Why not just add an access panel in the drywall to cover it up?

Ya gotta weigh the work required to figure out a way around it versus cutting pipe and rebuilding it properly. When you've got a wall open like this I'd say the latter is a much better idea...

Ya know, I have 'never' made that mistake....nope, not me......



And, yes, they do make male screw in pieces....but PVC is cheap...I think I would cut...and glue on a longer piece and then cut that 'after' the drywall is up.

ok, when you guys say to fix it. are you saying to cut out the wye. or cut out the just the threaded part of the wye ? and fix from there

yeah, that is on the "plan" list. the issues isn't the drywall. it does stick out about flush with the DW. its the cabinet that will be the issue. i would like to have it out far enough, so that in the event of using it, a pan can be placed under it.

if you glued the threaded coupling straight into the wye....then I would just pull the cap...and screw in a male threaded coupling....and if it's long enough....glue another female into the male end....

I believe they call that a threesome....

Cut out the wye, glue in a new one with enough extension to get you the room for a pan and finish it out with the screwed clean out. Do not glue in the threaded plug, if that's what you meant before. It's threaded for a reason.

You'll probably need at least one slip/repair coupling if not two to replace the wye, depends on how much movement there is on the pipe the wye is in.

Use a clean out cover plate and leave it as it is.
If your sink ever backs up- you'll probably pull and drain from the trap first, then cable through the 90. Those clean outs on the arm are hardly ever used

Instead of an access panel I usually put up a (fake) wall vent. It looks functional but is easy to remove if you need to get to the cleanout.
