Drainage Code and Question

I have tried reading the code book and it is greek to me. My question is what size drain do I need for a toilet? What is the drop rate (1/4 per foot i think)? and do I need a vent for the toilet and a seperate vent for the tub/sink/shower?

Located in Ohio

Drainage Code and Question

Here under UPC, which you probably don't use that code. slope to 1/4" per ft, and each fixture requires it's own vent.

Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
