    There is a simple test to see if the kitchen sink if vented; Fill it with water and pull the drain plug. If air bubbles back out of the drain its not vented properly. If it drains well and fast, then you are vented. Tubs generally are self venting. Toilets are usually close enough to the main stack to be vented through the stack.

    Do all the pipes disappear into the walls or do the go through the cabinet base into the floor?
    I've never seen the vent pipes run down to the basement .
