plumbing/venting


My 4-inch stack pipe for my drain, does it matter how many bends are in it as long as it continously goes up to the roof?

I assume you're talking about your vent- use as few bends as possible, but generally speaking the answer is no

The drain does matter, the vent not so much. As a general practice, the least amount of fittings you use, the better.
