Tapping into soil pipe for temporary shower.


I'm plumbing in a temporary shower. The only practical pipe to tap into is a 3" soil pipe. Using fercos I added this section to weave in a 2" pvc pipe.
Now that I look at it, I'm worried that I created a snag for solids from the toilet. Could you look at my pic and tell me if I screwed this up?

You do know you need a trap, right?

The shower plumbing penetrates the floor a couple feet away. The p-trap will be tucked up between the joists directly below the shower. I'm just checking before I glue it all in place. The venting, however, will be shared.

You are better off with a long sweep Y fitting if you can get it in there, Those short T'ees are for vents. Other than that, if you cut square, deburred and chamfered you should be OK. A 3 inch copper Y and 1/8th bend would be better, but this should work temporarily. 3 inch copper takes some serious heat output to sweat.

Good to know. Thankfully I haven't glued it yet. I'll correct that.
Thanks guys.
