I need a 3" wye with 1 1/2" inlets 90 degrees from each other NOT 180*. I will take a pic of where I need to add a vent line and need info on how to do it. Thanks in advance!

379 different fittings here. I did not look through all of them for the one you asked about.

Where ate you cutting a vent in?from the looks of that it wouldn't be legal to cut a vent in there as that stack looks like it catches drains on the floors above

I need to add an 1.5" vent line to the top above all the first floor drains for my Saniplus system. The very top fitting pictured would work fine if it had another 1.5" inlet 90* to the front instead of 180* which would place it towards the block wall. How else can I get a vent line in there?

I'm still not understanding but as far as fittings they make every angle you would ever need.Never have I said I can't finish a job because they don't make a fitting to fit my angle,so pick up some wyes and twyes,90s,45s and 22s and I'm sure you'll get what you need

The vent line you are adding needs to be higher than the flood plane of the highest appliance. which means you have to be above the flood plane the sink that ties into that stack.

i am aware of that, that is why i am asking what I should do. You know how they set up double wye's like \I/ Well I would need one with the 1.5" legs 90 degrees apart from each other, not 180*. How can you not understand this???

What you need to do to do it right, is tie the vent you are trying to establish above the top of the highest appliance/fixture the stack serves, which puts the vent connection in the wall above the point you are interested in.

Ok..I got ya now.youll never find a fitting like that cause there's no need for it.Cut in a single 3 by 1.5" wye and off the branch use a 1.5" wye or twye for the extra branch you are looking for

can I just take that top (top most 1.5" in the pic) and cut that back somewhere along that line and have it wye in the lower part of the stack where I will be installing the saniplus discharge? Then use the now open 1.5" spot in the topmost wye as my 1.5" vent?
