    Default Walk in shower vent/plumbing

    Hi this is my first post and also my first attempt aplumbing J


    I’m renovating a house from the 70s in itself a challenge howeverthe plumbing is all over the place
    Im taking it room by room and im currently converting thedownstairs bathroom to a shower room, my question is “how best to vent thesystem out”
    I have attached pic of the arraignment however there is nodirect vent from the sink or shower to the outside vent stack so was wonderingwhat needs doing ?

    Thanks in advanced

    On your attached sketch it shows the basin, WC and shower all going to the outside stack and venting to atmosphere. There is no problem with this. Just make sure pipe sizes are correct, lengths are not to long without AAV's and the correct fall is achieved and as long as I am reading your sketch correctly its fine.

    Hi John

    Thanks for the reply, good to know I'm on the right track

    Would a strap on boss be exceptable to join the shower pipe onto the main pipe I have running from the loo just past the bend ?

    As the shower waste looks like it will be coming into the soil pipe from above a strap on boss will be fine.

    Just be careful about traps emptying because of the flush on the toilet
    IMPORTANT:
    Carbon Monoxide can be produced when ANY fuel is burnt, including oil, gas, wood and coal.
