3 piece bathroom rough in


I brought this house a little over a year ago and I started to develop the basement. I am currently installing the orvx subfloor panels but I want to rough in the bathroom first before installing the panels in the bathroom. The builder has roughed the bathroom for 3 piece but I am not sure what pipe is for which. Attached is the pictures of the bathroom. I believe Hole #1 is for the sink and Hole #2 is for shower but I would like this to be confirmed by others. Thanks!

3 piece bathroom rough in


is there a vent pipe in ceiling "between floor joist a capped pipe "for new plumbing

the one that is larger i think hole 2 might be a backwater valve remove cover or cap and see what is inside of it

the other one "hole one"covered in gravel is just capped off "what size is it" if you use it for tub or shower you will need to add trap and it could also be used to drain sink if plumbed right

There is a vent next to the washer/dryer(just to the right of the picture).

The builder has confirmed hole #2 is a backwater valve and Hole #1 is for the shower.

Hole #1 is 2" ready for a shower.
Hole #2 is Backwater valve.

Next questions is what do I need to plumb the shower and backwater valve to be able to install the subfloor?

Could you first tell me why a subfloor is going into the bathroom? What will you be using as the finished floor in that bath.

Water---concrete floors and wood subfloors are a bad combination.

Typically. the walls are framed first---shower pan installed--and rough plumbing and electrical--floors after that---but I wonder about the plywood on the concrete--

I am using the barricade 2X2 panels. Will be studding the wall after. The finished floor will be vinyl.

This subfloor system has insulation under the osb and is designed for basements to deal with the air and water problems.

Sorry,I'm not familiar with that system----I'd be concerned with moisture under the panels --

It states on the website that you can screw into the panels and will support a stud wall. If you use tiles you have to fasten the panels around the perimeter and throughout the center.
