In a crawlspace and i found this cast iron fitting with 6 total pipes entering. I cant seem to find the name of this on the Nachi plumbing section or on youtube. Any ideas or thoughts? Its in a 1958 south florida home. thanks everyone in advance.
I think its called a sanitary cross but I could be wrong. Waiting to hear from the other guys
Your exact may no longer be available…
Nice to see you back on our forum, Alexander!..Enjoy!
You just explained the fitting, partially.
The material? Cast Iron.
Plumbing drain pipe for what? DWV or Sanitary waste?
4" Cast Iron Hub and Spigot sanitary 6 way multi circumference 4" & 3" sanitary fitting.
That is a cast iron bell and spigot sanitary cross with same side openings. All other descriptions above are just a guess.
Thanks for posting this PDF I saved it to my computer
It is sanitary waste and you are correct it is cast iron. Thanks for your input, I am being pointed in the right direction.
Here’s another one for you that is actually more useful for unique components… with actual photos of the component. These are typically used in Multi-story, and should be in your files for reference also.
Thank you Mr Jonas. I went ahead and saved this one too!
I was wondering if anyone could possibly help me determine if this pipe has an issue. I am practicing with a new sewer scope at my sister’s home and i came across about 20-25 feet of pvc that appears to be completely submerged. Could this be normal or a possible result of some kind of sagging pipes? I appreciate any thoughts on it. Not sure the best way do send you the video. I do have it on my google drive. Many thanks. from 45 seconds to 120 seconds the camera is submerged as I pull the cable slowly back.
It looks like after a set of offsets the section of pipe is filled with water. I didn’t see blockage so it can be assumed the pipe isn’t graded to drain. This may have been caused when backfilling the pipe without a proper bed of gravel. Poor workmanship for sure and it will need correction. When video scoping pipe you should run water from the house and see a small layer of free flowing water throughout. The pool of churning crap in that water almost made me lose my breakfast🙂. I never was a sewer rod plumber and never will be.
Bellies or sags are common with drain pipe that wasn’t supported or installed correctly. They can also form when erosion washes away the supporting substrate (leaks, breakage, run-off, etc.).
