moving a vent pipe


Is there any reason that I could not move the vent pipe [center] in the below picture to one of the two circled areas on the left?

That cast iron T is the drain for two upstairs showers as well as the pictured shower and down stairs sink [ horizontal section of pipe]

You really shouldn't lay the vent horizontal below the slab although it is done sometimes. Is that what you want to do? Or do you want to move the point that the vent connects to the drain? You can move it downstream but not beyond the wye- at least by my code.

@TheEplumber - I won't be laying it below the slab - I will keep it in the same configuration just change it's location to the area of the wye-

If the second picture is your lower shower- yes, the same line that has the ptrap
