Thanks for the chart reference. It looks like since a water closet is 3 DFU's, I will need to use a 2" pipe for the dry vent...

you can wet vent if you can meet proper venting for the dfus

but here is the question I have for you, no sarcasm intended....where is the licensed plumber that is going to either pipe or cover you on this job? he should know all this code and advise you, his butt is on the line..?

just for reference here is an expired islip license, it doesnt pay to keep active licenses in all the towns and villages,cost too much unless I have active work there, most reciprocate to where you took your test..when I do work, I dont let the homeowner get involved in the piping ,just the way I and most licensed plumbers are, im in business to make money, not teach plumbing class, nothing personal here, the same goes for friends or relatives..

I understand that, but its double the time to keep track of someone that needs pointers how to pipe, and if im doing that I cant be doing my own work on the job, now if you want to pay for teaching time, but it sounds you are trying to cut costs by doing some of the work yourself, so in the end, no money would really be saved...

Long ago in the past I did what you are trying to do with a friend/customer and it turned into a nightmare for many reasons, and alot of wasted pipe , fittings ,time and lots of hurt feelings and aggravation..never again...lesson learned..
