Drain to vent pipe


Hi!!

Simple question. Hope someone can answer real quick.

I am remolding my bathroom and trying to keep it simple.

He is the story, my house is a pre-fab and the person who did the bathroom that I am redoing decided to connect the "T" connector to the vent pipe, which is not the issues, the ass hat off set the "T" to a degree of 80* vs. the normal 90*.

My question is, if I cut out the "T" connector, how do I replace it since I am cutting out the vertical pipe thus removing more pipe then I want to?

Thanks
Chris

use 1 or 2 couplings and pipe to fill in the gaps. Hopefully one end of the pipe has enough play to allow for the couplings. If not, get some shielded couplings, you can fold them back on top of itself so you can slip the pipe in

How far do you need to offset the line? If it's offset slightly like that, sometimes a 1/16th bend can make up the difference.


If you must cut it out, you need a regular solvent weld coupling for the lower portion, and a fernco shielded no-hub coupling. The no hub coupling will fold over itself, giving you enough room to glue the lower coupling, and once the fitting is in place, you can unfold the fernco no hub back over the upper portion of the pipe and tighten the sheild over it. Very easy.
