main floor bathroom addition question

Hi there just a quick question!!

I'm looking into adding a bathroom on my main floor, and the only thing holding me back at this point is the plumbing, I can do all the other work myself!

Is it up to code to tie into my existing stack at its clean out with a Y and include a new clean out for my new toilet. I'm going to redo my shingles this summer so ill install a new vent for the bathroom at that time, just trying to figure out this toilet situation, i can hammer the slab if this is not possible, but just trying to figure out the easiest way that's up to code.

I live in ontario

Re: main floor bathroom addition question

You can probably extend the line- assuming it's properly sized and graded.
Generally speaking, the clean out cannot be used as a drainage fitting. Cut it out and add it at the end of the new line. Or in the case of a stack, move it above or below the new branch
