    vents

    The last two vents at left and right at the bottom won't do the job even on a horizontal system? Are you saying that the vents should be on the 2" going to the 3"? Thanks Terry!

    Awesome. Thank you for your input and your time guys. I would hate to go through all this trouble upgrading only to do it wrong. I will buy the new fittings tomorrow.

    yep

    I see what you are saying. The overall best rule is to have each fixture vented individually. But I know that if you have a toilet that is within 6' of your stack that you don't need another vent. So...

    Thanks for the picture. My problem is that all of these example diagrams are always for 2 story houses. Things change when you have one story and a finished basement. :(

    venting

    But what if the vent stack came directly out of the main 3" line and through the roof? I figured this would maybe fall into the "critical distance" I keep reading about.
