    What do you typically use when placing a clean out in main line? Is it a wye or a combination wye tee or does it matter? Also, can a san tee be used on the vertical stack for a clean out?

    is the main line vertical or horizontal? if vertical , use a cleanout tee / test tee . if horizontal, use a combo or y and 1/8 bend. some i have seen even have a wye 1/8 bend in the opposite direction to cleanout both sides.

    i'm not a plumber but an avid diy'er. a plumber may come along to assist.

    A cleanout can be installed on a santee on the vertical
    A test tee is fine too.

    Basically you just need access to drop the cable. Something with sweep is nice, but not necessarily a code item.

    What is code, is the requirement to have a cleanout every 135 degrees of horizontal change of direction. That's a 90 plus a 45.
