Plumbing drain / vent help

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys,  plumbing newb here, like I really don't know much at all.  So anyway, I'm going to refinish my basement and am planning something but need to know how to do it and still meet code.  I have a stud wall with the plumbing drain / vents that was roughed in for a bathroom when the house was built.  What I'd like to do is add a wet bar sink on the other side of the wall from where the bathroom sink will be.  The rough-in has one T coming off of it.  Is there a way I could connect both sink drains to this T and still meet code?  I'll include a picture for reference.  I appreciate any and all help I can get.

P.S. - I'm in MN

Since nobody smarter than me has replied, here goes.  I think you would be ok. You just need a vent within so many feet of the drain.  Think of a kitchen double sink, or even a double sink and a dishwasher all going into the same drain, and only one vent.  

In my house, the sinks, the dishwasher, and the clothes washer all go into the same vertical drain, with the washer in the basement.

Are you talking your sanitary line or your vent line? That size will be sufficient for meeting code. i am assuming its either a 1-1/2 or 2" sanitary/vent line.. Both of which sizes would accommodate what you are looking to do.

A bar sink & lavatory is only 1 DFU "drain fixture unit" each your max you can do on an 1-1/2" line is 2 and on a 2" sanitary line it would be 6..

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
