I’m like the other guy and wanna know what code you all go by if you don’t vent toilets.
When we say its not vented we mean it doesnt have its own dedicated vent, pretty easy to comprehend if you havent spent your life sniffing pvc cement.

2015 IPC.

My licensed, insured, permit pulling plumbers (3 different ones who don’t know each other) never vent toilets.

When I’ve plumbed my own houses I’ve always vented them but it isn’t required. I’ll do it again next time I owner/build. I also don’t use AAV’s.
