    Re: slope on vent piping

    so what do you do if the local code requires something like copper for waste lines? i remember an older episode of TOH where an old church in San Francisco was remodelled into a yuppie palace. the site plumber was interviewed by the TOH plumber and i am relativley sure the site plumber noted that copper was required for waste lines in his area. wouldn't a 3 or 4" copper fitting be difficult to heat and bend or "fudge"(use play within the fitting) to achieve the required pitch?
    there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

      I'm thinking the DWV sockets for 3-4" are the same as 1-1/2 and 2" with the socket tolerences being a lot more forgiving.

          Lol, sorry Finer, but I was only messing with you. We don't use our torches and heat fittings to bend them.

            in Sf yes all dwv lines have to be either ci or copper/ we generally dont use large copper fittings for w/c's or stacks or things of that nature we'll use coppper dwv for lav sink lines/ kit sink lines / laundry lines and vents then tie into ci via transition band all of our stacks are ci / in san francisco county you can only use plastic abs dwv for small single level residental

                I kindof get the feeling you're looking out for all of us in one way or another.
                That means a lot to me.

                  It's all good...now if ya don't mind...couldya help me get the hook outta my mouth?
                  I was about to blast ya till I saw your last post.


                  As far as pitch on venting...I pitch according to the pipes diameter, same as drainage.
                  As for flat venting, screw that...as Rick points out...not a good idea at all to have standing water.

                        No harm no foul. Remember what we said about the kids who ride the short bus.

                          Yes, but we still need to try to teach them right from wrong

                            That is very true however I firmly believe we should let them think they are playing on a level playing field so they will be easier to transition into mainstream society at a later date.

                              Yes. But in order to do so, some basic social skills will need to be learned.

                                I suppose you're right but you are much more patient than I am. I just cannot see him ever learning social skills. Must I remind you teaching him to make chocolate milk shakes with a blender did not work out all that well.
