Don’t you dare put a check on drain just another obstruction waiting to cost you and then the snake tears it up. No do t do that. You pictures have pressure fittings. Don’t do that. Need dwv fittings. Clean out will be trap and studor vent you install for sink. But long as you have smooth turns you can corkscrew a drain just no pressure fittings

Good eye. Never even noticed they were pressure fittings.

around here any plumbing in basement lower than youre lateral is required to have backwater valve. i agree they can clog but have you ever seen city drain back up into a basement...its not pretty. like a fire hydrant spewing raw sewage.
