I'm putting in 2 " pvc under a pier and beam and was told I should put a
cleanout after the 90 sweep. In what orientation do I place the cleanout. If
i place it at 12 o'clock it would be hard but not impossible to get an auger
in there. At 3 or 9 o'clock would be easy to get to but is that kosher? I'm
guessing that at 6 o'clock is a no-no. TIA
Preferred would be a long-turn TEE-WYE:

(turn the picture 90 degrees CCW)
The branch inlet on the left (after you turn the pic) gets a
clean-out plug installed. The long sweep discourages debris from
If you can't use that scheme, put a WYE fitting in after the turn
for a clean-out, but I would rotate it to a 45 degree position
It would be more correct if the sweep elbow had the cleanout in it but I
believe it would be ok to put in at 3 or 9 oclock. If you put it at 6 oclock
the slug would accumulate in it..
BTW. I assume your realize that you should be using a lateral Tee so the
entry into the line will be at 45 deg... Since this is only 2" you might
have a problem finding a latteral tee in standard PVC.
Why are you putting plumbing in your clock? Those tiny clock motors
do not require a cooling system.........
Unless I am misunderstanding this post, in which case I will have to
tell you that it does not matter what time of day or night you install
your plumbing. It should work the same no matter the time. However,
watch the calendar. Never, ever, install plumbing during a full moon
!!!! And worse yet, a lunar or solar eclipse !!!
