Hey Folks, I've been browsing around here for a while and there seems to be lots of great advice so I thought I'd jump in with a question.
I'm planning a basement reno and I was wondering what (if anything) the code says about how far a toilet can be from the main stack. I've just drawn up a quick sketch and it looks like the ideal place for the toilet is about 10 ft from the 3" main vertical stack. It dissapears under the slab and I'm not sure what direction it goes from there, so for planning purposes right now I'm just assuming I have to get within a foot of the vertical part. (obviously I would confirm this before building anything)
anyway the green lines are my first rough guess at where the new drains would be placed. Am I in a realistic ballpark here? or is it just too far from the stack? There is a cleanout at the base of the stack oriented at about the 10 o'clock position looking straight down. Would this suggest the sewer line would run back towards kindof the bottom right of the sketch? Which would mean I'd have to re-think my drain situation.
