If you want more info, buy the illustrated code book. But, make sure you buy the 2016 CPC. It takes effect in July.

In ky that is called a high hung heel ell,and there is a low hung heel ell,supposedly only the low hung is legal on drains,the high hungs for vents only,but nobody ever uses the high ones,we use the low ones on both and it passes,I really don't know why you would need a high hung heel ell

here in virginia, we use the side inlets often under closet flanges to catch tub/lavy. We cant use the heel inlet in the same way. We can use the heel inlet with the 2" pointing up, catching a drain, and the two 3" hubs making a horizontal to vertical change of direction.

we are IPC btw

Post 3 is a high heel inlet, may be used in Illinois as a "wet vent" for a W.C. or in venting.

Side outlet ells may also be used as a wet vent for a W.C.

Did several back to back reversed baths in some apartments, Dang nice fitting below, was able to get both W.C., both tubs, stack a cross tee on top to pick up both lavs and a C.O. Two bath groups with two fittings. Great day.

Figure five makes it easier for drain cleaning.

that is why they require fig 5 ftg to try to prevent blow by with a cable or fast power flush spill over and still allow proper common vent. Toto toilets have it on their submittal,to use the fig 5 , but some still use the cross on toilets (where code allows)because the fig 5 does't have the side outlets for the tub/shower branch the diff between the double combo and fig 5 ftg, is it doesnt choke off the vent if you look thru the fitting you can see the difference
