    Flow Direction for Plumbing Fixtures

    I am trying to connect the plumbing fixtures within my Revit project. So far, I have been successful connecting the CW and HW to each of the fixtures by way of assigning the fixtures to "piping systems" (CW & HW); however, I am trying connect all of the fixtures for the SS (Sanitary), but I keep getting the following error message:

    "The application is unable to make a connection in that direction. If the connectors are pointing up, make sure that the elevations of the segments are above them. If the connectors are pointing down, make sure that the elevations of the segments are below them."

    I am still very new to Revit and appreciate any help!
    Thank you for your time!

    have you checked the family you are trying to connect to?
    Edit the family, select the sanitary connector and see what the flow direction is in the properties palette.

    I generally set our to bidirectional to try to avoid this issue
