    Just as important is exactly how each of the drain and vent connections are made. We would need to see your plan to verify if it were correct or not.

    I tried to figure out your plan there, but I'm not seeing it. We have to submit an isometric plumbing drawing as a precursor to obtaining a plumbing permit. It's easy to look at an isometric and see what the plan is.

    One fixture's drainage cannot flow past another fixture's drain connection unless it they are vented first.

    I see drains flowing downward, but no vent going up.

    From the point where a fixture's trap arm starts, there can be no more than 1/4" per foot of grade between the trap and it's vent.

    the vent going up and out is pic 2, it runs under floor area about a foot than straight up and out roof, its 3 inch pipe,
    so the 2 inch drains can not run into 3inch drain with out a vent first is what im doing wrong correct ?
    also the 3inch has just a little more than 1/4 inch drop ? will i have to fix that to a perfect 1/4inch drop as well? ( in the pic i have not connected the pipe yet)
    and as well my tub has a pee trap running under the floor truss ,is the ok?

    i will work on a drawing as i fig all this out for you .
