    how to minimize p trap under utility sink

    Don't use the snappy crap, it is not sanitary and probably not legal. Either get the shortest basket you can, do as Tuttle advises or get a smaller cat.

    Compression stem for bathroom faucet

    If there isn't a screw on the bottom, just a hole (I can't tell in picture) it may be a Price Pfister Hydroseal.

    Is this a "compression" inlet valve?

    Some replacement packing washers come with a diagonal slit. Teflon or graphite string packing added to what you have will probably work. Back in the day at our high service plumbing store If folks brought in a stem & bonnet I would find a square cut cloth & rubber that fit tight on the stem and...

    Toilet and shower drain sharing a vent - Shower downstream

    I don't think an ABS 1/5 bend exists but a 1/6 bend in a rolled wye would point off at 90 degrees. I am not sure that California allows AAVs.

    Reassure me that a shielded coupling (e.g., Fernco) is just as good

    Use the shielded couplings. PVC repair couplings are a pain to use and you only get one shot at it.

    Cutting old galvanized to couple to new brass or PVC P trap. Nervous.

    Anyone for sure know what this is?

    The hex on the branch of the tee makes me suspect it is threaded. Just a guess.
