    DIY Cabin in the woods, drain pipes and venting...
    I am working on my little piece of paradise and getting the plumbing roughed in is coming up fast.

    I have come up with a quick sketch of what I believe to be an appropriate system drawing but if someone could tell be if I get or if I completely misunderstand all this.

    I have not indicated the various traps and what not as of yet, just seeing if my understanding of the drain/vent is okay.

    Here is the sketch:


    Solid lines = 3"
    Dashed lines = 2"
    dash dot dot = 1-1/4"
    green = drain
    cyan = Vent

    Thanks,
    LittleMT

    Am I seeing it right that there is only one vent, and that at the end of the drain?

    That is what I was thinking. Tie all individual vents back to the stack.

    Never mind. I see it now. You are basically venting every drain and tying it all into the stack. I'm no plumber, but I would think that would work fine. There is a plumber on this site who will hopefully chime in here soon.

    Checking your local building codes can be a good guidance, as well as an inspector who will no doubt advise you as you go. Assuming you have a permit for the work and submitted a plan.

    Is this a new build or renovation?

    Thanks for the idea, I will check with the local municipality and see if they can offer suggestions.

    This is new construction outside of the local municipality so there is no permit required. I should have said septic instead of sewer on the drawing.

    Thanks.

    LMT, there is a guy names MassPlumber2008 on this site who is a licensed plumber. I had hoped he would comment, but for some reason he has not. But Tal gave you some good advice that will hopefully prove useful.
