 PVC drain fittings
Author: sum (FL)

Do they make a PVC fitting with two sanitary tee branches but instead of the two branches opposing each other like a double sanitary tee, you have one branch facing out to you and another branch goes to the right (or left), in other words the two branches are orthogonal to each other.

Is there such a thing?

Second question: Do they make a 2" PVC wye or a TY combo where the branch is a street connection instead of hubbed?

Those are pressure/fence fittings, not drainage.

Yes I am looking for a drain fitting, a 2" PVC double sanitary tee with the branches at 90 degrees instead of 180 degrees.

Yes I searched the only drain wye or combo with a street connection on the inlet side is a cast iron no hub wye where all sides are "no hub". No such animal for PVC I guess.

No, and I can only imagine what wacky installations we would see if they did make fittings like you are looking for, MAYBE one of yours.

hj, here is the wacky situation where I wanted to use a double sanitary tee that does not have 180 degree inlets.



The existing vent is between the common wall between two units A and B. The location of the sink/drains are such that the north apartment sink B is further to the right.

The current configuration is there is a double santee one goes into apartment A as indicated and the other side goes to apartment B but then it makes a turn and the trap arm runs through the back of a kitchen cabinet. If there is such a fitting I have the wall open I can route it inside the wall cavity to avoid pipes inside the cabinet.

An alternative would be to turn the double santee 90 degrees, and do what I wanted to do with apartment B, and insert a street elbow into the other side then the stubout for apartment A. The problem with this is to the left of the vent is the hot and cold manifolds and they are in the way, unless I take the manifolds apart and remake them lower.

A third alternative would be to have two santee one on top of the other turned in the directions I wanted. Problem is that one of the santee stubout will probably be too high to accommodate a garbage disposer if I wanted the cleanout to be located at the lowest opening inside the cabinet. I don't want to put the CO to be the highest because the snake would be at an awkward angle inside a kitchen cabinet.

Any thoughts?

i would opt for # 3.. use a san tee and a street san tee.
keep the lower one at 13 off finish floor.
you will also have a much easier time snaking the pipes in the future this way..

Turn a "back to back fixture fitting" on a 45 degree angle and use street 45s to realign the openings for the left sink and along the right wall.

another one.

I have a combo (TY) fitting I am considering to replace. The following is a plan view (top view) all pipes are running horizontal (almost).

The pipe from north connects to the inlet of the combo, and the combo needs to align with the pipe to it's left and it's right. To replace that combo I need to cut the pipe as indicated. All pipes and fittings are 2".



Which means if I buy a new combo, the pipe is too short by the depth of the hub. If I put in a coupling, it will be too long.

Looking at the Charlotte catalog, the distance from the centerline of the fitting to the inner edge of the hub is 5-1/8". If the hub is 1/2" deep, then I need a combo fitting that will give me a "A" distance of 5-5/8".



I am wondering, if I use a 2" WYE, then a 2" 1/8 bend, both hubbed, with a short piece of pipe in between, cut so that none of the connecting short piece of pipe is exposed, will that combination give me the distance I need?

Also, are all plastic fittings the same dimensions? In other words, would the distance I am trying to match are they the same whether it's Charlotte, Mueller or Lasco brand fittings?

Yes, if you use a wye and regular 45 the distance will be correct.
