First Attempt at the whole System
Hey - Thanks Terry - This is the first attempt at the whole job - Floor Drain, Washing Machine Vent&Waste + Sink Vent&Waste - it looks a little 'overdone/complicated to me' but I can't think of any other way at the moment...
GREEN - 2" . WASTE
RED - 1.5" . VENT
YELLOW - 1.5" . WASTE
I 'll check back tomorrow just in case theres a shiny new reply :)
good night people
EDIT - the YELLOW SANITEE would be a long sweep like the one in terry's below OR I could just change it to a WYE?
EDIT and the YELLOW pipe going into the RED pipe should be a SANITEE not a WYE
EDIT ALSO, I could just come straight up off the sink trap 'vertically' and then 90 off and join into the RED vent above the existing SANITEE with another one for the tie in for the sink eliminating the RED vent at the corner of the YELLOW waste?
minimum trap distance from floor
So is it possible to drop the trap down further as long as it fits into the cabinet or does it have to be something like 6inches from the finished surface?
The reason I ask is - if the washing machines tee goes above the sink tee, then I'm having difficulty joining the sinks yellow pipe to the green pipe (maintaining) the 1/4 per foot etc. Could I use 45degrees at each end to connect as a diagonal?
also is says in my 'section 7' OBC code book that there should only be 300mm /12inches of backfill on the underground pipe.
and...does the pipe underground have to be exactly 1/4 or 1/50 per foot - I think the pipes slope is goin to be way greater based on the existing connection to the main sewer line.
thanks in advance for any further help...
Terry you have been fantastic/thanks for sharing your knowledge :) GREATLY APPRECIATED
once ii get this connection problem sorted and the slopes confirmed I good to start (Can't wait)
SO I guess even HJ or Redwood would'nt even question this cos im the shzizle
