Double wye? You mean Ty

I wasn't referring to anything in the pics. Just mentioning it since most helpers get beat by right angle drills and end up with crooked ass holes.

Looks good. I have no issues with the stacked santees for the side by side lavs. Granted it's wet venting but only 2" are wet vented. And for future drain cleaning its a good set up.

I was trying to think of a different way to do it in order to have both trap arms at the same height and you would have to have two individual continuous vents re-vented into themselves above the FLR and tying back into the stack with a combo. It would be more piping and work to only accomplish having them at the same height and no wet venting. I don't think the extra work would be worth it. Looks good. Nice and straight.

Not just helpers! Some j-men & masters can't drill for **** either. I worked with a guy we nick-named "dead-eye Dick" because he couldn't drill a straight hole to save his mother's life!

That nickname sounds like it would be on a Garbage Pail Kids card.

Around here that is called a common vent, not a wet vent. Legal either way.
Looks good. I've seen guys 5 years in that can't make it look that neat. Keep it up and pay attention.
