Hi all,
I have a 2 story townhome. Iam trying to move my washer and dryer from the kitchen into a closet. The closet has one of the 3 inch stacks that drain the upstairs bathroom fixtures. I wanted to know if i can add a sanitary Tee to put the washer? Iam also not sure but i was thinking to run the pvc vent it was on from the kitchen to the closet? Thanks for the input

that works your code allows the santee on its back which we cant do we have to use a wye or a combi its possible they could get plugged with debris and easy enough to avoid by using mentioned fittings.

Yeah you can do that. Just need to run the vent and tie in somewhere above the washer.

I got this so far almost done thanks for all the help. But I have to take it all out I guess I put the repair coupler wrong or not enough glue and it’s leaking. Might switch it to the rubber fernco

You can't use a regular fernco. You need a no hub band. Or on other words a shielded coulping.

And we cant use regular no hub bands either The terminology can be confused its gotta be a plastic to plastic band with shield. Im guilty of using regular no hub on 1 1/2 and 2 inch even transitioning to cast iron or over galvie but every band has its proper legal use. fernco 3005-33 would be a good choice cast iron to plastic wont work properly because thye od on plastic is slightly larger and the band has differant id on each end

All no hubs (regular) can do plastic to plastic or cast to cast. What you can't do is plastic to cast with a regular band.

He's doing plastic to plastic which any like size no hub will work on and it's approved by the manufacturer.

It works fine Ive done it on 2 inch and 1 1/2 as does an unshielded fernco not going to hurt a thing . but that dosent make it legal. ill look further but Fernco says cast iron to cast iron 3000 series are for plastic to plastic . I agree it wont hurt a thing but Its been my understanding (right or wrong) that they arent listed for that use weve all seen regular ferncos used they work just dandy too but totally illegal on this application
