    Hi - How do I vent this bathroom that was roughed in before the house was completed? Same bathroom in all pix, just showing what the room looks like now (we had to cover the studs since the inspector decided the basement was "finished" and he wanted it fire rated). 2" from lav and tub; the...

    Venting for Sink and Shower into Macerator

    I'm adding a bathroom in a recently-enclosed garage. Instead of busting up the concrete and trenching to the septic tank, I'm feeding this into a macerating toilet, which I'll then tie into a nearby line that goes to the septic. My question is about venting. I've roughed in a configuration, but...

    I live in a 4 story condo with drains done in galvanized pipes that turn into PVC within the units. If I add a washing machine and just stick the draining into my existing shower drain that's vented with the galvanized pipes, do I have to worry about venting it?

    Using a Sanitary Tee as Vent directly connected to P-Trap trap?

    First pic shows what I believe would be a standard install. P-Trap + P-Trap elbow, connected to a vent. Second pic shows using a sanitary tee RATHER than the elbow that came with the P-Trap, functioning as both the P-Trap elbow and as the vent coming out the top. Are there any issues with this...
