Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


Tks Javilies, I understand that, the industry I am in is like that as well, seems like anytime you deal with any regulations that the gov't is involved in its more of a good luck situation.

When I was young I was fortunate to help out my grandfather and others building houses, moving houses all sorts of crazy stuff, even did a little cabinet making, but that was too many years ago, but I think it was enough to curse me with the "I wanna do it" mentality. Of course that bites me in the butt sometimes but its all part of the learning process. I'm the type of person that cannot stay idle so I always have a project going on slowly making the old house a bit better as I go.

As far as kiss a plumber, if my plumber looked like that, oh yeah!!!!!

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


Okay I think I have this laid out like I need.

I have the 2" shower p-trap going under shower wall with a 2x2 wye and 45 for vent, then going on to a 3x2 wye to connect to 3" from toilet.

From toilet a 3" flange to a 3" closet bend to a 3x2 wye (slightly rotated) for vent to run back behind toilet and up toilet wall, vent will use 45's until above in ceiling

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


My next question is a cleanout, that hot water heater is going away for a tankless, can I and should I use a wye below the toilet to make a cleanout that I could access by pulling up floor in the closet behind the toilet?

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


The toilet itself is considered a cleanout. I would leave it at that.

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


Your dry flat vent on the toilet is also a code violation. On the picture with the water heater.

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


The one i have drawn in yellow near the closet bend? This is where I got that idea from since I don't have a wall for that vent to go straight up. http://www.diyadvice.com/diy/plumbin...in-vent-lines/

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


Pex? The bathroom is currently plumbed in copper pipe but Pex is allowed here so which would you go with as far as pros/cons?

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


You cannot run any portion of the vent of any fixture below the fixture horizontal at all.

905.4 Vertical rise of vent. Every dry vent shall rise vertically to a minimum of 6 inches (152 mm) above the flood level rim of the highest trap or trapped fixture being vented.

So you need to use a different venting method.

Your DIY reference is not to the IPC.
I'm a plumbing inspector in a IPC state. With 28 years in trade experience as a plumber.

Re: Master Bath Remodel - need some help


Thanks Ghost for clearing that up for me, would the 2" vent on the shower drain line be enough of a vent for it and the toilet, the toilet will be about 6 linear pipe feet away from the shower vent going up through the wall.

Please just draw an isometric of your intent. Your pictures are just confusing me.

In this image it shows the 2" vent for the shower that goes up the wall, where the toilet sits I cannot vent it because it passes under a door and not a wall. The distance from the toilet to the vent on the shower will be about 5-6 feet.
