|In response to Re: DWV Pipe gap and Fernco|
: You should have used 2 ferncos. I wouldn't leave a gap like that.
: Wasn't it an option to simply cut out the flange and extend the trap arm?
: The Pipewench
The drain runs directly under the toilet (about 10" below floor grade), so the trap arm is vertical. The contractor apparently measured for a santee, and then he put in a wye and a 45.
I had to reach in and make a fairly not-square cut on the upstream pipe, so even if I butt them up there will still be about a 1/2" gap (on the bottom, of course). Given that, would it pay to chop out that nice glued coupling and add a downsteam Fernco?
