When can I use a sanitary tee?
In respect to this, can I use a sanitary tee for a vent?
In some cases, a sanitary tee is used in place of a vent tee for plumbing vent lines—then, the branch sweeps upward instead. Sanitary tees are made for all types of drain-waste-vent pipe systems, whether cast iron, threaded, copper, or ABS plastic.
Additionally, what is a sanitary T? Sanitary tee is a fitting designed to connect a branch line into a vertical drain (or vent) line. All connections are Slip (Hub/Socket).
Just so, what is a wye used for?
A standard wye is a Y-shaped fitting which allows one pipe to be joined to another at a 45 degree angle. Wyes are similar to tees, except for the angling of the branch line to reduce friction and turbulence. They are commonly used to attach a vertical drainpipe to a horizontal one.
Can you use a wye vertically?
They are only used to go from the horizontal to vertical plane. If used flat (horizontal) they are prone to clogging. You must use a long sweep or wye+? for horizontal DWV.
