    The drawing in the book would be better if they had the sink teed into the vent, as it's vent would also serve as a wet vent for the water closet.

    The fittings shown are wrong as the below grade...

    That book is well known to show things that do not meet code in most places.
    The number one offense is that no part of a dry vent can be horizontal for any distance until it is at least 6" above...

    How about a photo of the trap and vent installation?

    You would really need to have a water chemistry test performed to be able to properly deal with it. There is a different forum header here on the website for water treatment issues.

    The sink would not drain properly.

    On many vanities, you could increase the height of the toe kick and trim it out so that it looks fairly normal.

    Regular or braided supply hoses are not approved for such use, but PEX is. Personally, I would just stub up new copper after the tiling was done, and then the shut-offs can be installed under the...

    You have to consider that the pipe must be pitched no less than an inch for every 4 feet, so the chances of hiding more than part of it within the joist space is not good.
  10. If you make the trap deeper, it will not be...

    If you make the trap deeper, it will not be self-scouring and will not drain properly. Your choices are to lower the fitting in the wall or raise the vanity so the sink is higher.

    It looks to me like the inlet in the wall is about the same height as the bottom of the sink. The sanitary tee in the wall needs to be lowered on the stack. A deep sink needs the tee inlet 16-18"...

    I don't know where the 25psi would come into play here, it sounds to me like bad info-- the float valve is the only control.

    A non-bladder style tank is often used to allow iron/air contact...

    The fitting used should be a sanitary tee. You can use 1/8th bends to create an offset in the vent, but the vent is not permitted to fall below 45 degrees until it is at least 42" above the floor.

    You have a challenge in that it might be code legal, but it does not comply with the toilet manufacturer's instructions.
    There are a lot of plumbers who do not install a Toto toilet compliant...

    It is possible that your main line has a belly or does not have enough pitch to effectively keep itself clear. Once it has been cleared, a sewer camera might be telling.

    There is no "right way" to put anything over the top of tile in a shower. Any such method would only be an improper way to make something look better, leaving the future owner to deal with the...

    If your drawing is correct, each fixture needs a vent. The toilet is the only fixture there that is vented.

    There is no snifter.

    If the bleed hole is required it will be specified in the pump installation instructions. Some pumps have it built into the discharge section of the housing.
