    Combo is a vernacular shortcut term for "combination Y-1/8 bend".

    Welcome to Terry's Forums diyfun,

    I thought a combo was a Beer and a Pretzel.

    Have a great Day.

    A Combo is an Arby's sandwich with fries and drink. But it would be a bit messy to try to install it in a plumbing system.

    In California they call it a water bong.
