    so, if i put the 90's on the top of the y's that would be ok cause it is lower?

    You can't use a wye fitting for back to back fixtures.

    Default drain

    quote; In fact if you have two sinks sharing a common vent through a semetrically connected fitting then that fitting HAS to be a Double San-T. Because if it's not you're a creating an S-Trap and you are not allowed to install S-Traps.

    Aren't you reading anything that has been said. The "back to back fixture fitting" DOES NOT create an "S" trap, which is why it is REQUIRED in most areas.

    A double santee is not the same as a double fixture cross or fitting.
    You may have to print out the page and bring it in.

    and I thought here in Montreal I had problems finding a dst and a dcf I found one at Wolseley, a plumbing reseller which they have in all Canadian provinces or you can purchase a dst online at home depot only on delivery

    I actually called the part manufacturer who couldn't sell it to me cuz i,m a nobody,lol, they only sell to resellers, a bribe to the guy on the phone didn't even work for a 5 dollar part, where is this world leading to, i tell you.
    the part NUMBER at wolseley is ABSTYD2X1K
    good luck

    The factory would not sell it to you, because they do NOT sell individual items and you did not want a box of them. Also, they would have had to create an account for you with all the paper work it entails, INCLUDING a means of charging and reporting any sales tax, or VAT. NONE of their customers pay the sales tax, so you would have created an unusual situation for them with a lot of beaurocracy paperwork.

    Isnt the customer always right, though I totally understand and agree with your point. Just that when I was told that here in my province none were sold to retailers since February, and thousands sold across our country, common courtesy of trying to help a fellow human goes a long way. Just a thought of the day.
