|In response to Re: sanitary tee|
: : : : i've read here that a sanitary tee can only be used in a vertical position. I have 5' extentions to two fixtures (a wet bar sink and a lav), the lav is in the center and i have laid a sanitary tee horizontal to stub out this center fixture. is there some other fitting i should use?

: Who told you you didn't need to vent? These sinks need to be vented. The distance is really immaterial. You are creating s-traps by running this way. I will repeat, You CANNOT use a san tee on the horizontal.
the sinks are vented, trought a 2" through the roof. the 5' is the maximum distance allowed between a p-trap and the vent, using 2" PVC. the san-tee in use will not be horizontal, it will be vertical. i was going to use another san-tee in the horizontal position to plug in the intermdiate lavatory to the 5' 2" horizonatal connecting line. now, however, i will use a wye and a street 45. the end of the 5' linkage will attach to the wet bar p-trap through a long 90. none of these fitting used in a horizontal position point down, no s-trap is created, it is all on the horizonatal, with p-traps plugging into the line, which connects to the drain/vent.
maybe we just aren't on the same page.
