Kitchen drain
Hey Ron, hope your around!

I have a 2 inc pipe running on the right side of a window in the kitchen where I want to install my new kitchem drain. Its cast iron, and I am going to cut it, and replace it with sch 40. I have to use this pipe as drain as well as vent. My sink will be about 2 1/2 ft left from this pipe, how far up do I do the vent? Also can you draw a little skecth for me, and the pipes I need to do this? Thanks Ron.

Is this what you want to see? That is a San-Tee 2" x 2" x 1-1/2"

Thanks Ron, everything in the bathroom worked out lovely!!! I did a test on the tub drain today, and no leaks, and tub couldn't drain any faster! I also ran 3/4 inc water lines to both hot and cold as you recommended, and I got very good water pressure up there. Thanks so much for all your help!:thumbup:

Like to see some finish pictures when you get time to take and post them

Good hear it truned out great.

Thats exactly what I was looking for, I will then have to use a 90, since its running from stack to the left about 2 1/2 feet, then it has to come out of the wall to hook up a p trap. So I am looking at a san tee 2 X 2X 1 1/2, then a 1 1/2 90, then a 1 1/2 p trap?

Yes correct.

Whirpool Drain
Hey Ron, my whirpool drain has an extended tail piece that threads inside the drain assembly, fine thread. I just screwed it on and tested for leaks and didn't get any leaks. Should I remove it and put at least two turns of teflon tape on the threads, just in case? What to make sure, before I close the ceiling up!:laughing: Thanks

Yes that or pipe dope.

helpless handyman 11-27-2006 07:33 PM

Okay Ron, can I use Real Tuff Pipe Dope? The thread on the pipe is very fine. Thanks

Should do fine.
