Question Bathrooms Vent

The 2 bathrooms in our house is currently venting directly to the attic. I want to vent them outside through the wall. However, I do not like the look of 2 vent caps on the same wall and close together. Is there anyway to use just 1 vent cap without blowing the air to the other bathroom? Thanks.

As I guess you know, venting into the attic is a no no. your builder should be taken to task

Question Bathroom Vent

Mike: I'm thinking that a Y or T may not work. On a windy day and the flaps on the vent cap may only be partly open. As a result, there may not be enough back pressure from the other bathroom to allow the moist air from the first bathroom to blow outside.
