    Hello again.

    I am wondering why on earth anyone would put a main 3" abs line with the clean out directly above my basement bathtub. I am assuming this must be assessable. If so,

    Are there any code requirements( length or amount of bends) in my sink drain run from my main floor kitchen sink. Right now its about 25' with about 200 degrees of bends.( 2 90s and one 22 )

    I need to shorten the 3" by about 5' to bring the clean out into the furnace room unfinished ceiling.

    hopefully this drawing helps.

    thanks

    Your drawing does NOT show a lot of things. One of them being whether there is an additional cleanout before it leaves the building or goes into the floor. If so, that that cleanout is cosmetic and completely unnecessary.

    Sorry i should have explained my drawing better. This 3" line is in my basement ceiling. the two drains i have drawn go up through the floor to my main floor kitchen sink and laundry room. The end of this 3" with clean out sits right above my basement bathtub. I would like to drywall this ceiling. My goal is to shorten this 3" by 5' so that the clean out is in my open ceiling furnace room, and these 2 drains will be reattached to the 3" line in my furnace room ceiling.

    You did NOT answer the question. AFTER the line leaves the ceiling does it go through the basement wall or into the floor, and if so is there ALSO a cleanout on THAT line. If so, and there, and there should be, then you do not need that cleanout in the ceiling and it can be ignored, i.e., do nothing with it.
