In response to Re: Sanitary Tee vs. Vent Tee
Please excuise my noviceness of plumbing. I'm trying to learn as much as I can. Why would a "WYE" work in this situation? There is a horizontal run of drain pipe and he wants to add a vertical pipe for a vent. This seems to me that a 90 degree angle is needed to solve this. A "sanitary tee" would achive a 90 degree. A wye would extend off the horizontal drain line at a 45.

Also I understand the problems of using a sanitary tee as you explained them, but wouldn't those same problems exist with a wye installed. Please expalin in simple terms, thanks.
