new construction - dwv tub/toilet question


Hi everyone,

I have a new construction and want to double-check the current setup of a second story tub/shower/sink combo. The layout has the tub on the opposite wall but inline with the toilet so here is what I did initially from left to right ...

2" P-Trap - 2" pipe - 2" to 3" adapter - 3" pipe - 3" horizontal sanitary tee (up for 3" toilet) - 3" pipe - 3" vertical sanitary tee (up for for 3" vent and down for 3" waste).

Distance from the tub drain to the vent is 7 feet.

Is it permissable to run inline horizontally from the tub to the toilet before the vent?

A better solution?

Thanks!

you need to use a wye and a 45 if you have the room or lay a wye on its side and then use a 3x4 toilet 90 for toilet

You need to vent your tub trap. Also a y fitting is required for the toilet. You cannot drain any material into a TEE fitting as shown. You also should pull a permit as required for your construction so your home will not be condemned in the future. Ohio is very strict about building codes especially northern Ohio where I inspect for a county.

thanks jaydevries - as long as I reroute with the wye and 45 it then the tub should be okay vent-wise? I just didn't want to revent up and over the outside wall to tie the tub back into the stack. I appreciate the advice.

I have all the permits - unfortunately the original plans you have sometimes change due to the final design of the home. I'm seeking advice and won't have it inspected until it's perfect.

Tee is the way we have to do it for fixture arms.
And why 2" to the tub or is it a shower?
