    In my basement, I have 4" of room below the bottom of the floor joist to connect to a 2" copper vent pipe. I have a few questions:
    1. How should I secure the vent pipe before I cut into it?
    2. What type of fitting should I use?
    3. How should I transition from PVC to the copper?

    I'm venting a Drainosaur that has a 2" vent pipe.

    Thank you for help with some basics.

  2. If you are describing that pipe with a cleanout cap, are you sure that isn't a drain because you cannot tie into a drain to vent.
