plumbing advice


Hi there,

doing some remodeling on a house that i have and i was wondering if you guys can find any problems in this plumbing that i've done.

1-pic....it's a toilet on the second story and the 2" vent connects through a y
2nd pic...it's a shower upstairs that connects to a combo T instead of a sanitary T....i was wondering if it's acceptable
3rd pic ---it's a tub upstairs and the 2 inch vent at 3 ft

any inputs are very much appreciated...

Thanks so much

Not really happy about the cut and unreinforced joist in #3.

Bill's right. Joist won't pass code in my area. Maximum 1/3 centre drilled cut I believe

The cut joist in pic #3 is a problem. It needs to be headed out, or sistered.

The wye laying flat is OK around here. This could be a local thing, since alot of guys will raise the wye part up, and use a 45 or 60 to go flat again.

Nothing wrong with the combo in pic #2. When transitioning from horizontal to vertical, a san-tee, combo, or wye is OK. (Combo means combination wye and 1/8 bend BTW).

In pic #3, it appears that the P trap is the drain for a tub or similar fixture. If so, it drains toward the sanitary tee. The sanitary tee is installed backward. The side of the tee must aim with the flow of water.

The problem is pic 3. First the the floor joist and need's to be headered off. 2nd is the sanitary tee is not legal down here for horizontal to horizontal on the drainage system. Only on the vent system. You would have to use and combination wye.
