    I'm trying to avoid some structural work by angling the w/c drain like shown.
    I'm in Los Angeles which is generally governed by the UPC.

    This would pass in Canada, with a couple exceptions. The long sweep 90 on the wc trap arm would have to be 2x 45 elbows. And the wet vented branch would be 2 inch only because the minimum size allowed for a wet vent serving a wc is 2" (In the Canadian Plumbing Code).

    While it's legal, some inspectors want to see a wye/45 combo for the vent stack, instead of the tee.

      It is what I do when I design the tools that y'all use. It's been paying the bills for over 35 years, and seems to work pretty well to cause plumbers to spend their money on things I design.

      We use Solid Edge here.

      Seriously. Just always curious about all aspects that one could venture into. Degrees? Experience?

      Thanks.
