If you think about it the wet vent actually makes some sense.

It only handles bathroom group fixtures.

The piping is oversized.

For example a vented lav is 1 DFU so your drain is 1.5 min.

Lets say I add a tub on that lav now we have 3 DFU I must bring the pipe up to 2 inch then we get the toilet it of course is 3 inch.

Flush the toilet and we need air.... It gets it off the lav vent.

Lets say lav gets blocked

Lav no longer drains so you know to snake it and reopen your vent.

I thought it was weird also. We vented all fixtures 20 years ago.. But after all this time it does work...

horizontal or vertical they are all vented at some point, we use the wet vent and the wet bend? we also use re leaf venting in situations like this. also depends on the specs of the pump.

I just enforce it bro. I did not write it... Before Ohio adapted this code all fixtures had a vertical vent...

I just can't wait until we do the Philadelphia stack vent thing.... I heard that is the next one they plan to add..
