Drain and Vent Layout Help


I guess I could go with a rear flush toilet if I don't have the proper depth of 15"?

Drain and Vent Layout Help


My question would be for E.. In that code do they allow you to circuit vent fixtures. ? If so he could run a three inch line in the middle of the room heading up towards the toilet and shower with a single event in between the toilet and Y fitting for the shower. Head down towards bathtub and vent that with one of the sinks.

circuit vent is not listed in UPC definitions.
What you are describing above- I would call horizontal wet venting, for lack of a better term, which is not allowed per UPC.

Idaho has recently adopted it's own hybrid version of the UPC we call IPC(Idaho Plumbing Code) Although I haven't reviewed it thoroughly, it does allow for some circuit vent applications for residential work
