Question about PVC Saddle Tee
 
I want to tap into my 3" PVC sewer pipe with a 2" vent pipe on one spot and then a 1-1/2 drain for a shower on another section. I'm comfortable with using a saddle T for the vent pipe but not sure if the solvent/clamp type of saddle T is acceptable for actual waste/grey water.

Advice?

Are you sure you got this right, 2" vent with a 1-1/2" drain for shower. Here we must drain showers with 2" let us know if you posted correctly.

Your right. I actually have 3 seperate taps but only concerned about two that are in very tight spaces. I have a 2" vent and a 2" drain for shower. I have another tap that is a 1 1/2" for a sink but thats easy enough to actually splice into the 3" line.

My concern is more using a saddle T for the 2" drain.

You have to come into your waste line with a wye, a tee can not be laid on it's back.

If the pipe is accessible cut the pipe and do what you need and reconnect with a hubless repair union or 3" rubber union.
