    Not sure about groundwork venting before I give the OK to pour concrete

    Hello experts and enthusiasts,

    Can anyone please help me double check that my plumber allowed for proper venting? They put in a WC, shower, and sink drains so far. There is only one vent line nearby, presumably to be connected via the sink drain. In reading the code I'm confused between guidelines for wet or dry venting (mine appear to be wet). See picture below. Thanks!

    Argh... I'm too new to post links apparently, how can I show the picture then?? The picture is here:

    Have it inspected. But the sink can act as a common wet vent and qualify so long as the vent line is appropriately sized.

    but I cant see the picture.

    Assuming the plumber is licensed, I assume they know how to do it properly.

    No, this is normal gravity draining. Turns out that the wet vent is OK, thanks for the reply

    Is this considered a "bathroom group", lav wet venting WC and tub/shower that is within certain distances? I am sure codes vary place to place.

    I'm not a pro of course, but that's my understanding, I know technically getting an inspection is the way to go to be 100% sure, but it's not practical for me right now

    What do you mean by "not practical"?

    Probably means there was no permit pulled for the work.
