I'm a scientist in Colorado. I bought my first house, a 1950s ranch-style house, in February 2012.

@bcworkz, I think you're right if the trap stays above the floor: 2009 IPC 906.2: "Venting of fixture drains. The total fall in a fixture drain due to pipe slope shall not exceed the diameter of the fixture drain, nor shall the vent connection to a fixture drain, except for water closets, be below the weir of the trap." But what if the trap is below the floor?
