Wet vent placement


Hi,

I'm in the middle of a basement half bath drain plumbing and concerned about wet vent placement. Does the placement of the vent, before or after the toilet, make a difference? Would my setup in the attached photo be okay?

Re: Wet vent placement


You can run toilet wet vent or wet vent then toilet Just size the wet vent properly.

Re: Wet vent placement


Thanks for the reply..

The reason for my question is because I've actually already attempted to repipe this a couple times in an effort to get the proper pitch but it just isn't working out, my toilet always ends up to high(almost an inch above the floor). My original photo is what I was going to attempt to do, to swap around the toilet with the sink, to have the toilet closer to the main and maybe achieve a better pitch. The photo I'm attaching now is what I currently have. Debating now wether I should just build up the floor or something. What's normally done in this situation?Wet vent placement-img_0711.jpg

Re: Wet vent placement


Looks like a long turn 90 under the flange? If so, change it to a regular 90.
How about a street 90 or a street flange. Any of these will gain the inch needed.

Re: Wet vent placement


It is a regular 90.. I was thinking of maybe this flange with a 60 street? Is this a common situation? I wonder if this doesn't work, if it would be worth trying swapping the toilet and sink around or just building up the bathroom floor with some kind of cement board?

Re: Wet vent placement


What I added isn't a clean out, it's a half bath in the basement. But the main pipe I connected to with the couplings was 4" cast iron and the couplings were also 4"..
