    I have a question in interpreting Table 706.3. If I understand the rule correctly:

    1.) Horizontal to Horizontal can only be made using a long sweep, back to back 1/8 bends, or wye-1/8 bend (combination fitting/Wye-Tee).

    Am I correct in my reading, or am I all wet on this? A short sweep would not be allowed. Talking Cast Iron specifically. And not talking about a 1/4 bend; I know that would be a violation.

    In cast iron, a short sweep IS a 1/4 bend.
