    Default Plumbing Map

    Hey there, I've updated the diagram from a previous thread, I'm hoping you can answer a few questions:

    1) In the diagram below, where the tub vent reaches the Tee before connecting back to the main stack, can I use a sanitee or should it be a sloping tee (or other)?
    2) Should the shower and the tub drain into a sanitee(s) or something else?
    3) Does the toilet have to drain to a longer elbow, or can i use a standard 90 elbow?
    Thanks,

    You can not use a sanitary Tee on it's side to recieve waste.

    And where is he doing that? The only obvious thing is that the vent MUST connect back into the stack 6" higher than the RIM of a lavatory/toilet, OR 42" above the floor, whichever is higher.

    I guess I was assuming the lav, tub and allthat other mess was but yes, the diagram is a total mess.

    Maybe someone should offer a short lesson on isometric drawing.

    nhmaster, I'm starting to think you're a 'glass is always half empty' kind of guy, you are impossible sometimes, i never labeled the diagram as isometric, they top down and front view(cross section for pre-meds)!

    sorry, it's not 3D, the toilet is a straight run from the toilet to the stack, what you are seeing is that the shower is draining/venting behind the toilet run.

    hj, thanks, the drawing is obviously not to scale, I guess I'll have to go get my masters in isometric drawing. But the 2" sani-tee as in the VENT scenario for the tub/shower is ok?

    Thanks!
