Kitchen plumbing set-up. Is this ok?


This is the way the plumbing was when I bought my house. Is this allowed? It looks like they did some work on the kitchen and ran the drain to the basement because the origional connection point was above where the trap would attach. or maybe it is just a cleanout? Hopefully the picture helps.

Anyone agree that line should have gone through the wall not through the floor. I thought that old style was againt code.

S-traps are not allowed. It needs to go back to the wall. Is thee a vent on the roof above the sink?

I live in michigan if that helps. There is a 1.5 or 2" line that runs from the basement (where it connects to the CI hub) up through the roof. The kitchen sink traps but the 'discharge' from the trap goes down through the floor into the basement where it connects to the drain/vent line. Is this ok?
