    Re: more code

    the brass ferrule will get crushed down onto the pipe, not really removable at that point, a plastic one won't really bind to the pipe, and will remain removable.
    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          Yes they are legal in wall.

          The abs waste and overflow needs an access panel or switch it to solvent weld.

              Condos that were built as rental apartments with common plumbing can be an adventure. When they get sold off as separate units there can be creative ways of splitting the plumbing.
              Somebody doesnt want the neighbors drain access in their closet. So they seal it up.

                According to the 2006 UPC (2007 CPC) 221.0 (Definitions) [page 23], a slip joint connection consists of a three piece construction, i.e. nut, friction ring and washer. Thus, a plastic two piece waste connector (male adapter and nut), by this definition, would not be a slip joint connection. It would be a mechanical fitting.
                Of course, this only applies to the UPC. Other codes may vary.
