Bend in ABS drain pipe

I need to make a slight bend (about 5 degrees) in my 3 inch ABS drain pipe. How should I do this?

Depends on the length of pipe and/or what you are doing..Really not enough info.

If anything, two 45's will get you any angle you want...

I need to get from the last fitting to the pipe from outside the house. The fitting (where the kitchen sink drains into the 3 inch drain pipe) is about five feet from the pipe it needs to connect to. If I connect a five foot piece of pipe to the fitting it will fall about 4 inches to the left of the pipe from outside of the house.

Am I allowed to use a flexible fitting on each end of the five foot piece?

I like the idea of a pair of 45 degree bends to deflect the pipe if it doesn't deflect more than the 4 inches. Perhaps a pair of 22-1/2 degree bends or a 22-12 degree bend and a 22-1/2 degree street bend might do the trick.

What do you recommend?

No flex fittings........

Yes two 22's or what ever you need to offset it.. Street fittings may be best as they swing easier...

Done

A pair of 1/16 bend (22-1/2 degree) elbows did the trick. Thanks for the help.
