Max run for 3" Toilet run to main stack


Can someone tell me what the maximum allowable run length is for a toilet to travel to the main stack in a home? Without adding a vent.

Thanks

where i live you cant do that nowadays bend, or. But i do know that 6 ft. is the maximum allowable developed length of the trap arm to the toilet vent here in Oregon. If i were you i would call your local jurisdiction to ask them that question about the main stack being used also as the vent.

You'd have to check your local codes. Here in MA, it's 8 feet between a trap (closet bend in this case) to a vent.
