Will this work alright?


Well I started to work on the plumbing today. Got some no-hub fittings the other day incase I wanted do go that route. Well I cut more of the floor out so I could get to work on it and then I see more problems. Where I was going to put the Wye and then the trap the drain decides to go down and join another drain line. (The one side is from the vanities and I don't know where it goes (to shower I guess). Also: the tub overflow/drain don't match up with the whirlpool. I thought they were all pretty much the same. It is adjustable (slip) fittings but it won't even be close and too short.
I wanted to know if I can come down and through the trap and go the oppositte way and then just loop around and connect to the drainline further down away from where the drain drops down and intersects. And put the wye down this way and the vent coming out of the wye would actually be closer to the vertical vent stack also. I didn't see why I couldn't but want to check. In the one pic I am holding the trap in the way I am speaking. Have the trap follow beside the drain line then elbow around and connect to the drainline/wye. I appreciate the info as usual. Bare with me. Mike.

Where ya at plumcass? LOL. I want to avoid having a plummer come out just to tell me what is o.k. to do and such. I know I can find out what I need on the forum. Wife says hire a plumber. I told her that it ain't nothing I can't do, just a matter of making sure what I can do so it is "correct" and not cobbled. I'm waitin' LOL. Thx.

Will this work alright?-sketch002.jpgI am a little confused as to the relationship of the original photos vs the newer . Is the original picture actually the line you show next to the trap your holding and is that the same one that continued to the wall with the offst and other trap?
is that the actual tub position?
Not a good idea to make a 180 turn or take the went off the end of the y unless there is a lavatory sink or similiar on the vertical part of the line. I doubt if you would have room to make a U turn without raising the trap above the horizontal drain ( makes a full S trap a no no in these parts) As far as the bath waste and over-flow, You have a couple of options, one measure the height of the tub from top to the floor and buy a waste and over-flow sized for that tub. Two if it has a stopper in the drain outlet of the tub with an overflow wiyh-out a pop up you can buy an 1-1/2" extention tail piece. I'll sketch the way I would do this job it entails making a header and then drilling through it.
If there's not another way, do it the way you saidBut be sure to install accessible clean-outs at points most likely to stop-up

Yes sir, that is the drain line we have been speaking of that goes to the old location towards the wall. That's why I was like great another problem. It drops down into another drain (coming from the vanities). That is the location the whirlpool will be. I am getting ready for work and will check your sketch out when I get home. Thx again. Your a HUGE help taking the time to help me.

I don't think that I really understand what your drawing is trying to tell me plumcass. I understood your other drawing perfectly well. Could you try to explain it further? Thank you. I can get more pics if you would like if that would help any.

In the last pic if you look at me holding the trap. Couldn't I just turn the trap so it come up and straight into the drainline and put the Wye right there. Or reverse the direction of they trap maybe so there wasn't that much of a bend?

O.K. I think I get the drawing. Run the trap and drain to the drain line past where the joist is. That is why i'd have to cut the joist? Then go from the T and reduce to 1.5" and go to the vent? Man I sure would like to avoid that lol. Seems like I keep getting further and further in lol.

I've been trying to upload this sketch for over an hour. I had a paragraph of instructions I lost. Very frustrating. At least I finally got the sketch to go i hope you can understand it.

I don't fully understand it. Not the drawing, just me LOL. Thank you for taking the time to sketch it. You don't have to bother anymore if you don't want to. I guess i'll figure it out.

1 - cut out the existing long turn t-y in the 2" drain. using couplings install a y with a slight roll up over the water line about 3/4", pua a street 45o and roll the 45 till its as close to 90o as possible, make the back of the 45 hug the floor joist to the right when standing at the end of the tub opposite the drain, off the 45 take approx 24" or longer piece of pipe (you will have to square to 90o with a little force when you put the 24" pipe into the 45o,) at the end of this pipe make a rolled-up u-turn using 1 regular 45 and 3 (see end view) roll high enough for the bottom of the trap to clear whats beneath. Out of the rolled out end put a short piece with a 1-1/2" t-y with the branch facing right roll this up if you can with-out touching the bottom of the tub turn 90o heading toward the end of the tub pick up the existing 2" abs vent. Go back to the open end of the t-y of the a short piece and a 1-1/2 y the end of the y will have a clean-out. The y branch will pick up the trap.
Good Luck. Hope your not discouraged.

After doing some more studying of the situation I came up with another idea and you can tell me if you see any problem with it. Come off the trap and do 1 90 into the T. Make sure the drainline is at the proper angle of course so it is level and puddle or allow water to go opposite way. Then the vent can go to the right to the wall? Any problem with this situation. Seems like it would be almost just like it was previous.

Sanitary - T (t) not allowed on the horizontal for a drain, only vertical for a drain. Can be horizontal for a vent. Whye and 45 provides a smoother flow less likely to stop-up. Dry vents not allowed off the end of a horizontal drain. Wash back from the fixture will eventually stop it up.
Vents should attach to a horizontal drain at an angle of no more than 45 degrees from the vertical.
Think it will fit as sketched?

I got another suggestion from that last idea. Suggested that I cut out that long sweep t/wye and put in a regular radius wye. From there I should be able to come up to the 1.5" wye and do a 90 into the trap. I am gonna try to get it dry fitted tomorrow. Plumbing sucks LOL. And I thought crawling under the house running the electric sucked.
