Cleanout Required?


I think I already know the answer......



This is the bottom view of one of master bath sink drains. It's about 6' to the intersection with the 2" line that will go down to the main 3" drain. I can get a clean out on this line...but I'll have to drill a hole in the blocking and put the end of it ouside under the cantilever of the 2nd floor...

My issue is that I have one more like it to install....the drain comes out right next to the PSL beam.....no room behind the cleanout.



Are there any options?

With few exceptions, I am not required to install clean outs above the first floor.
You an put it in the vertical piping above the floor

Ok....that makes sense.....

Hence, if I had an issue...I remove the p-trap and snake from there?

Next question.....does that sink drain pipe need to be 2" or 1 1/2"?

I have 4 items to drain in that area....2 sinks, shower and tub....shower and tub will be 2" all the way to the ground...(and in one pipe).

I was just going to use a sweep T to add the sinks to the 2" line....
