With a few exceptions, the cleanout sections have been largely untouched for quite some time. Being not entirely familiar with the IPC I'll answer from a UPC perspective. The 100' cleanout dimension has existed longer than I've been involved with the plumbing trade. The oldest UPC i have at my desk is the 1988 version and it existed then. I suspect that if check my "old" National Standard, it's in there too. It's possible one was never installed, missed by an inspector as well as the installer, done without a permit, or covered by subsequent landscaping. If it is an older line and there is indeed a cleanout, it's also likely that a cast iron cleanout body was used along with a brass cleanout plug. You might try a metal detector to find a buried cap. Thought about running the camera down the stack? Often times, the cleanout is in the underfloor area, check there if not already. Good luck!

I'm new to the forum. Question on when (what year) did the ICC write/start having clean-outs every 100ft in residential building?
I'm a home inspector but I'm in the process of purchasing a home built in 1979 and I can't seem to find a clean-out besides pulling the toilet. I would like to scope the main line.
