    Toilet drain a little low

    So I'm redoing my bathroom, and I roughed in the new toilet drain about 1" above the subfloor, figuring that the concrete backer board + thinset bed + tile would put the finished floor just level...

    I'm roughing in a pot filler, and I'd like the ability to put a water filter on it. My first thought was to rough in two 1/2" stubs in the cabinet above the range - one will be the "input" side that...

    Sounds like you're describing a reducing wye with a street connection. I've personally never seen one, but a cursory Google search shows that they do exist, and are known as "street wyes" (feel free...

    This particular drain is for the roof of a 2 story extension off the main house (which is 4 stories). But it's part an attached townhouse, so there are neighboring buildings whose windows could be...
  8. UPC 2009...

    UPC 2009 states that all storm drains connected to a sewer line should be trapped:



    And its definition of "Storm Drain" is:



    Granted, I take your point that it's basically being vented...
  9. How soon can the vent from a roof drain trap go horizontal?

    I am replacing a storm line running to a roof drain, and it currently has no trap and connects directly to my main sewer line (combined sewer and storm lines are very common in my area). As long as...

    Vertical Wet Venting Question

    Is the following wet venting permissible under UPC?

    I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but thought I'd check with the experts just in case, since it would make my life easier.

    I am by no means an expert, but I see many things wrong here.
    -Your standpipe (if you can call it that) has no trap.
