    Default Dryer and Bath vent common duct.

    Is it against code to connect the bathroom exhaust vent duct and the laundry dryer vent into a y-fitting then discharge into one common main duct that discharges to the exterior?

    What code?
    Thanks

    It's wrong..

    Look at M1502.2. Dryer exhaust must be independent of any other exhaust.
