Is this legal
 
1 Attachment(s)
I live in Elko county NV. I am building a mother-in-law cottage. When I finished gluing/welding the dwv for the shower I thought I should have done it different. What do you think? Should the vent be on the top and drain on the side? Is this legal? Should I rip it out and do it over or leave it the way it is?
Edit: Forgot to mention it is underground plumping with concrete slab

Welcome to the forum Robpo. Please wait for the plumbers to look at your pic and respond to your post. Eplumber and ghost know ipc and upc codes and will let you know if what you have there meets code. Thanks. If you do have to redo it, the good thing is it won't cost much in parts. Thanks.

It is not illegal (against the law) but it is not code compliant. To vent it properly replace the 90 with a tee and take the vent out of the top of the tee.

that would be clasified as a wet vent...vent should be above the flow line..some areas allow for wet venting..but imo its not a good vent system.. if you can rip it out and redo it with vent off top..

Or just swap the connection point for the drain and the vent so the vent is on the upper line.

Robpo 03-30-2014 07:38 PM

Yea, I plan an ripping it out and thanks for the explanation because my wife asked me why it was not code compliant.

I will be able to reuse the trap but everything else, the 2" san tee and 4x4x2 y with 45, I think will be junk.

you could tie trap into the 2x2x2 tee and take vent off top ...if you have room to cut off the 90....

no room it's street tee. or maybe a street 90, I forget. When I told my wife I was going to try to reuse it she gave me a look and she is the designer.

Got enough good weather to get underground glued. My area is all rock. I have about 3-4 inches of sand in bottom of trench any ideas for bracing. Not sure what code is for bracing I will probably remove it after inspector leaves unless it is actually holding something. I will call inspector later today to find out what else is needed.

He might ask for an end of the line clean out--- mine would

Robpo 04-07-2014 07:37 PM

E,
Would that be at the toilet end or before the septic end where it leaves the house? When I built my home he wanted it where it left the house.
Thanks,

Thanks,

I'll sure defer to E.... but I thought it was most desirable upstream.
