    I would love to do that, but I can't bring the drain back out of the wall any further to the left. The only path to the basement is through the cabinet floor and the cabinet to the left is a drawered...

    Okay... I hope this iterative process is getting somewhere.

    Wash it and drain it well and you should be fine. If you are still concerned, let it dry for a few minites (chlorine evaporates).

    I think I have fixed the venting issues in the basement and worked around the beams and support columns. The "useless" vent was removed and the lower sinks vented in a more conventional manner...

    So the transition from the HORIZONTAL 3" to the VERTICAL 4" need to be a Wye and not a Sanitary Tee?

    Does each need to be explicity tied to one of the RED vent lines, regardless of its distance? Both traps are less than 5' from the vents on the 3" horizontal.

    Would rolling them 22.5 (if I have...
