Shower drain tie in


how do I insert a y-pipe into fixed horizontal drain pipe?
If I cut to much it won't fit tight,
if I don't cut enough I can't get it in.
Can I use a rubber sleeve with two clamps? It will be under the cement when all is done. Will the rubber be ok underground?

In my area a tee on its side is not legal. But yes we put shield bands underground. Do not use the rubber fernco with the 2 clamps, use the shielded ones.

That is not a wye.

Pipe is also to small to accommodate a shower.It would need to be 2 inch pipe at your connection as a minimum.

Hello. It's a 2" pipe, 2" by 2" by 2". It's also not a "T" it's a "Y pipe" it slopes one way to get the water flowing that way it's just a bad angled pic.
The y-pipe is legal not the tee pipe correct.

Your pipe appears legal, but the tee is not- needs to be a wye. Glue short pieces in each end. Measure this new length and cut it into the pipe.
Roll the wye up above the center line of the drain pipe.

Use shielded couplings to make the connections.
To do this, slide the bands on the cut pipe- both ends. Then put on the rubber piece and roll the end that faces the fitting back on to of itself. Drop in the fitting with stubs and unroll the rubber. Slide the bands into position and tighten to 60 inch pounds

Ok I understand I thought I had a wye.
My next concern is with a wye will it be ok to have an elbow that close to the wye connector. Should I break out more floor and put the wye lower so it's a little further from the elbow.

A wye's side connection is a 45 degree angle you just glue a st 45 into it and aim for the shower. Buy proflex plastic to plastic couplings DO NOT USE the all rubber junk.
