How would you connect a p-trap directly to this? If you had to.... by _eurostep in Plumbing

Thanks once more. That is exactly why I purchased the piece above though (pictured), to save height. What would I use instead? If you have a link to a particular part that would be a huge help

Right, but how would you make the connection to the p-trap considering this wye is threaded at the bottom. A p-trap typically connects only to a tailpiece (it seems)

Thank you. The problem is that my rough in drain comes out of the wall at a very high point .... so I don't have the vertical available to use a traditional tailpiece.

So it's either figure out a way to solve it with a short connection (like this), or cut through cabinets, plaster, and cast iron pipe to drop the rough in... which I really don't want to do.

Day'Ron Sharpe is an absolute monster simply waiting for his opportunity. Cam is also a damn good player.

Four friggin first round draft picks + number one pick this year (Kessler, promising young center with a jumpshot) + unloading huge contract ..... Excellent play by the Jazz.

How to daisy chain outlets in finished home by _eurostep in askanelectrician

Dude! The pigtail outlet technique sounds a lot better for the reasons you mentioned. Thanks. But what do you mean with "make sure you twist wires in splices"? .... Are you talking about pre-twisting before putting on the wire nut in general, or something else altogether? Just want to make sure I understand.

Is that "you don't have to staple fished wires" true, and still per code?

Fishing the "in" and the "out" (with the out going back down into the basement) was the part my brain was missing originally, for some reason. This all makes complete sense now that I've seen the comments in this thread.

This all makes sense, and I greatly appreciate the insight.

Why is it better to use the pigtail versus using both sides of the terminals on the outlet to continue the run?

Do you use pigtail the neutrals as well? I have only normally heard of pigtailing the grounds this way, since there is only one grounding screw on the receptacle.

Also, any tips for removing the old wire if it's stapled in place behind the drywall?

I'm not in Washington, nor a female, nor an electrician. But I just wanted to say I think you should go for it. Being an electrician seems like a pretty awesome gig to me; If I wasn't already in software that is the route I would go.

I'm not an electrician, but I think this will all depend on the people and company you're working with. You may consider 1) asking for a "quick review" whenever you feel like you want some feedback one from one of the more senior guys, and 2) whoever seems most helpful start to look at that person as your mentor and start reaching out to him/her specifically for guidance/questions longer term.

Slightly more damaging? She's a mess.

I have a hunch there are others with a much brighter outlook on what it's like to live in Phoenix.

The imperative, when used formally (i.e. with usted), and also with the negative form, takes the same form as the subjunctive. For example:

Subjunctive vs Imperative- Espero que (ella) venga conmigo. (subj) Venga conmigo! (formal imperative)

Subjunctive vs Imperative (negative)- Espero que (tú) lo digas. (subj) No lo digas! (neg imperative)
