Default Swapping Toilet and Shower and Code??

I'm redoing a bath and want to swap out a shower and toilet.
Currently the toilet is at the end of a horizontal branch drain line and shares a wet
vent with the lavatory sink.

Following is a top view of the current horizontal branch (secondary) drain line of concern which (Y's) into the main line. Both the secondary and main line run
horizontally.

I use the following notation:
L - lavatory drain
WV - wet vent (2 inch) shared by lavatory and toilet
T - Toilet
S - Shower
DV - Dry vent (2 inch)
MAIN - Main Line (3 inch)

Quote:
A top view of the current configuration is:

T -- WV ---- S -- DV -----------| MAIN
By swapping the Toilet and Shower I believe I'm not in code -- OR --
am I reading it wrong "A toilet is required to be at the end of the drain line"??

If not in code compliance, if I run a separate line parallel line to the current line with just the Lavatory and Shower on it and tie it in just before the dry vent , will this put me back in compliance?

No one here knows what your local codes may call for. If it was mine I'd be calling in a licenced plumber to run all the lines then you can finish the rest.

Thanks for response. FWIW our city uses the UPC 2006.

If I could figure out what your post said I could probably give an answer...

How about a sketch of what you have and what you want to do?

Do you have anything ripped out yet? Posting a photo of bathroom might help us as well with the layout
