    Does a lavatory sanitary Tee / p-trap flange that drains into a combo Wye in the middle of a horizontal drain run with more than 135 deg turns count as a cleanout? Thanks!

    That is a loaded question. Are you asking in reference to code or just if it will work?

    Cleanouts should be sized to the main line they connect to. Meaning, if that 1.5" line leads into a 3" main line, then the cleanout should be sized @ 3" before it enters the concrete floor.

    That probably didn't answer your question.:cool:

    Is it allowed per code?

    The horizontal run in question is 2", so a 1.5" lav inlet satisfies the cleanout size requirement. Does it qualify as a cleanout per code though? Thanks.
