Great forum. First time poster with an issue that has been worrying me for a few weeks. I'm installing a new 2nd floor bathroom and have been following the latest Michigan plumbing code. The issue is where the shower drain meets the tub drain I mistakenly drilled the next joist hole too high. Now the "T" there is perfectly level instead of sloping down by 1/4" per foot per code.
Here is a side view of the "T" in question:
Here is a perspective view of the junction:
In order for me to resolve the issue I would need to drill a larger hole in the joist which will violate the structual code (no hole within 2" of edge and not to exceed 1/3 of the width of the joist).
Question is do you think this will be a major issue (with clogging) in the future or am I worrying too much?
Thanks in advance,
