    I am turning the bath tub drain 90 degrees horizontal before it gets to the stack. I know this will require a clean out. Will the tub drain serve the purpose of the clean out in this situation since it make an access point for a snake?

    The ceiling underneath will be finished, so adding a clean out will not help.

    I couldn't edit the title, but this is for a Jacuzzi tub.

    You are allowed 135 degrees of change on the trap arm, which can be used for snaking the tub.

    Use a long sweep 1/4 bend.
