    It is NOT the best installation. The street ell should be a long sweep, which they do not make, as should the second one. How far is it to the shower from the y?

    Then why didn't you connect the sink at the Y by the toilet bend, or use a combo in the line between the 45 and 90? SEveral ways it could have been done, all better than what you have.

    not sure if the drawing is totally correct, but I remember where I put the 3x2 for the lav/shower it was more than feet so I had to bring the 2" wye closer to the shower. so do you think an inspector would pass it? it doesn't hurt to redo it now.

    A "by the book" inspector would fail it because you did not use long radius 90s.

    They actually do make long sweep st 90s in ABS and PVC, but they are rare birds.
