Drain Pipe Turns


I was at one of my customers job sites and saw these drain pipes in the floor and was wondering how they passed inspection. I thought after 135*, a clean out was required. Tis has 360* of turns.

Just posting this for my own knowledge. What happens on a job site, stays on a job site.

This is a restaurant BTW.

It wouldn't pass my inspection because of the short radius 90s much less the other screw ups. And I ain't even a plumber, just plumbed a lot of pipe better than that.

135* is Upc. I cant speak for other codes.

We use "combination waste & vent" when traps are too far for conventional venting methods....

The change in direction would usually apply to a main not a branch arm, and yes those turns are extremely short would not pass under my code, that whole set up looks fishy. looks like some of it may end up in the slab.??

Looks to be just below.
Is it not supposed to be embedded in the concrete?

Looks like you hired day laborers from your local supply store. I can't think of another way to say it.

Not me.

This is not one of those"it happened to my friend" stories, ha.

Just checking if I pegged something that wasn't done right and I believe it's not. It passed inspection though some how.

They look like back water valves. Stop waste water from coming back.

I am curious to find out why they poured the floor then cut out for the plumbing? Or is this plumbing to fix problems?
