I certainly do have a lot of opinions. If my count is correct, between here and others I have talked to I now have five different suggestions. Including two which are the same but change the direction of the ty fitting. Very confusing. The sink isn't worth concrete work to me; I am only going to add it if its simple, otherwise I can do without.

I guess I will see which looks easiest to undo, in case it doesnt work, and go that route!

Thank you.
So now it can be just like the picture, but the trap arm length increases.

Just run it to the vent on the pump pit. No ones going to lose sleep over it. That way you will not mess up your seals on the pit if you start needing it for the toilet.

Just so its clear, diagram would look like this, except with the ty upside down?

No. Do it as your drawing is.
Forget about an upside down fitting.
I haven't heard the term- ty or bull in ages. Must be an east coast thing. Do not put a tee in upside down when used as a drainage fitting.

Thanks, I was thinking that was the proper way to orient it.

No problem. Sometimes when you get 4 plumbers from 4 regions of the country it gets interesting.... Good luck!

the pic you have is fine if you dont need to add a vent, thats a ty you are showing, if you need a vent you use the ty but just turn it the other way..if you put your location in that would help on code for your area..and possible nick names that area uses..

I come from the midwest and we call it a sanitary tee (san-t for short). Never heard ty before either.

I know, but I never understood the y part. It's either a tee or its a y.

a T would be straight sides on all 3 outlets, a ty is directional but used for venting just turned opposite from drainage, like a hybird...and a y is only installed 1 way...
