    Here is a better picture of the re-vent on the washer arm. my thinking was that the air would be on top and easily flow upwards this way? Can you clairify with this better picture?
    The other "t's" on the stack are regular T's with no sloping part. Im assuming the sloped part in the middle of the T makes it a sanitee?

    * I would never leave pvc unglued, or unstrapped, hence the "for now"

    The washer trap and trap are should be 2"
    The vents can be 1.5"

    On the trap arm, the wye is pointed so that if any water is poured down the vent, it's directed down the line.

    And then we reverse that on the vents above.

    Take a look at your santee on the upper re-vent.
    That needs to be turned, same as in this photo here.

    I guess you missed my point on dry fitting. Your cut lengths will be too short if you measured and fitted the pipe dry.

    The black pipe you are using is NOT PVC, it is ABS!

    Hey, he will find that out soon enough. You can't dry fit. The pipe and fittings only slide together after the solvent has been applied to hub and pipe and then slid together with a twisting motion.
    Black DWV, ABS, and ABS glue
    White DWV, PVC and PVC glue

    Sorry Im an electrician, I guess my terminology is off. I understand that these fittings will not be fitted all the way with my dry fitting them. I dont see it being a problem other than my attachment to the existing vent, everything else has some movement to make sure its all fitted together.? I feel like im missing something here. This doesnt seem all that different from Electrical conduit pvc i run,.

    Also i did measure my cuts to the back of where they will be fully seated in the bell ends of each piece, so once glued and fully seated they should be right where they need to be

    I see what you are talking about with the upper sanitee on my re-vent, I totally missed that...makes sense though with that orientation
