In response to Re: Basement in floor plumbing - how many bends??
I do not know what code he is going by, but long radius 90 degree bends are used all the time to avoid obstacles. The limiting factor is that a cleanout has to be installed when you make another 90 degree turn, either with one 90 or two 45's.

: I am laying out the drain and vent lines in our basement before the basement floor is poured. I was told by the plumbing inspector that the drains could not have a 90 degree bend. I have two lines that will require 2 45 degree bends about 6 feet apart to get around a large pad that has already been poured. Is that OK and is there any limit to how many 45's you can have in a drain line?
