    Main Line: 4 inch
    Toilet: Vented with a 2 inch rolled wye
    Sink: Vented with a 2 inch sani-tee
    Shower: Vented with a 2 inch rolled wye

    It works, although I am not sure if it is how I, or other plumbers, might have done it. The 2" flat shower vent would not pass inspection in most areas, and the toilet's vent could also be suspect.

    Thanks for geeting back to me. The shower vent was going to rolled again. How would you do this?

    How I would do it would depend partly on how far the main line is below the floor, and the distances between the various fixtures. Just "rolling" the vent does not eliminate it from being a flat vent, it just minimizes how much stuff is going to get into it.

    You could wet vent the shower with the lav if it's within five feet.
