One of our guys at his finest. It's sad when you're supposed to be a journeyman yet someone still has to go behind you and check your work.

What can you say, when you run out the fitting needed to have to improvise.

Could be the camera angle, but it looks like the trap is back pitched? Is that supposed to be an air gap or air brake?
You got part of it, the trap is back pitched. He put so much pitch on the pipe behind the trap that it was high. Instead of lowering the line he decided to roll the trap to get the height. I know it's hard to see what's going on in the picture.

The trap is for a drain which is out of the picture. He decided to put it where it is so that it would be accessible once construction was complete.

Notice any hangers in the area? The whole thing is unsupported save a pile of rubble he packed under the pipe which out of the shot. If that backed up the weight would pull it right down.

That 3" 45 on the left he used to offset doesn't have to be there. All he had to do was extend the piece on the right and he would have been straight in. I guess the 45 was closer then the pipe was though.
