  • I give up. whats wrong in this picture?

    Alright, someone posted this awhile back in strokefires thread, FrankenPlumbing. Is the fact that the trap arm goes into a 45 * before dumping into a wye what makes this ill legal or the trap adapter used in the horizontal application?

    Trap arm dumping into a 45º and an improper island vent layout.

      When the vent opening is at or below the level of the trap weir siphonage can occur. Therefore the vent opening must be at or above the trap weir. Thats the reason combos are not commonly use to pick up fixtures horizontal to vertical.

        As an added note, at least in PA, all solvent weld joints must be primed with purple primer visible at all joints.

          Here in Mich, that wye should be a tee. And if that 1-1/2" line coming up is a relief vent, or a revent, it should be tied into vent pipe above the flood level rim of sink, or fixture served, as code would say.
          Think about it, if that 1-1/2" line below the 1-1/2" wye clogs, the water could fill up to a certain level in sink, & then run into revent. Thats what i see anyway.

              If this is, in fact, an island sink situation, where is that horizontal 1-1/2" piping going out through the cabinet?

                Bingo.

                BTW: I added a little silicone spray to that Ro-Pump. Made all the difference. Now I don't have to use Arnold Shwartzeneger type strength to operate the thing. (good thing since I don't have that to begin with)

                  Same thing across the river in Jersey, need to use purple primer.

Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
