In response to Re: Basement in floor plumbing - how many bends??
Well, I did not see anything that indicated the sex of the inspector, but other than that, I agree with Sylvan, in priciple, (and I can't believe I am saying that).

: : : 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?

: : Your inspector said no 90 Degee bends?

: : Ask HER what is a lead bend considered?

: : Also if "drains" can't have a 90 degree angle WE had better never tell her that a trap is 180 degrees and thus doubly illegal is that what she is saying?

: : I would try to get another inspectors opinion who is not PMS that day.

: : I can understand no 1/4 bends or short sweeps BUT to say no 90 degree angle something is wrong.

: My word Sylvan, what is the matter with you?

: What a nasty, nasty female bashing post for no reason!

: What would your mother think?

: (And we heard you the first time)
