Drain and vent questions


Hello All - and Happy New Year!!
I am installing two new bathrooms in my house and I am not sure where to place the vent(s). I am hoping to get away with one vent. I've attached a sketch of the drains and I wonder if you good folks can tell me if this is a feasible layout? Also, where should I place the the vent pipe(s)?

Many Thanks,
Russell

Russell, the sketch should have lengths of run shown before anyone can recommend vent location (s). There are 'critical distance to be considered between the traps and vents. Also wall location would be helpful and wall thicknesses 2x4 or 2x6? Cleanout need to be provided also. You might want to look at AAV's (studo-vents)

Drain and vent questions


Hello Again,

I have attached another version of my drains, including length of runs and walls. The house is of frame construction with a bit of a crawl space. The floor has been removed, so I can easily move around. I have considered AAV, but I'd like to avoid them if I can. I don't mind having two vents and if two are needed, I thought I would join them in the attic so as to have only one roof protrusion. I still am unsure where to put the cleanout(s). Do I need one for each toilet?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
