Got call water dripping from ceiling below tub on second floor (bad tub shoe gasket and slip nut gaskets) I go ahead and cut the sheetrock and to my surprise there’s the old ci trap for tub that’s still tied in to sanitary un capped. (the newer waste was a 1 1/2" copper) so in order to replace slip nut gaskets I had to cut out the brass trap every thing seemed up to code vent seemed fine till I noticed it terminated 6" behind tub so basically I had to rework everything and install proper vent and tie into ci stack on exterior of unit pain in the :censored: ass so anyways here’s the pics


before


old ci trap


everything seemed okay till i ran my flash lite up there and saw un capped 1 1/4" vent terminating behind tub (hacks!!:censored:)


ci drain sealed dont laugh at my lead joint i couldn't find my runner so i used a rag soaked in cutting oil


Finished product


i forgot to take pics of the vent tie in to the stack..:rolleyes:

but wait... heres some more hack plumbing from the same unit for your enjoyment

t&p drain tied directly into 2" abs drain looks like the person melted the 3/4"male adapter straight into the drain




i also liked the strapping technique on the copper water lines

yeah $65.00 brass combo $70 trap i cant put in any plastic in sf.
That sucks!!

I did a tankless in San Mateo for my mother in law's boy friend. It was a really simple installation. The inspector only cared about combustable air inlet calculations. There was easily more than double for the space but he still wanted to see it.

Is it like that all over the Bay area or just in S.F.?

Are those tubular compression joints on the w/o? I didn't think you could install those in a concealed space like that. Is that a san tee or a combo? I don't work with copper dwv much so I can't tell. Looks like a combo to me.

those are slip joint compression fittings they can be installed in concealed spaces tubs only though / thats a combo (below the flood rim requires combonation fitting for venting)
