago.

when did that happen? I made a drawing putting the vent above the "flood plane" of all other devices and showed how I would reroute the prior drain and someone says I still have no idea what you are trying to accomplish...

In your drawing, are the fixtures that drain into that stack on the floor above? If yes, what they are trying to tell you is that you cannot vent your new device in the basement. Period. You have to vent it higher than the highest place water could collect in those fixtures.

that is why in the drawing where it says "cut this one out", that is where the vent would be with nothing else above it. The 1.5" line that was draining there would be 45'd down to the new Sanitary Tee that the Sanipro is going to discharge into. That is fine then right???

This is very simple..if you want to do this the correct way..cut in a 3 by 1.5 wye anywhere on your stack in the basement.if it were me I would cut in somewhere that gave me room.2 foot 3 foot 4 foot off the floor, doesn't really matter.now this is the part your not understanding.go on your first floor , locate your stack wall, and cut a hole in the drywall to access your stack anywhere above 42 inches and cut in a 3by2 wye or twye.off the branch of that fitting drop that line into your basement to vent all you new fixtures and your pump.it really is a simple DIY job.vent it any other way will not be correct.i get the impression you have no intrest in cutting any wall upstairs but that should of been figured on before you started this project.while your at it your unvented laundry tray in the picture could also be tied onto the new 2" vent dropped in the basement

explain why I have to do that if I move the drain in the drawing. The top 1.5" inlet would be the highest thing in the stack and nothing wet would drain above it, all below once I move it. Why do I need to add it so much higher in the stack? The saniflo rep or installation doesn't mention anything even remotely close to what you are suggesting I do.

Basic plumbing.for the third and final time all vents tying into any stack must be above the flood rim of all fixtures on that stack.if you sewer ever plugs your vents would fill with sewage due to the fact they aren't above the flood level of the fixtures.at this point I'm done explaining this to you.enjoy you new bathroom and the sewer gas smell that will surely follow
