    Talking Remember To Wear Gloves....

    Their are two people posting or different names
    claiming to be the same person here.... what is that all about??

    If this passed a while back, their is probably good
    reason that they never tore into any more of that clay
    tile or terra cotta that they absolutely had to....

    you will have to increase the size of the hole probably a
    foot wider at least and because
    the wye is probably 4 inches longer than the tee..


    two things you will need...

    gloves up to the elbow ..and probably a sump pump
    to help pump out the sewage water while you do
    this major operation.....

    if it passed a while back...

    leave sleeping dogs lie...

    god help you if you split or break that tile

    good luck

    The funny thing is that the inspector requested that the plumber/contractor test the cleanout as per contractor told me. I dont know if it had to be removed after the test.

    Ok, so the issue here is the cleanout and the horizontial 't" ?

    Thanks.
