Toilet / Sink Connections to Main Sewer Line


Hi,

I have some really basic plumbing questions as I'm developing my plans for a bathroom in the basement. Do Sink and Toilet Waste Lines need to be "Wye" connections to the main line or can I simply "Tee" them in?

Thanks for your help

wye or sanitary tee. A plain 90 degree tee will create a build up of waste> you need to direct the flow downstream.
