kitchen sink stack


hows this ?

nothing is glued. and i need to get another elbow for where it comes out of the wall. i thought i bought more of them, but somehow i didn't = breaking my own rule = buy MORE than you think you need.
anyway. everything has at least a slight downhill flow.
and the cleanout, should that be turned up some ?

also. i need to connect to a steel pipe for the roof fitting. would a fernco be ok ?
how far out of the wall should each fitting be ?

Looks fine, add nail plates, stub out the trap arm centered under one of the sink drains- preferably not the one with the disposal. this will make your continuous waste configuration a breeze when setting the sink.

If your sink has 2 bays make sure your drain is offset to center of one of the bays. And nail plate. I honestly would not have a clean out. Its easy enough to remove the tubular trap and snake. Your top plate and bottom plate on the wall need 4 by 8 nail plates for code reasons.

oh. i took out the pipe that was the old vent. it was COMPLETELY plugged with muck.
tree junk loves to cover my property. if i left the opening on the roof open, i know as a fact that the vent would get plugged in the future. i am thinking about some kind of hat for it. what do you think ?

What we were saying about the drain is to offset it so it centers under a basket strainer for a two compartment sink. If you use a single bowl- you can center it.
This makes the final connect go smooth without off setting under the cabinet.

Nail plates are heavy gauge metal. Keeps drywall fasteners from penetrating the pipe.
You should use structural plates at the locations Ghost referred to. This re-enforces your framing members
