More space trouble on bathroom waste pipe


Very tight where I'm working...didn't plan on it. Wondering if this pipe is allowed to be used for waste water. Rotate the picture 90 degrees clockwise and I'd like to have the waste go down and meet up with other on the right side from the top. Or could I lay it all on it's side (slightly up) and then go up with a 90?



I have a long sweep that is just too long.



Hope this makes sense.

Do you want to rotate the fitting while its standing up or do you want lay it on its back? And then you want to do what with it? I'm confused How about a drawing. The only way waste water can enter that tee is as shown- through the top or the side. You can not lay a tee on its side or back when used for drainage

What I need to do is join up two 3" waste lines into one 3". One will be coming horizontally and the other will be coming from the top (or I could do side). They will come together and exit horizontally. I imagine I will need to use the long sweep?

You will need to use a wye or the combo you have pictured.
