Sink, toilet, tub..vent drain.


Introduce myself:
I an new to this site, from Maryland, and have been an electrician for 6yrs.

I am getting ready to plumb in for my tub and sink...and just have a few questions.

First....this trap was already installed under slab....does this mean I don't need to install a trap for shower?


Second....I need to do plumbing for the vanity. On the picture is some questions...if it is unclear, please let me know and I will try and clarify

Thanks in advance,
Jeff


Just wanting to know if I am correct or way out in left-field

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

Are you sure that trap is for a shower? It appears to be inline with the 2" vent (where the wall should be). Makes me wonder if its the tub trap.
Where is the tub trap? Or are you wanting to use this trap for tub?

Sorry meant to say tub drain...yes it is in line with the 2" vent...I framed out the walls off of the toilet drain (12" to center) which put the outside of the wall 1/2 off of vent pipe.

I'm assuming you want the lav to the right of the toilet- On the 2" vent, cut in a 2 x 1.5 san tee at the height needed for your lav, arm over horz. with 11/2" and stub out at lav location. This horz. trap arm length is 30" max. per my area's code. While you have the 2" cut open for installing the tee, pour some water down the trap. You should see it drain into the 2" vertical vent. If so, that means the 2" vent serves the toilet, tub and now your lav.
