    Smile Inspector says: “The toilet-vent must be upstream of the toilet.”

    I can’t figure out what he wants me to change.

    I plumbed in a toilet flange with no san-tee. I used a 2” wet-vent through the sink drain. I think I did my plumbing correct. I think I just need to explain the plumbing concept to him.



    What should I tell him?

    Talking looks ok for our area

    the toilet looks to be vented in to the
    2 incl line going up off the 2x3 why which
    should be some sort of wet vent......

    unless that line is serviceing the washing machine
    that should be considered a wet vent.. for the toilet

    it dont have to be upstream here

    Default vent

    The vent connection has to be downstream from the fixture's trap, which your's seems to be if we are seeing it properly.

    No,

    The trap arm only drops 1/4" per foot
