drain question


Hi,

Is it acceptable to tie another fixtures drain into the toilet drain before entering the waste stack or is it more common for each fixture to enter the stack individually?

drain question


How far away from the stack is the toilet?
Are the toilet/sink re-vented?

You would need to vent the sink you tied in.

If your tying a sink drain into the toilet drain before entering the stack and both are within 5 feet of the stack do you still need to run a separate vent for the sink?

YES
Vents are done to prevent trap pull.

What you asked does not have a yes or no answer.
You have not mentioned what code is used in your area, this will affect how your inspector reviews your work
