The first floor plumbing is all going to get replaced once I finish off the upstairs. I was going to all of the venting to the new main vent...

The plans call for a 4" vent. You think it's okay to run a 3"?

3 " is fine in northern Ohio, but check locally. A mute point if that is getting trashed. Then make sure the toilet vents are all under 40 foot out roof. Increase size 12 inches below roof and 12 inches above roof to your local requirement That is a minimal number more will not kill nothing.

A lot depends on your local requirements. So after we draw this get a blessing before one proceeds.

Just looked at the code book. 4" is way overkill and so is 3" but I will use 3"...

I will update those two sets of isometrics tomorrow.

Thanks Ghost!

This graphic shows the location where the drain pipe leaves the basement wall towards the sewer.

Ghost,

Not sure which option you wanted to use for the washer drain (Option 1 or Option 2)? Here's both.

After the washer box tee you can reduce to 1.5 inch at that point for the lav tee.
You reduce with a 3 by 1.5 inch male bushing on the top of the washer 3 inch tee.

Tying that pan drain into your sanitary is that a local requirement? If so get this gizmo http://www.rectorseal.com/index.php/sureseal/

This will prevent sewer smell when that trap is dry.

You want the washer box usually 40 inches to top off the floor so your shut offs are accessible.

The toilet 2 vent is a sanitary tee on its back must remain vertical.

Now piece it all together... :}

Your shower trap size is 2 inch if you don't use more then 4 heads in that shower.

The tub/shower and shower valve must be pressure balanced and temperature control It also helps if the valve has screw driver stops on the Hot and Cold inlets to the valve.

Individual shower and tub-shower combination valves shall be balanced-pressure, thermostatic or combination balanced-pressure/thermostatic valves that conform to the requirements of ASSE 1016 or ASME A112.18.1/CSA B 125.1 and shall be installed at the point of use. Shower and tub-shower combination valves required by this section shall be equipped with a means to limit the maximum setting of the valve to 120F (49C), which shall be field adjusted in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. In-line thermostatic valves shall not be utilized for compliance with this section.

I would also suggest a scd 40 glue together tub waste with a popup drain seal. They tend to not leak later.

How do we want to tie it together in the basement? Where do you want to put the 3" vent?

Why do you want that one wall to be a 2x6 wall?

I'm looking not seeing any difference. Just go to 1.5 inch pipe size after the washer pick up. Using a 1.5 inch tee for the lav.

As for the drop either is fine. Use the one that does not make you cut floor joist as much.

Put all three together and locate your main stack in the basement. Once through the floor you 90 to the wall of the stack then we run down the wall into your stack.

Post a picture of your basement and the stack itself with best guess where you will be coming down from above.
