    Thank you cacher_chick. I wish I could decide what fitting to use on the vertical stack but it's cast iron including the santee and it is quite inaccessible. I looked up that side inlet fitting...

    Does that latest layout look like it will work? The more I think about it the more I think the shower vent might have to move to either the shower trap arm or just upstream of the wye connection to...

    Version 2. I think this will work and I might even be able to safely reduce the venting and drain to 1.5" upstream of the shower drain connection and vent. The only thing I'm concerned about is...

    Thank you everyone for the input. HJ, this is under 2x10 floor joists so I have some leeway. The joists run parallel to the run from the closet flange to the shower wye.

    Added another pic with some dimensions. This is quite a large bathroom. Ontario, Canada for code requirements. Another note, I'll use a 3-3-2 santee for the vent connection. Didn't have one...

    Bath Group rough-in

    Does this look correct? As I understand it I can wet vent a single bath group through a 2".

    If it makes any difference (or if it's a good idea) I can very easily continue the 3" back to where...
  7. Shower drain fitting has pulled away from pipe - no access to plumbing

    This is in a cottage and there is no way to get to the plumbing underneath the shower. I can see it but I can't get to it (insanely tight crawlspace)

    It's a problem. My guess is that is has been...

    Thanks guys. I'm leaning more towards DonL's pic (haha) but after some digging I guess this is a common tap offset for clawfoot tubs. I found this and ordered it. ...

    Jerome - thank you very much - the inspector agrees! Good to go. He mentioned something about 5' being good. I imagine it's that the shower drain/wet vent connects to the 3" horizontal run within...

    Interesting

    Thanks very much for the input. I guess I'll have to run it by the inspector. I'm located in Ontario and I'm not sure what our code is. I guess it's close enough to not get laughed or yelled at!...

    Basement rough in - does this look OK?

    I'm hoping to keep this simple and I think the drawing has all the info. The 2" shower vent will continue out the roof and the 1-1/2" vents from the lav and laundry will tie together 5' up, and...

    That should put you in touch with the right agency locally. They will come out and mark for free I think.

    What is the distance from the top of the sink tailpiece to the ABS when you mock it up? Is it possible that you have enough room to create a small jog with two 45deg fittings? Or two 22.5s ??

    It sounds like you're willing to convince yourself that it's OK to put it under the floor so go ahead and do it. It will probably be fine.

    Our neighbour had it done last year for $800 if I remember correctly. This was with a french drain to disperse the water. I thought it was an amazing price and was surprised.
