|In response to Re: Side Inlet Wye Question|
That is not a side inlet "Y", it is a side inlet combination Y-1/8 bend and as such the tub inlet is not vented properly because the actual vent "opening" is below the inlet to the fitting. But it is academic, since I doubt that you would ever find one unless it was special ordered and might take months before they made it for you.
: : I have never seen a side inlet wye....
: I hadn't seen one either (and the way things are going I might not!) but I am posting the picture from the Charlotte Pipe catalog.
: I'm not sure there's enough room for your solution, but it's a great idea and I'll check it out.
: I'm trying to understand what exactly is wrong with the configuration shown in #2. Without the shower, it would be fine, right? The toilet drain is vertically vented by the vent stack.
: Thanks again...I'm not trying to argue, just to learn the finer points of the code...your feedback is very helpful!
