|In response to Re: DWV and Fernco Part II|
: First, thanks to all for replying to the first thread.
: To recap, idiot contractor ran underslab 3" directly below toilet port, resulting in illegal vent behind the bend (bend formed with a wye and 45) and the flange a mere 8" from the wall.
: Top-down view:
: 1st solution was to cut out the wye and put in a santee which corrects the rough-in dimension but doesn't correct the vent.
: -----|santee up|----|Fernco|-->vent up
: New solution is to put a wye in ahead of a toilet bend and jog the drain line around the bend to the vent with 45s.
: All 3" PVC. I should be able to do this with no Ferncos, yes? And then I'm all legal, yes?
: BTW, the inspector will never see this. In this town, homeowners are not allowed to do their own plumbing/electrical/HVAC, only contractors who do crap like this and fast-talk their way out of inspections.
