That's weird I suggest you look up the DFU load for a KS under the IPC then tell me what the actual load 1.5 inch horizontal is allowed to carry. I need the code section. I was a plumber for 28 years my friend. I'm not a noob or handyman like yourself.

Kitchen sink, domestic with food waste grinder and/or dishwasher 2 1
1.5 is the trap size DFU is 2.

TABLE 709.1
DRAINAGE FIXTURE UNITS FOR FIXTURES AND GROUPS
The code section IPC


Your next funny number you will find here
TABLE 710.1(2)


Check out 1.5 inch pipe and total DFU on horizontal branch
It's 3DFU


Do you need the Definition of a horizontal branch also?

So as an inspector of 12 years now I will let you in on a little secret. I inspect exactly by the book. I do not invent code. I read the code and enforce it verbatim. And 1.5 inch for a KS is the minimal code. I would pass that since it meets the code. Other **** inspectors may not but they are enforcing their wishes NOT THE CODE.

since you dont know who I am, that comment you can stick somewhere...so were you a licensed plumber for 28 years? and if you dont work in an area its hard for you to state what is or is not code..I wont tell you how to plum in ohio and you can do the same for here..

You also are no help at all on these Forums. NONE!
The IPC Code does not change by state.

I'll even bet you have no license from any state.

Hey Ghost,

I'll get those drawings of the first floor bathroom and kitchen to you sooner than later. My plumber should be stopping by within the week to confirm everything. If he doesn't stop by the weekend, I am going to start running the pex supply lines to the second floor.

I will keep you posted.

Pat

1.5 inch on the trap and the vent. 2 inch on the drain. Always have a stack clean out if it drops to a basement floor.

Okay thanks. The stack runs below the floor joists of the first floor. It doesn't run down to the basement floor.

Ghost,

Attached is the drawing of the first floor bathroom. Let me know what you think...

I also need to pick your brain about the washer/vanity run. With that 3" pipe, I am going to have no choice to drill a hole through a 2x8 floor joists which I know isn't allowed...
