Why did you use DWV? A 1 1/4" x 2" bushing isn't that hard to find.

I don't think it's even cemented together yet. Correct me if I'm wrong. Not a drop of primer or glue anywhere.

Golf balls. The keys "D" and "F" are right next to each other on the keyboard.

"and its pvc pipe and fitting"

We knew that you used PVC but you used some fittings that aren't pressure rated, and therefore, unsafe.
