combo tee-wye fittings


Quick question....when can you use a combination Tee Wye fitting? Also, if I wanted to add a double sink in bathroom can I run a WYE to tie both drains into rather than run each sink with a separate drain?

I know there is such a thing- but no one in my neck of the woods uses that terminology. It's either a tee, a wye, or a combo around here.
I also know how to use a little bit of punctuation when posting

i've had to learn different termimology a few times moving from state to state. a combo is a wye+1/8th bend sometimes one piece and sometimes a wye with an 1/8 bend glued in. the the regular wye and last a sanitary tee but sometimes called a ty depending on where you live.

In general-
Tees in drainage can only be used in the vertical
Wyes can be used vertical & horizontal.

Impossible to go over all scenarios but eplumber said it in general:

In the first diagram below the Wyes are actually combos(which are a wye and an 1/8 bend). SHowing the horizontal to horizontal drainage the eplumber reference. The San-T shows draining from horizontal to vertical. The fitting marked Combo below shows draining from the vertical to the horizontal
