    I have a toilet drain that has 3 x 3" 90 degree bends back to back. The other toilets in the house have the same number of bends, but more spread out. Can anyone tell me if this a code violation in Ohio? Thanks in advance.

    What a mess.
    The toilet could have dropped straight down and the "vent" could have wyed off just past it and gotten back with a single 45. Instead they added two 90 changes of direction to the toilet. Someone doesn't know how to lay out plumbing.

    That would not have passed where I plumb.

    Thanks Terry. The toilet was added much after the rest of the plumbing and snaked arround to avoid redoing the original drains. We're now moving and I'm afraid this will be an issue for the home inspection. I've been thinking about moving these around to get a straight line down for the toilet. I appreciate the advice.

    Just finished gluing everything back up. I know, still not perfect, but much better I think. Thanks again for the advice.
