Vent Pipe Identification

nycpa Member Posts: 108
Can anyone identify if I have a vent pipe from the two pictures I attached.  This is in my basement right under the first floor bathroom and kitchen.  I am thinking the that shower pipe, the white plastic that connects to the red, which splits into two is one of the vent pipes.

    Do both red pipes enter the main stack?  I've seen that setup a few times in homeowners basements.  The trapped line is pitched down towards the main, and that longer red (or shorter white) line is pitched up (or at least level) towards the main acting as a vent for that p-trap.

    Vent Pipe

    I just took a look at it. The longer white with the P trap goes into the sewer drain. The longer red right next to it goes up through the floor. I guess that longer red must be the vent pipe. Can I connect a sewer ejector pump vent to this vent?
