 Can I use a 3" street 90 for a toilet?
Author: jsherwoo (CA)

Hello,
My toilet and shower drains need to be 32" apart... with the main line running down between them, This is not leaving me a lot of wiggle room between the two, with the various wyes and vents in between. So I'm wondering if I can use a street 90 directly beneath my toilet flange, or do I need a long 90, or regular 90, since it's servicing a toilet?
I could really use the extra 2+" I'd gain by using a street 90, but I have a feeling that's a no-no for a toilet.

you can also get a 'street wye' if that option is better for you.

Not trying to nitpick but you also want to cut your pipe straight use a chop saw for better results

A street 3x2 Y, and a 4x3 closet bend with the 4" side being a long, cut off, spigot would be my preference.
