    Default critical distances, UPC

    As the title says, looking for info on what is actually measured to determine those. Check out the drawing.

    Also, UPC is used where I'm building this house. My drain line to the septic tank from the house is 4". I know my total cross sections of all my vents must equal or exceed that of the 4". From the drawing you can see I'm using 2" for my vent from the lavs, but will increase it to 3" before it exits out the roof to help keep it open in winter conditions. So for my total vent calculations, can I use 3" for that vent or do I have to use 2" since that vent is that size for the majority of its run?

    Thanks, Jeff
