my inspectors would fail it for that, they want wyes, no san tees on there backs for anything.

It's a dry vent. If it were a wye on its side and 90 up what's it going to benefit ?

We can't use a tee on it's back even in the attic and it's the last fitting before roof penetration

Some codes are ridiculous.

I looked at it also, and all that I see is he added a coupling near the tub p-trap. Other than that, I am mystified also.

I just noticed the cpvc water lines... I've never actually witnessed a plumber using it for anything other than a condensate drain.

You have 1.5 inch on a wet vent to the tub that is 2 DFU... Under the wet vent sizing table 2 DFU requires 2 inch to the vent. So yes it is an illegal wet vent. (Original Picture)

Now if you want to play with the inspector next time you do this run 2 inch to the tub as you fixed it and 2 inch to the lav as a combination drain and vent.... That will confuse him!

It's also perfectly legal to IPC.

Many of the plumbing companies around here use cpvc. If it were my choice I'd switch to uponor. I'm doing a sewer line right now with foamcore because it's not my choice I would much rather use push pipe.
