Are you guys required to test all that?

Looks good, knowing how to install pipe plumb, straight and level puts you ahead of the game IMO.

He came and looked it over before inspection and liked what he saw.. I should say I have waters all roughed in, but took pics day before I roughed all that in, and don't have pics of sinks . I'm bad at taking pics , and don't always think about posting to here. Lol I'll take more next week with everything tied in and ready for finish.
That won't pass in ky,you have several tees and crosses turned backward on your vents,all vent fittings and pipe have to keep an upward flow,also it looks like some of it is overloaded

The only vent fitting backwards to my knowledge is the 2" cross . That pipe chase has a 90 on it and goes up at the wall at the end of the picture.. It just wasn't tied in on this pic. I did the math on DFU, 2" can carry all of these fixtures for 150'.. I then tied it in to a 3" vent that extents to VTR.
I do admit the cross upside down, it's actually the first time I have used one for venting.

In the same pic where cross is backward on vent,look over to the far right,it looks like a floor drain vent goes up and 90's over into a tee that is also turned backwards for a vent fitting,like everyone said,it will work just fine,it just looks amateurish with fittings turned wrong way,but it does look really good for third yr. good lookin job,congrats,also if it passed rough in I would just leave it

Looking good overall.

Besides the cross tee 180 degrees out, the floor drain vent tee on the right of the second picture is also 180 degrees out. I am the same, I most likely if these were the only two items I would pass it and just do an FYI to you.

Nice work as stated for a 3 year.

Looking at it a little closer (though from the angle of the pic it's really hard to tell), I think a few of vent tees are backward.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I do see some of the tees you guys were talking about. I'll have to pay closer attention next time.
On a side note I found out I really don't like propress... Did my best to make everything level and straight while connecting all my waters in that chase... Couple of joints kicked as I pressed and I'm not happy with it... But that's all my company really does now.. So guess I'll have to get used to that.. Any tips for propress out there? I like my stuff to look as professional as possible.. Found it difficult the more turns and connections I made..

We all make mistakes while learning, overall like other said looks good for straight and level clean, really surprised your inspector or foreman did not say anything about backwards fittings.

Here in Wisconsin, it isn't "code" to have them go with flow for venting. It's just proper practice. Foreman only comes around at end of day, looks at it quick, then leaves.
I will work on the fittings going properly with flow. Try to do things as professional as possible. It's great to hear you guys say it looks good for a 3rd year. I want to get to a point of it just looks good. But that comes with experiences like this. Thanks guys
