Plumbing diagram - is it ok?

So, no one has any input on this ^^^ question? Should I line the hole with something or not worry about this at all? Owner's manual doesn't say anything about it.

This morning the hole was almost half-way full. OK, I'll pump it out but do I need to do anything to prevent the water from coming there?
I don't think you can do much about it.
When you set the basin, fill it with water so it doesn't float

The best answer I can give is that it depends on your inspector. We do it quite often in my area though.
Ideally, you want to avoid any horizontal venting below the flood rim.
You UPC guys need to get an update on your code man dry venting is for the birds bad news man bad news, we want water at the base of every stack help keep things cleaner, smelling nice, Oh yeah.

Experience is Knowing what to do next, Skill is knowing how to do it

They allow dry flat vents in your code? IPC doesn't.

How does one clean your vent when it fills with feces?
