I am planning on finishing my basement which will include a 3/4 bath. My house is less than 2 years old and is roughed in with shower, toilet, and sink drains.

There is another PVC pipe nearby that I think is the vent for the toilet and shower. It is a 2" verticle pipe that sticks up just above the floor. It has a flange on it and has a cap scrwed into it.

However, it is located right next to the incoming main waterline (about were I would expect a cleanout access to be).

I do have two main waste drain lines (one on each side of the house) that go into the basement floor. Each of these drain lines have a Tee in it by the floor with a cap on the Tee. Are these the cleanouts than?

Any ideas on what it is or how to verify if it is a vent for the shower/toilet. Could it be designed as a wet vent?
