    Tee basin into shower waste?

    Hello, have a 4m run of 50mm pipe for the shower. The layout of joists, closeness of corner walls etc mean that it would be very helpful to be able to add the basin waste to a swept tee in the shower waste and this could be between 300-800mm from the soil stack . I've read elsewhere very mixed...

    Why tee before tub spout?

    While changing the posi-temp cartridge in one of our Moen shower faucets, I noticed a tee between the control and the tub spout. Can't see where it goes but I'm curious. Can anyone suggest why this exists? Thanks in advance. Mike

    45 degree take off Tee

    Hi folks, I need a 45 degree take off from a horizontal pipe, I can get a 28mm x 28mm x 15mm Tee but that's a 90 degree elbow. Does anything exist that gives a 45? I guess it would look a bit like a Y branch or Y Drain/Strainer, otherwise I'll just go for the 90 Tee with a 45 degree elbow. Cheers

    Anyone ever seen a 15mm fitting like this?

    I've lifted up some floorboards in a house and found a Y shape tee joint on the central heating piping. It looks like two pipes sliced and jointed together rather than using a normal tee. The image below (on the link). Has anyone seen or can name this joint? or how/why or what the rationale is? is?
