In response to Re: Back flush toilet in basement
A cleanout fitting has no sweep to it so it would not be acceptable for connecting any drain to it. You would be better off cutting it out, leaving about 5" of pipe on either end, then installing the proper sanitary tee, then replacing the cleanout tee above it.

: I would like to install a back flush toilet in the basement and tie it into an existing 3inch PVC stack. The stack has a cleanout just above the floor that I would like to use for entry of the toilet drain for convenience. Is this acceptable? I could use a wye out of the stack to keep the cleanout.
: Also, in venting the toilet drain, there is a 1.5 inch vent from a floor drain that is about 12 feet away that runs up to the roof. Can I tie the vent from the new toilet drain into this vent (would be about a 12 foot horizontal run)?
: Thanks.
