new sewer line


hello,

i am seeking validation.

i have built a new addition with a small bathroom.

there is a toilet, shower, and sink.

the toilet goes into a 3" PVC and out to a 3" clean-out. the breather is 2" PVC through the roof and the shower is 2" PVC with a 'P' trap connecting to the 3" PVC right before the clean-out. the sink is a 1 1/2" PVC connecting into the 2" PVC breather 16" up from the floor.

the length of the 3" PVC to the house main 4" 'pipe' is 74 feet.

the 3" PVC goes into a 3" / 4" adapter connected on both sides via rubber boots with SS clamps to the existing 4" prehistoric( black stuff but not metal ) house sewer pipe.

the difference in height from the clean-out to this connection is 2 feet.

have i 'hosed' this as an amateur or did i luck out and understand all the bajillion of "do this's" and "don't" do that's in the code books?

new sewer line


45 degree fittings on the following:

breather into main
shower into maiin
sink into breather
cleanout into main
BR main after the clean-out into the run down to the house line
BR main into the existing house line

straight fittings used for the main PVC going 74 feet ( 10 foot sections )

is used that special purple stuff before i used the special PVC glue

the only connection not glued:

rubber boots and SS clamps where the new BR main connects to the existing house pipe.
