Venting Question - Basement Bath

Plan is for a 3 piece bath, rough-in already done. I'm pretty confident in how the venting needs to be set up...hopefully someone can let me know if I'm missing something.

one question I have is whether the rough-in vent pipe from the floor is tied into both the shower and the toilet. Just the toilet? Just the shower?

My terrible drawing is below. I've also included another angle of the bathroom for reference.




thanks!

Hello.

Thats a drain for a tub not a shower I am sure...

Yes the sink and tub vent get tied together as you show... They connect together 36" min above the flood plain of the sink....

Very nice....

That main vent in the ceiling looks huge... I wonder why?

lawrosa,

I've confirmed that the drain line in the floor for the tub/shower is a 2" line. I'm going to need to break up the slab a bit to allow me to plumb for a center-drain 48" shower insert. This will also allow for my p-trap too.

As for the vent line in the ceiling; it's also 2". The angle of the picture does make it look gigantic. Is that a sufficient to use? Looks like most of the vent lines are 2" so I assume I'm okay there.

Thanks!
