    I managed to fit in the unmodified santee with cut 90. Just cut away a little Sheetrock and metal framing.

    Good to know that I can tilt the santee if needed.

    I'll post some pics later today.

    Ok I setup my drains using santees.
    So much more straightforward.

    Here are some pics.

    Some observations:
    - The new lines can handle much more flow vs the setup with all the 90s. The old ptraps would overflow when I opened up the water full blast. New setup no issues.

    - the fancy no hub coupling with four straps (the one after the wye) was a leaker. Replaced it with a standard coupling and she's dry. Weird.... these cost me $9 a piece. Considering replacing the other two fancy couplings on the shower drain.

    - cutting pipes using and old NH coupling got me some straight/ smooth cuts.

    I couldn't figure out why you wanted to use 2" cast iron p-trap for the tub until I saw the filler. The tub is not a typical tub, but a custom tile job like a shower. Makes more since.

    No it's just a free standing tub. No tile required.

    I used 2" because i had a long 2" drain run already there.

    Add a cleanout on the vent at the wall if you can. You will thank yourself down the road.

    I never understood why cleanouts are necessary at the vent. Wouldn't you just snake the drain?

    There's a closet in the opposite side of the vent line. So I guess I could put a door in there.

    Where would you put the cleanout in my vent setup?

    Got it. So I can use a 1 1/2" tapped santee along with a threaded plug?

    no. the clean out has to be the same size as the sewer it serves. 2''

    then buy a chrome clean out cover, and a thread tap. tap the co plug, the size of the clean cover screw

    you use a 2x2x 2 tap tee

    if your vent is 1.5 then reduce on top of the tap tee with a 2x1.5 reducing band

    So connect a 2x2x2 tapped tee to my 2x2x2 sanitary tee and face the cleanout toward the wall behind in the direction of the main line. This makes sense now. I can cleanout from my closet behind the wall.

    The problem is the tub drain waste and overflow is only 1-1/2".
    You insist on using a 2". You get a 2 " hair ball stoppage down stream from that trap arm santee you're going to be glad you installed that cleanout

    You're going to want to move that C.O. up a bit
