Boy that Fernco is a perfect example of why I hate Fernco's. How many times have you tried to run a snake past one that looked like that?

This house has a basement bathroom that has a sewage pump. When the offset Fernco gave way, the customer didn't know that the 1st floor was getting flooded every time the pump activated. All night long, family and friends were partying in the basement while the 1st floor flooded.

The offset Fernco pretty much tells the story on how far off the GC was when he put the sewer together.

Note the green pipe. That's "drain pipe" that has a smaller o.d. than pvc, so I found an adapter to go from that to pvc. You can buy green drain pipe only at Lowes..its cheap and fragile.
