In response to Re: improper venting
: : I have a basement bath which works great by itself. Problem is that the washing machine on the first floor sucks the traps dry when it pumps out. Is there a device that I can place in the washer drain line to prevent this, or should I rework the vent system?
: Is the washing machine on the first floor tied into the vent for the bath inthe basement?

The washing machine drains into a 2" line which y's into a 3" line coming from a first-floor toilet. The 3" line is vented about 10' upstream from where the 2" line joins. The basement bath is downstream from where the 2" line joins.
As you can see, I'm not a plumber, but hope this describes the situation.
Thanks,
