: IPC 708.3.4 calls for a cleanout at the base of each waste or soil stack. I have a situation with new construction of a multi story dormatory with bathrooms stacked, where one of the cleanouts, for a dual shower/lav situation. The waste line goes to the other side of the bathroom where there is a wc/lav bank with a stact and cleanout. The Arch does not want a cleanout in the hall. He wonders is the intent of the code is meet using one cleanout for both stacks (there is a ten foot seperation). I don't think so. Comments?
WHY NOT let the Plumbing inspector (bldg. inspect.) decide.? He should be able to define code. Hube
