    Thanks. I guess a contributing factor is that it is draining into PVC into the crawl space. The entire bathroom including plumbing was justed remodeled- cast iron was replaced with PVC.

    The Kohler technical specs don't indicate the size of the output hole on the diverter. Based on your question, it sounds like that would factor into the water pressure question - correct?

    The trim to be installed does not fit on that valve. The trim is the Stillness series.

    Thanks for the speedy responses. Should I use an upside down sanitary cross (if that's what it's called) and join the toilet vent(left) to the lavatory vent(center) and the shower vent(right)?

  18. Follow-up question

    Thanks Mark. Do you mean the 60" distance rule doesn't apply in Indiana? That's why I came up with the second reconfiguration.

    Question for all: Should I just bite the bullet and run the vent...

    Thanks Terry.

    I hear what you are saying, I don't want to do a shabby, non-compliant job - not my style.
