I'm still working as a plumber, long way to go before retirement (I'm 30). I don't work for myself though, I work for a company in Fall River.

When you tackle your project, give us updates and we will help you out. John at Redmonds Hardware should be able to gear you up with all your fittings.
Yes! I bug John all the time. I work part time for Lee Valley Tools, also, and John is always popping in there in his Home Hardware truck. I go over to Glen Haven sometimes, right across from White Sails Bakery. There's a father/son who have been fabricating some steel cleats for our stairs... Tantallon Metal Works, great guys.

As for Oak Island, I get such a charge out of that story! I don't think anybody has found anything there... except a few unlucky divers died over the years, caught inside a tunnel with the water going the wrong way.

I think the most valuable thing to come off oak island is the TV show

I have been hearing all about that place since I was a little kid. No big news I can ever recall.

Oak Island!! I've seen that show a few times but not really sure what it's about.

Don't really understand how some pirates buried some treasure deep in an underwater cavern below a swamp. I guess you have to know the whole back story on that one.

Quick followup question before I glue the island vent loop together... Matt, you mentioned we needed in-line cleanouts on both the drain and vent side of the bend (not sanitary t's).

Would 45 degree y's with cleanout caps work (photo attached)?

If so, I understand the bottom of the y should point down with the flow of the drain pipe, but what about the vent pipe? Is there a "flow" direction for that vent loop with which I should align the y?

:edit: It seems so odd that they would require a cleanout for an air pipe. if I had to snake the vent on the kitchen sink, I cringe to imagine how badly the septic system must have failed...

In that application, you want sanitary tees with cleanouts on the branch, or a line clean out. This will allow you to snake up the vent and down the drain if need be. You want access to snaking the vent in case of a back up and gunk plugs up the vent pipe
