Water closets, bathtubs, showers and floor drains within one (1) or two (2) bathroom groups located on the same floor level and for private use shall be permitted to be vented by a wet vent. The wet vent shall be considered the vent for the fixtures and shall extend from the connection of the dry vent along the direction of the flow in the drain pipe to the most downstream fixture drain or trap arm connection to the horizontal branch drain. Each wet-vented fixture drain or trap arm shall connect independently to the wet-vented horizontal branch drain. Each individual fixture drain or trap arm shall connect horizontally to the wet-vented horizontal branch drain or shall be provided with a dry vent. The trap to vent distance shall be in accordance with Table Only the fixtures within the bathroom groups shall connect to the wet-vented horizontal branch drain.

The drain inlet shall be so located that it is at all times in full view. Traps for floor drains, floor sinks, funnel drains, area drains, catch basins and receptors within a building discharging to a vented horizontal soil or waste pipe are exempt from the provision requiring individual vents for each trap, provided that the trap arm, or distance from the trap to the vented horizontal soil or waste pipe to which it discharges, measuring the developed length, does not exceed the maximum distances as shown in Table , and that the branch waste pipe from the trap connects to a soil or waste pipe which is vented with a pipe having a diameter not less than that which would be required to vent a floor drain, floor sink, funnel drain, area drain, catch basin and receptors, computed on the units allowed in Tables 7-3 and 7-5. Common vent sizing shall be the sum of fixture units served, but in no case smaller than the minimum vent size required for any fixture served or as determined from Table 75 whichever is larger. Exception: Floor sinks installed to receive the discharge waste from sinks may be individually vented. Trap arms shall not exceed distances as per Table Priming of traps for above vented floor sinks are not required Location Each grease interceptor shall be so installed and connected that it shall be at all times easily accessible for inspection, cleaning, and removal of the intercepted grease. A gravity grease interceptor complying with IAPMO Z1001, shall not be installed in any part of a building where food is handled. Location of the grease interceptor shall meet the approval of the building official. 8
9 CHAPTER 11 STORM DRAINAGE General Where Required. Roofs, paved areas, yards, courts, and courtyards, vent shafts, light wells, or similar areas having rain water, shall be drained into a separate storm sewer system, or into a combined sewer system where a separate storm sewer system is not available, or to some other place of disposal satisfactory to the Authority Having Jurisdiction building official Testing Testing Required. New building storm drainage systems and parts of existing systems that have been altered, extended, or repaired shall be tested as described in Sections or to disclose leaks and defects Methods of Testing Storm Drainage Systems. Except for outside leaders and perforated or open-jointed drain tile, the piping of storm drain systems shall be tested upon completion of the rough piping installation by water or air, and proved tight. The Authority Having Jurisdiction building official shall be permitted to require the removal of any cleanout plugs to ascertain whether the pressure has reached parts of the system. One (1) of the following test methods shall be used: Water Test. After piping has been installed, the water test shall be applied to the drainage system, either to the entire system or to sections. If the test is applied to the entire system, all openings in the piping shall be tightly closed except for the highest opening, and the system shall be filled with water to the point of overflow. If the system is tested in sections, each opening shall be tightly plugged except for the highest opening of the section under test, and each section shall be filled with water, but no section shall be tested with less than a ten (10) foot (3,048 mm) head of water. In testing successive sections, not less than the upper ten (10) feet (3,048 mm) of the next preceding section shall be tested so that no joint of pipe in the building (except the uppermost ten (10) feet (3,048 mm) of a roof drainage system, which shall be filled with water to the flood level of the uppermost roof drain) shall have been submitted to a test of less than a ten (10) foot (3,048 mm) head of water. The water shall be kept in the system or in the portion under test for not less than fifteen (15) minutes before inspection starts; the system shall then be tight at all points Air Test. The air test shall be made by attaching an air compressor testing apparatus to any suitable opening after closing other inlets and outlets to the system, forcing air into the system until there is a uniform gauge pressure of five (5) psi (34.5 kpa) or sufficient pressure to balance a column of mercury ten (10) inches (254 mm) in height. This pressure shall be held without introduction of additional air for a period of not less than fifteen (15) minutes Exceptions. Where circumstances exist that make air and water tests described in Section and Section impractical, see Section CHAPTER 13 HEALTH CARE FACILITIES AND MEDICAL GAS AND VACUUM SYSTEMS Updated to the Medical Gas Vacuum Systems provisions of the NFPA Edition.
