    The kitchen faucet is a one-handle arm that turns up-down-left-right.
    The bathroom which also has the problems sometimes has a faucet with two knobs that turn.

    For a Tub-Drain, is it ok to have about 1 foot of the Vent run horizontal below the floor until it reaches the vertical vent?
    Can I use 90 degree turns for the 1 1/2" vent?
