    An s-trap and two tee's on their back. Looks like a good set up to me.

      And yet you failed to notice the 2 x 1.5 reducing coupling after the trap Good stuff there yes? Still for you HACKS! out there, I'll bet it's worked just fine since the day it was cobbed in.

                      Not sure what impresses me more. The garden hose run to the standpipe or the duct tape seal at the penetration through the wall
