    Does this layout work?
    I'm still having trouble understanding venting.

    The floor drain has no trap, but I designed it
    using a Sure Seal because:

    1) Requires no trap, thus no trap primer to worry about
    2) Easy to remove so the drain can act as a clean out

    Your thoughts?

    Frodo, thank you for your response.

    Can't this be treated as a Waste Stack Vent system (Section 910)
    if the vent is changed to be the same size as the wet vent, ie. 2 1/2"

    Frodo,

    Learning by discussion is very helpful. What is it that you
    don't like about treating it as a Wast Stack Vent system?

    I am a plumber that has installed plumbing using the uniform plumbing code [UPC}
    in that code it is not allowed
    the new international code [IPC} allows all kinds of things that are illegal in the upc
    quite frankly in my opinion the IPC was influenced by building contractors who simply want to build a cheaper house
    and are willing to cut corners to do it

    But hey man, I am also against the use of Auto vents, And believe that a house with more than 2 bathrooms has to have a 4''
    trunk

    The possibility of the lower drains vent being cut off by the upper waste is what chaps my rear end.
