Help with basement venting: is this a vent line?

Posted by lucaslc (My Page) on

I'm thinking about finishing up my basement, but not sure where to get access to the vent stack.

After looking through the basement, I found this capped pipe (2" or 2 1/4") sticking out from the basement ceiling, does this look like the "Future Vent" that I should tap into for basement venting? If so, can I directly connect my basement toilet vent line to this pipe?

Judging by location, this pipe seems to come down from wall between my kitchen and first floor bathroom.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
