Title: Soil Pipe Tee
Post by number8wire on May 28th, 2018, 9:33am

Hi all, just a quick question (not sure if I'm supposed to have started a topic):
Can you use a 110mm soil pipe tee horizontally instead of the usual vertical?
I'm moving the wc outlet and by using the a tee horizontally would mean I can avoid lots of bends and joins for the vent pipe. Thanks

I’m not too sure what you mean, perhaps a sketch would help?  The tees have a flow direction, and as long as this is followed, with a fall, you can put the tees in any orientation.

I assume you want to use the tee horizontally and take the vent vertically from the branch which is fine.

Perhaps a quick sketch as Lec said just to confirm.
