Adding basement bar sink


Hey guys question for you. I am finishing my basement and wanting to add a bar sink that is 7 feet from the dwv stack that I need to tap into (standard kitchen sink style) but the only problem is when I cut the 3" dwv stack and added a fernco wye the 2" sink drain pipe is 21" from the ground. I cannot get it any lower because the dwv clean out is in the way. Because the sink will be 7 feet from the dwv stack I will have to add 2" to the height of the sink drain so it will be 23" coming out of the wall. Any thoughts on what I should do to get the sink drain pipe around 18" and keep the clean out?

A picture would sure help---Often bar sinks use a sump box and pump ---with one of those you don't need to worry about the height of the drain ---

post a picture---Is the old stack iron or PVC?

Raise the cleanout then put in a sanitary-tee at the lower location where the clean out use to be.

Im sure your setup is similar to mine.

DOn't use a wye to go from horizontal to vertical. Use a sanitary tee

You haven't mentioned a vent. You'll need it- the drain stack will not pass as a vent.
Also, don't use a fernco wye. Use an actual san. tee fitting instead

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I guess there is no way to make it work the way I have it now so I will have to cut out the clean out and put my San-tee where the clean out is currently. I have uploaded some pics so you guys can see. The fernco San-tee is currently 21" o.c. I misstated in my original post and said wye but I actually have a San-tee ( new to plumbing but learning a lot). As far as venting I was going to use an AAv vent (cheater I know but this is not a permit job and I think it will suffice just fine).

That fernco fitting your trying to use is not approved for use under the IPC.

The lack of vent also doesn't help. But it's your house I can't smell it from my house.

When you decide to do it correctly let us know.
