There known as "chain cutters" around these here parts although an old timer I apprenticed under called them "ratchet cutters".

what am i dealing with here ?


project is mostly done. i didn't think to buy 2 Y's. so i don't have a cleanout, i will put that in next weekend. putting in the floor joists, the side ones went ok, but the middle one, boy, what a task. and fitting that Y by the dented duct, that was a pita also. but i got it done at 8:30pm last night. then shower, movie and beers.
i have some cleanup to do
and i have to secure the conduit up.
its so nice not having the posts and pipe in the way.

the clean out that i need to install. i am thinking of putting it on the wall, a little off the floor. turned to be next to the wall. is this ok ?

also, if you see that i should have done something different/better, lmk.

btw. the movie was pretty good = lots of action, typical. but what i thought was pretty cool was seeing the big name movie heros all in one place. those guys aren't getting any younger.

i didn't have to pull the crapper.

i was able to cut/chip the coupler off the flange without damaging it. is this normally doable, or did i just get lucky ?

Listen your job looks good , looks a lot better than some of the jobs i run across from plumbers down here,


the tee is the one looks like its picking up a tub?
and the elbow in the picture that has a 2 inch inlet, the elbows not a big deal but the tee should get changed out.

if you can post a pick of that p trap area coming off that tee.

yeah, i know it looks good. i'm just tryin to learn.

the tub has a T , 3" with a 1 1/2 for the tub.
the crapper has an elbow, with a 1 1/2 coming off it, for the sink. this is basicly what was there before that i took out.

the T, is that because i have it on the side ?

pics shortly.

What youve done is also create a S tarp. you need to get rid of that tee and come back with a wye, at move it down at leat a mininum of 24 inches then place the wye on a 45 degree as jagans posted, 24 inches from trap to wye. also a clean out at the base also as jagans posted, the elbow should have been a combo but i guess you can leave it, and should be in 2 inch not 1 1/2 again depending on your code that tub must be connected no more than 10 feet downstream from the water closet on the main. i dont like those fernco couplings for the transition future problems i would go with a no hub coupling and a no hub adapter then bushing down to 3 inch. i would also do a water test on the tub and new lines.

Not that I have a problem with this but can you explain? Is it IRC? Definitely not UPC. UPC trap arm minimum is 3"(I think) and you still have an S trap because the wye is rolled up. I would have it level and lower the trap.
And why have the tub 10ft downstream? Again, I'm just curious
